Entertain Us (17-7-2018): Tickled Pink

PINK delighted fans when she announced her Beautiful Trauma World Tour would be heading down under for multiple arena shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

It’s been five years since the star graced our shores and her 2013 Truth About Love Tour remains the biggest-selling tour by a solo female artist in Australia.

I went to her Adelaide show night at the Entertainment Centre on Friday, when she stayed true to her reputation for being up-close and personal with fans as she completely stunned.

Pink burst onto the stage, or I should say into the air, starting the show with her well-known acrobatic moves.

Picture thousands of people mesmerised, with their heads in the air and mouths open, as Pink swung all over the arena while belting out entire songs. I seriously got puffed out just watching her.

Each song got better and better and she kept the audience on its toes, crowd members not knowing what she was going to do or from where she would appear.

It was sensory overload, from extreme flames during her song Just Like Fire to more whirlwind aerobatics.

Despite all the jaw-dropping stunts I could not fault Pink’s voice and on more than one occasion she just stood and sang, really connecting with fans across the entire room.

In true Pink style, she used her show to highlight issues close to her heart including poverty, same-sex marriage and mental health.

In particular the self-conscious remarks of her 6-year-old daughter Willow, who claims she looks like a boy, really pulled on the heart strings.  

Pink encouraged individuality and being true to yourself, telling the crowd she had stated to Willow, “Mama has always looked different to what the music industry expects, but do I sell out arenas around the world? Hell yes!”

Aussie band The Rubens opened playing fan favourites including Hoops while also providing a taste of new album Lo La Ru with single Never, Ever and will continue to tour with Pink throughout the Australian leg of her tour.
