Sensory overload is the only way to accurately describe the Beautiful Trauma Tour which took over Toronto on Tuesday evening. Fans of all ages from 6 to 60 flocked to the Air Canada Centre, some with freshly dyed pink hair in homage to Pink to witness night one of two sold out concerts.
P!nk is no stranger to adding acrobatics to her performances and Toronto was no exception, starting off the night with “Get This Party Started”. P!nk was hanging from the largest chandelier I have ever seen high in the rafters of the Air Canada Centre. The fans needed no prompting to get out of their seats as they jumped up on the very first note.
P!nk’s larger than life persona resonated throughout the whole entire show but she made a point of waving, smiling and even shaking hands of some lucky fans consistently through the concert. At one moment during the show she pointed out one concertgoer “I can see you, you in your sequins” which undoubtedly made that fans evening.
We were all given a huge surprise as Niagara’s own Dallas Green was brought on stage to do a duet of “You + Me”. The duet was soft and sweet which was quite the contrast from the rest of the evening. P!nk even dropped a hint that there may be another recording with the duet in the near future.
Flawlessly belting out song after song P!nk used every square inch of the arena, flying high over head during numerous songs. Topping off the night while performing “So What” she flew to the 300 section and then across the entire arena feeling like she was so close you could almost touch her.
There is so much more I could add to this review like the pyro, confetti, a 30ft high marionette puppet of Eminem, and a set list, but I would rather suggest you go and see the show for yourself. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the kick ass band that was backing her tonight, playing note for note with what looked like the greatest of ease.
I have been a long time fan of P!nk, not necessarily for just her music but what she stands for, women empowerment. In the words of P!nk “It feels really good to say I’m just a girl In 2018”
Once again thanks to the crew because without them there is no show!
