The Beautiful Trauma World Tour show is everything you would expect from seeing an artist who belongs to the upper echelon of the music industry and is a major influence nowadays. At the show in Boston on Monday night, Pink brought it all – a powerful voice, an outstanding performance, and unbelievable stage settings.
She is an absolute professional and watching the show, you quickly realize why she belongs to the top of the top. The fact that she is singing while doing major acrobatic acts, which include poses leaving her hanging head down from the ceiling, is just unbelievable. Multiple outfit and stage setting changes keep the show high pace and exciting. This is supported by special effects, such as fireworks, real fire on stage, and powerful lighting. My personal favorite was the stage setting which resembled a dark and enchanted forest with the dancers wearing animal masks and carrying candlesticks. It was the perfect blend between a bizarre and creative scene and it pulled you into a different world.
Pink has a voice and she definitely knows how to use it! On top of an outstanding performance, Pink also sent out the important message about the need for more tolerance in the world. This was mainly done in two videos with strong words, and the audience was loving it. She also directly engaged with the crowed. She shook hands with the people in the first row and took the time to acknowledge presents her fans brought along for her. She also introduced the band and dancers. While doing so their names appeared in bold letters on the big screen. Needless to say this makes a very likable and down-to-earth personality.
Overall, the show is definitely worth the price of admission. It is entertaining, meaningful, and cheers you up. I saw many smiling faces in the diverse audience which ranged from families attending the concerts, to college kids and a more major crowed who were looking for a fun night in the city.
