BST Hyde Park

In a stunning showcase of talent and entertainment, last night Pink took to the Great Oak Stage at Hyde Park, to perform a captivating show which closed her weekend at the BST festival. An awe-inspiring experience, her limitless energy, exceptional connection with the crowd, astonishing circus abilities, and unwavering vocals took the spotlight and created a really really entertaining evening. Although there were a few moments of slight lulls, the other exhilarating moments more than made up for them, resulting in a truly unforgettable evening of pure enjoyment.

Pink's natural ability to engage with her audience was truly extraordinary. From the moment she stepped onto the stage, she effortlessly commanded everyone's attention with her charming presence. She skilfully interacted with the crowd throughout the concert, making each person feel like an integral part of the performance. From taking various teddy bears, to celebrating first concert experiences and showcasing a fan's artwork, her interactions were authentic and heartfelt, creating a really welcoming atmosphere and some truly memorable audience experiences.

It's not a Pink show without some gravity defying circus acts and even at the vast open air venue she did not disappoint. Whether she was soaring high above the stage showing aerial silks or executing some beautiful choreography whilst suspended in the air, her talent left spectators in awe. These mesmerising moments added a dynamic element to the show, that truly showcased Pink's versatility and fearlessness as an artist, cementing her as one of the best in the business.

Pink's vocals remained flawless throughout the entire evening, delivering powerful performances filled with precision and emotion. Her voice effortlessly spanned a wide range of genres, captivating the audience with its raw power and vulnerability. Whether performing a song she'd written or one by someone else, each note was infused with passion and authenticity, leaving a lasting impact on everyone fortunate enough to witness her remarkable talent firsthand.

As the sun began to set, the lighting design flawlessly complemented the changing atmosphere, creating a visual spectacle that enhanced the overall experience. The lighting design effectively worked alongside the sun and shadows of nature, and the golden hue which accompanied the sunset was especially magical as it bathed the stage in a captivating glow.

Adding another layer of depth to the performance, the well-incorporated video elements were super effective. During the poignant song Irrelevant, large screens displayed videos highlighting female empowerment and the Black Lives Matter movement, creating a really significant and moving moment. These thoughtful additions not only showcased Pink's commitment to social justice but also deeply resonated with the audience, reminding everyone of the transformative power of music.

Pink's concert at Hyde Park was a remarkable demonstration of talent that left an enduring impression on all attendees. Her exceptional audience interaction, mind-blowing circus skills, and flawless vocals were the pillars of an evening that will be cherished. While there were fleeting moments of respite, they were quickly overshadowed by the sheer energy and excitement that filled the show. An undeniable triumph and a testament to her artistry, Pink and her team created a multi-sensory experience that was a treat for all in attendance.
