Review of Pink ‘Beautiful Trauma’ Show in Bossier City
Pink stopped in Bossier City for one of the first stops on her "Beautiful Trauma" tour. She posted a video on Instagram of her rehearsing the dance numbers from the show on the Shreveport Riverfront from Saturday morning.
The CenturyLink Center was a near sellout for this spectacular show. Everyone was ready to have fun, dance and sing along to her many big hits. If there is one artist that has an opening song, Pink has that song and she did not disappoint. She enters handing from a massive chandelier singing her signature song "Get the Party Started" which set the stage for the party atmosphere of the night.
She comes down from the contraption and launches into the powerful "Beautiful Trauma" to slow things down a bit accompanied by many of her dancers decked out in pink outfits.
Of the many high tech gadgets at the show was the moving runway extending into the crowd. One side of the runway moved toward the crowd and she laid down and greeted fans personally as she launched into "Just Like a Pill". The other side of the runway moved her back toward center stage.
The crowd jumped in to sing along with her mega hit "Who Knew". One of my favorite moments of the show was her rendition of the Nirvana monster hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit". She has some monster pipes and she shows it off on this tune.
A few songs later, the crowd was treated to more acrobatic stunts by the singer as she belted out "Raise Your Glass", another one of her megahits.
For one of the final shows of the night, Pink flies through the entire arena with her powerful top hit "So What".
I'm pretty sure she lip sync'd several of the numbers at this show, especially the ones that had her flying through the air, but she did sing live much of the time with a backing track. She's got some serious pipes and wowed the crowd.
