Girls that rage: P!nk ignites Key Arena

P!NK
BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA WORLD TOUR
KEY ARENA
May 13


Even the Washington Department of Transportation had P!nk's Beautiful Trauma World Tour clearly illustrated on Seattle's weekend traffic map, our platinum-coiffed heroine drawn somewhere over Queen Anne, dangling from aerial silks. And stop traffic she did, delivering nearly two hours of electrifying show-womanship that proved when it comes to acrobatic choreography, kaleidoscopic visuals, and pitch perfect vocals, P!nk is in a class of exactly one.

Making her grand entrance in a head to toe silver-sequined jumpsuit, P!nk swung from a massive hot pink chandelier for a feisty 'Get The Party Started.' At 39, P!nk isn't a tourist when it comes to aerial work. Years of training and natural ability have given her the enviable stamina to perform nearly two-dozen songs on key and almost entirely in motion (even on the ground she's being lifted or bounding from one side of the stage to the other). Anyone can get into a harness and flit around on guided wires these days, but P!nk's fly-girl antics serve up Cirque du Solei realness.

Flashy costume changes and rapidly-mutating backdrops provided plenty to absorb through a rich set of hits and fan favorites including 'Beautiful Trauma,' 'Just Like a Pill' and 'Who Knew.' A 40-foot Eminem blow-up doll 'sang' along on 'Revenge'; claymation figures and Day-Glo animation flashed during 'Funhouse' and punked out covers of 'Just a Girl' and 'Smells Like Team Spirit.'

From rebel-woman to a jewel-toned hooded heroine wandering in the woods, 'Try' and 'Just Give Me a Reason' formed the darker portion of the show. As socially conscious as she is unclassifiable, the tone changed again as video screens flickered with social and political touchstones of the past year. Images of Emma Gonzalez and the Parkland survivors speaking out were emotional counterpoints to the evening's frivolity, ending with glimpses of #MeToo victims and P!nk's humanitarian visits. Her need to write, as one clip explained, provides an outlet for frustration and solidarity. A triumphant 'What About Us' drove the point home, lady-power once again reigning supreme.

It's easy to forget that P!nk, with her ass-kicking, glam-tomboy style and unstoppable talent, paved the way for many a young crossover artist to defy definition. From bona fide hit record Missundaztood to her powerhouse vocals on the Moulin Rouge soundtrack's 'Lady Marmalade' P!nk stood out. It's hard to imagine the Taylors, Mileys and Katys of today would feel as comfortable flitting from glamour to combat boots without the example of the pink-haired lady that rapped, stomped, and crooned her way into '00s pop music. P!nk may be almost 40 and a happily married mother of two, but she - and all those younger ladies - will never go quietly into middle-adulthood.

Next came 'Barbies,' 'I Am Here,' 'Raise Your Glass,' and 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss).' She encored with 'So What' and 'Glitter in the Air,' sheer delight in live performance written all over her face. The Beautiful Trauma World Tour kicked off in March and will, incredibly, continue through May 2019, whisking her chosen family of dancers and musicians through a deep dive of Australia and New Zealand before returning to the US next spring. The lady is clearly at the top of her game with no sign of stopping - drop everything and get tickets when she comes around again!
