Following a triumphant night at the Video Music Awards (wherein she arrived on a fire truck, performed while swinging on a trapeze and managed to look better in a dress than Shakira), Pink headed across the country to Seattle to launch her Funhouse tour at the Key Arena.
The singer opened the show with the announcement that though she had separated her shoulder, she would not let the injury impede her performance. That made the next two hours all the more impressive, as Pink danced, swung and flew around the stage, making multiple costume changes while running through a string of her biggest hits. The stage was set up to look like a sort of energetic, dark carnival, as though Britney Spears' Circus tour had been slathered with greasepaint and become overrun by gypsies. Though this time she sang "Sober" while standing on the ground, she did take to the air for the opening of the show, which led into the set-opening "Bad Influence."
She chose a handful of covers to match the spectacle, too, as the singer tore into epic versions of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" and Led Zeppelin's "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You." But it was her own tunes that brought on the biggest pops of the night, especially the show-closing one-two punch of "Get the Party Started" and "Glitter in the Air." The massive Funhouse tour continues tomorrow in San Jose, California, and then tears across the United States, culminating in a stop at New York City's Madison Square Garden before she crosses the pond to tackle Europe.
