P!nk promises stunts on upcoming tour

P!nk has promised fans exciting stunts on her upcoming Summer Carnival tour, which kicks off later this year.

P!nk’s performances always stand out, from her high energy and unique music to her seemingly death-defying stunts. Over the years, these have included pushing a stuntman down a flight of stairs, showing off her incredible aerial skills and dancing on top of a suspended car.

Despite being involved in a serious stunt mishap in 2010, she is determined to give her fans their money’s worth by continuing to perform her superhuman stunts on her upcoming world tour.

Not all stunts go according to plan though, with one such incident coming about during a 2010 performance in Germany, P!nk was pulled through the air and into a safety barrier. The stunt gone wrong occurred as she was securing herself into her safety harness which led to her requiring hospitalisation. She later tweeted “Ok all my lovers out there- nothings broken, no fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore“.

But despite being well into her 40’s, the Trustfall singer told Music Week she will continue to include stunts in her breathtaking performances. “The insurance company’s like, ‘You’re getting older,'” she said. “And I’m like, ‘Yeah, well, you’re cutting the cheque – look I can still do a full split!'”

P!nk has said that she hates it when she visits shows where the artists are simply there to make money. “You can tell when you go to a show and the artist cares, and you can tell when they don’t” she said. “I’ve been to those shows when they don’t and it’s offensive- it’s offensive to me that you would take somebody’s money”.

“Don’t just take people’s money then go up there with your hand is in your pocket sitting on an amp singing a song that I loved as a child” she added. “Don’t ruin my life, f*** you. That’s how I feel about it. And I’ve been to those shows, and I hate them. I won’t listen to their songs anymore”.
