Review: P!nk's Unforgettable Omaha Concert Might Be The Best Concert We've Seen
On Tuesday at the sold-out CHI Health Center, the "Walk Me Home" and "Raise Your Glass" pop superstar put on a powerful and high-engaging performance.
The superstar, Pink is certainly known for in-your-face pop anthems and attention-grabbing stage plots that includes fireworks, acrobatics, and much more. If you attend the concert, you noticed that nobody in the arena had as good a time as Pink at Pink's Concert. She filled the night with laughter and connecting with fans and her backing band. Her voice filled the CHI Health Center as she was as active as any dancer.
Throughout the night, Pink belted out songs - "Get the Party Started," "beautiful Trauma," "Just Give Me a Reason" and many others. In the middle of the concert, Pink stated "Best day ever,". Just so happens that yesterday, Pink's recent album Hurts 2B Human debuted #1 on the Billboard charts.
Pink played two songs from the new record, “Hustle” and “Walk Me Home.” Her pack of loyal fans already knew every word, and the latter song’s anthemic chorus turned it into a rousing singalong.
Though the concert was full of every concert production trick imaginable — dancers and fire and acrobatics and costumes and ballads and fireworks and confetti and soaring sets — Pink made it rememberable with her attitude, enthusiasm and, most of all, her music.
Pink’s opener Julia Michaels welcomed the crowd as her she mentioned that this was her first time performing in Omaha, NE. Michaels is one of pop’s most successful songwriters, as a medley of some of her credits (including Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Selena Gomez’s “Good For You”) illustrated Tuesday. But as a performer, Michaels perfectly conveyed the emotions of her material.
Milwaukee’s DJ, KidCutUp also opened Tuesday, but this wasn’t a one-off gig. That was the case two years ago, when the veteran DJ born Tim Zick opened for Pink at Summerfest. He’s been touring with her ever since, and you can see why, entertaining the crowd Thursday with creative mash-ups of Salt-N-Pepa with Bon Jovi, Missy Elliott with Milwaukee’s Violent Femmes, and more.
