Pink drops 100 feet on wire to land on Isle Of Wight Festival stage

Singer brings Funhouse tour to event

Pink brought her Funhouse stage show to the Isle Of Wight Festival this evening (June 13), making a dramatic entrance from a great height to kick off the performance.

The US singer began the set inside a large box suspended from a crane, then dropped down to the stage attached to wires and started singing a short version of ‘Get This Party Started’.

Later in the set she introduced her songwriting partner Butch Walker, who played guitar and sang with her on ‘Mean’ and short covers of The Who‘s ‘My Generation’, Green Day‘s ‘Basket Case’ and The Police‘s ‘Roxanne’.

During the end of ‘Roxanne’, Pink climbed into a huge inflatable ball and rolled around on top of the crowd before returning to the stage for the song’s climax.

“I can’t believe I’m playing on the same stage as Paul McCartney,” she later said. “And he’s a vegetarian too.”

For her encore she was attached to more wires and sang ‘So What’ while performing acrobatics above the crowd between the stage and the mixing desk.

Pink played:

‘Get This Party Started’
‘Ave Mary A’
‘Who Knew’
‘Just Like A Pill’
‘I’m Not Dead’
‘I Don’t Believe You’
‘Dear Mr President’
‘My Generation’/’Basket Case’
‘Try Too Hard’
‘Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely)’
‘So What’
