This was a show I was very excited for. So few bands these days *cough* do any type of show these days. If you’re playing in front of a bunch of people, put on a show! Pink did just that last week at the Verizon Center.

She basically threw the kitchen sink at the audience, starting with some incredible aerial acrobatics while attached to a few giant bungee cords. Throw in some pyro for good measure, and these are not your normal, every day concert photos, for sure.

After that the show calmed down a bit (at least for our allotted three songs) with Pink and her backup dancers showing off their moves. I used a rented 400mm/2.8 with a 1.4 teleconverter and while I was a little closer than I would have liked for the aerial acrobatics, it was the perfect distance when Pink was roaming around on the stage.
