About the show

The show itself was split into four acts, each representing her three albums and an acoustic act. For the first act, to support her album Can't Take Me Home, Pink sported a massive pink Mohican, a throwback to her pink-haired R&B Can't Take Me Home days. For the second act, to support Missundaztood, she wore a long blond wig and a red leather jacket. For the acoustic act, she wore a long blue, red and white dress. For the fourth act, to support Try This, she lost the wigs and performed in a rock chick style get up. Finally, for the encore, she came dressed up in an outfit fitting for a cover of the Guns N' Roses song "Welcome to the Jungle". For the finale, she performs "Get The Party Started" up in the air.
