A BROKEN bus may've meant Pink was late to the party, but when she exploded onto the stage in stunning style, boy did it really get started.

With the blast of a cannon, a giant gift box suspended above the pumped-up crowd burst open and she plunged to the stage like Batman; brimming with attitude.

The next hour-and-a-half was packed with hit after hit, including favourites such as Funhouse, I'm Not Dead, U + Ur Hand, a beautiful acoustic version of I Don't Believe You and a beautifully naughty version of Bad Influence among others.

Visually stunning in all respects, the crowd went wild as she sang suspended upside down by silk ropes and later surfed the crowd while inside a giant plastic ball.

A fearless and funny performer, she happily headed down into the audience - who earlier had bombarded her with toys and frog underwear, she has a thing for frogs you see - hugging fans and signing various body parts.

Her band, back-up singers and dancers were top class while Butch Walker and the Black Widows were the best of the support acts earlier in the day.

His subsequent vocal duel with the American rock goddess - him singing the Who classic My Generation, her the Green Day anthem Basketcase - was a pure joy. Almost bettered by their rocking cover of the Police's Roxanne.

Finishing as she started, she took to the wire again, zipping and spinning over the over the heads of the excited crowd to the strains of So What. A fantastic evening.
