Pink Returns to V Festival After Fire Erupted Onstage During First Headlining Performance
Tickets for V Festival were quickly sold out after Pink was announced as one of the headliners. However, the songstress’ much-anticipated set turned disastrous after a firework stunt went wrong and fire sparked on the stage in the middle of her first headlining performance.
“The fire started when a firework went off and hit the top of the stage,” a source told The Sun. “It started off small but then kept growing until a bloke climbed up to the top to put it out. It was really worrying at one point but Pink just kept singing.”
Despite the blaze, Pink bravely continued to perform onstage while some crew members extinguished the fire before it got out of control. Things were getting more awkward when the singer forgot the lyrics of her new song “What About Us”. She coolly admitted that she couldn’t remember the words, saying, “Usually takes me about four years to learn a song. I wish I’d stop shaking thank you for having me 10 years later. I forgot so many words tonight.”
Pink made a triumphant return to the V Festival stage on the following night. The singer rocked her second headlining set at Weston Park, Staffordshire on Sunday, August 20. Donning a baggy jacket and tattered trousers, Pink delivered show-stopping performances as she showed off her powerful vocal and did energetic choreography with a group of dancers.
