Pink Funhouse Tour: Live In Australia (2009/Sony Music Blu-ray)


Picture: B- Sound: B Extras: C+ Concert: B-



Pink has been a very good Pop/Rock/Soul singer with a better sense of music than most performers of her generation, especially with hits like Get The Party Started and others that have made her a survivor of the more-fickle-than-ever music business. With her new Funhouse Tour: Live In Australia concert, she does what she can to outdo herself and succeeds more often than not.


She performs 24 songs in all (two are bonus tracks here) and besides the great stage set, changes in style and great singer and musician backup, she also performs more athletic stunts than expected. As well, she also surprises with covers of classic hits by Queen (Bohemian Rhapsody), Led Zeppelin (Babe Im Gonna Leave You) and The DiVinyls (I Touch Myself) that may not eclipse the original works, but are far more effective than expected and fun. The audience seems to agree.


She gives it her all and that makes it one of the best concert Blu-rays we have seen of late performance-wise. Even if you are not sure about her and are not a big fan, you should definitely catch this show.


The 1080i 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image has some motion blur and is shot on HD Video, but also some really good color throughout thanks to the high quality, pricey costumes and set designs. There are some fine shots here. The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless mix is the highlight of the release with a solid soundfield throughout and though it is not always stunning, it is warm and rich. I just wished it had been even more dynamic. Extras include the On Tour With Pink featurette, Bloopers and spoofy How To Shred The Gnar.
