Abu Dhabi GP: Pink brings F1 to a close with a rocking show at du Arena

The US pop star gave the crowd what they wanted with a greatest hits performance

With the Abu Dhabi F1 race-day concert being the most prestigious of the regional concert season, Pink lived up to the occasion with a high octane set on Sunday night.

The 38-year-old pop star, who elected to stay away from the celebrity action of the Yas Marina Circuit earlier in the day in order to prepare for the show, was in high spirits with a set encompassing nearly two decades’ worth of hits.

Backed by her seven-piece band and a troupe of dancers, she stomped onto the stage with a typically feisty rendition of Let's Get the Party Started.

The rock vibe continued with U + Ur Hand, which features a sky-high hair metal chorus tailor-made for a mammoth venue such as the Du Arena.

The anthems followed throughout the night, with Just Like a Pill, which had Pink testing the crowd's vocals to great success, and the rollicking Trouble.

Pink capped off another successful after-race concert series which began on Thursday with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, followed by US rapper J Cole and British folk rockers Mumford & Sons on Friday and Saturday respectively.
