Superstar Pink is in town tonight!

IPSWICH: With just hours to go until the performance of the year, the final preparations are under way for Pink’s arrival in Ipswich.

Thousands of adoring fans will descend on Portman Road tonight to watch international superstar Pink take to the stage in a highly- anticipated performance which is set to wow fans.

The 30-year-old American singer-songwriter is venturing to Ipswich as part of her Funhouse Carnival Tour – and it is one of only six outdoor arena dates she is playing in the UK this year. She is set to be supported by VV Brown, Hockey and Butch Walker.

With a string of acrobatic talents to her name, the performer is expected to make a grand entrance to captivate her army of fans.

Last month, the talented songstress told the Evening Star that she found it exciting to perform her death-defying stunts.

“It’s so much fun. It all started off pretty simple but it’s developed from there,” she said.

“You need to have more for a show and I have to keep challenging myself all the time. You’ve got to make it bigger and bolder and brasher or what’s the point?”
