Pink at Anfield. EVERYTHING you need to know
Are you ready for one hell of a spectacle? The Beautiful Trauma World Tour comes to Liverpool for one night only.
Pink brings her Beautiful Trauma World Tour to Anfield on Tuesday 25th June 2019 and we can’t wait!
What we love most about Pink’s music back catalogue is that it’s timeless. You can stick ‘Get The Party Started’ on before a night out now and the memories start flooding back. Broke up with your fella? Throw ‘Just Like a Pill’ on Alexa and sing your little heart out. Feeling the love with your mates, it’s got to be ‘Raise Your Glass’. Pink’s tracks has grown with us. If you’re too school for cool!
Pink is known for putting on a truly memorable show and as the last summer concert at Anfield, we’re hoping for amazing things. Will she be back up on the ropes for an aerial performance? What we are guaranteed is a show packed with uplifting, empowering pop anthems that we all adore. And what a venue to be watching one of the biggest selling and most influential female artists of the last 20 years!
Here’s everything you need to know if you’re going to see Pink at Anfield….

The best way to get to Anfield is by public transport. Parking is extremely limited and there will be some road closures in place ahead of the gig. Don’t get left outside, read on to plan your travel.
Merseyrail is not only operating regular services from the city to Sandhills station, its also teamed up with Soccerbus to run a shuttle service to Anfield from 5pm too. Get your train and bus combined tickets here.
The 917 shuttle service runs from Lime St/St George’s Plateau from 4pm on Tuesday. This service will also operate from 10pm after the gig for the return route.
From Liverpool city centre you can also get on the 26 at Liverpool ONE or the 17 from Queen Square Bus Station. The 68/168 also connects Anfield to Bootle and Aigburth. Head to www.merseytravel.gov.uk to check times and routes.
2 – Times
Doors at the stadium open at 5pm and support acts will also be starting at 5pm. The gig is expected to finish before 11pm at the latest. More info can be found here.
3 – Support x 3
Pink brings not one special guest, but three to Anfield on Tuesday 25th June. Both Vance Joy and KidCutUp form part of the Beautiful Trauma World Tour UK leg. Australian Vance has picked up a haul of award nominations and accolades since releasing his debut EP ‘Go Loves You When You’re Dancing’ back in 2013. Watch his cover of P!nk’s What About Us here. KidCutUp takes to the decks and will be rocking the Anfield crowds ahead of the main event, while Doncaster three-piece Bang Bang Romeo are joining the tour for a bunch of dates ahead of their debut album release in the autumn. They’re psyched about playing Anfield!
4 – LFC & Liverpool
Playing Anfield Stadium is a major coop for any artist. Pink has the honour of being the last artist to perform at Anfield in this summer programme of concerts and joins the likes of Take That, Rick Astley, The Manic Street Preachers and Bon Jovi on the 2019 bill. Will P!nk follow suit and perform a tribute to the city?
5 – Anfield Do’s & Don’t
As with all stadiums there’s some advice on what you can and can’t take inside. Try and carry what you need in your pockets or in a small bag as anything larger than an A5 piece of paper wont be permitted. No umbrellas, glass or plastic bottles bigger than 500ml, signs or banners on poles, selfie sticks or big cameras.
You don’t need to hit up an ATM before the gig as Anfield is a card-friendly. All food and drink kiosks are cashless so no need to have change rattling round when you’re busting moves. Full list of FAQ’s here.
6 – There You Go!
The gig is set to finish at 10:30pm and if you’re not quite ready to head home, we’ve got a few recommendations to Raise Your Glass.
First up there’s an official after show party! The Boot Room Sports Café at Anfield will host a post-gig bash with Radio City DJ Lee Butler and special guests on the decks with a fully licensed late bar. Tickets are £25 and are available here.

7 – Tickets
Here’s 7 things we LOVE about Pink….
1 – She Keeps It Real
In all honesty we could cite ‘she keeps it real’ for all 7 points here because this is what sets Pink apart. She’s authentic, honest and values integrity. She interacts with her fans in so many different ways, makes time to invest in them and her lyrics speak to a generation. What a gal!
2 – There You Go
Pink released her first single ‘There You Go’ 19 years ago, yep it was 2000! Since then she’s released 8 studio albums, sold more than 40 million albums and 50 million singles world wide. She’s starred in more than 10 different filming projects and the Beautiful Trauma World Tour is her 8th time out on the road. Safe to safe she’s been busy.
3 – All The Awards
Grammy’s, Billboard Top 100’s, Billboard Music Awards, MTV Music Video Awards, Woman of the Year, World Music Award, Hollywood Walk Of Fame, the second most played female solo artist in the UK in the 2000’s, behind Madonna and an Outstanding Contribution to Music Award from the BRITs.
4 – Bikini Bottom Fame
We’re still a bit shocked at this one. As if Pink could get any cooler? Did you know she starred as herself in an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants, joining the likes of Johnny Depp, Dennis Quaid, Will Ferrell and Tina Fey!
5 – So What?
When Pink began writing song lyrics as a pre-teen, it was a way of dealing with and accepting her feelings. As a fully-fledged, successful female artist, she’s connected with a generation with tracks like ‘So What’, ”Just Give Me A Reason’ and ‘True Love’ which document her own relationship highs and lows.
6 – Lady Marmalade
Two words why we love P!nk, Lady Marmalade. The 2001 dream collaboration of P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliot, Mya and Lil Kim got together to record the track for the film Moulin Rouge and without shadow of a doubt, Pink was the most kick ass.
7 – Parenting Skills
Fuck it that’s awesome! Seeing as I’ve only had 8 of them. Hahahaha someone buy me something liquid!!!!! And thank you to all my peeps!!!!! GRATITUDE!!!!!! Willow better not roll her eyes at me tomorrow cuz I’m fancy AF https://t.co/WX7DR4UBED
