A behind the scenes look at P!nk as she balances family and life on tour in the build up to her first Wembley Stadium performance in 2019 during her Beautiful Trauma world tour!
All I Know So Far is that good that I have already watched it twice before even being able to write a review around it and also constantly been listening to all of Pink’s music for the past three weeks after that first viewing, which has been so wonderful to take me back to different times and stages in my life when different albums came out. I am actually ashamed to admit that I forgot how big of a P!nk fan I have always been and how much of an impact the Missundaztood album had on me back in 2001 when it was released.
Throughout this documentary we get an inside look into her family life and how touring with two children is not the easiest thing in the world, but important to create some amazing family memories around the world. Then we also get to see how truly difficult it is to put on stadium gigs, the amount of time and effort that goes into the stage and working out how the performances are going to look, and push the boundaries.
We see the build up to the Wembley Stadium date from other places in Europe and how this impacts not only Pink, but her husband Carey and their two children Willow and Jameson. How they try to be a normal family, having adventures and spending time together. Just with rehearsals and amazing stadium gigs thrown into it all. She comes across as incredibly down to earth and just trying to be the best mother she can be, a truly inspirational way to fit loving her work and family at the same time. Going on tour without her children and husband does not even look like it would be an option.
It contains some truly lovely and wonderful moments which are so heartwarming and then also hilarious as well. We see her as one of the biggest stars in the world, but to her kids she is just “Mom” and I think that is utterly brilliant. The relationship with Carey is another great thing to see on screen that he is so supportive and proud of everything she has achieved and continued to achieve.
Considering COVID-19 and no live gigs and performances, especially to the volume and level of stadium gigs it is great to see this from 2019 back when everything was normal. It gives us hope that one day we might get back to a stadium that is utterly packed to see our favourite artist or band live again. This highlights the sheer volume of people that are involved in making an amazing show, I love how much creative input she has into the routines and is willing to go one step further when it comes to flying around not only the stage but the whole stadium! Especially after it has gone wrong in the past, what she does around Wembley is utterly breathtaking. I cannot even begin to imagine how that must have felt being in the stadium to see and witness it live.
Great timing from Amazon in terms of the release of this, as already mentioned watching a documentary or recorded concert is the closest we are going to get to live music in a packed venue for probably a long time yet. I loved seeing the relationships between everyone involved in the tour, including the dancers and backstage workers. Seeing her children really enjoying themselves is also something to make you smile throughout, leaving you to wonder just how she manages to balance it all so well.
