American Express presents BST Hyde Park brought together an impressive lineup of talented female artists, with P!NK headlining the event. Joined by the incomparable Gwen Stefani, Tinashe, and Lyra, the concert last night was a memorable experience for the 65,000+ crowd. P!NK’s show was filled with her signature aerial stunts and chart-topping hits, showcasing her energy and talent. Additionally, Gwen Stefani proved to be an excellent supporting artist, delivering an energetic performance that delighted fans.
P!NK’s unforgettable performance
P!NK, also known as Alecia Beth Moore Hart, astounded the audience with her incredible stage presence and extensive repertoire. The Summer Carnival tour set, adorned with a shimmering silver palm tree and four cranes for P!NK’s aerial acrobatics, provided a visually stunning backdrop.
Launching onto the stage attached to a bungee sling, she kicked off the performance with the crowd-favourite “Get The Party Started” and continued with hits like “Raise Your Glass,” “Just Like A Pill,” and “Trustfall.” P!NK’s rousing vocals captivated the audience, and her trademark aerial stunts left everyone in awe, including fans who had travelled from Wales and other parts of the UK.
One of the highlights of the evening was when P!NK invited her daughter, Willow Sage Hart, on stage for a heartwarming performance of “Cover Me In Sunshine.” She also showcased her versatility by performing the melancholic “Kids In Love,” a song specially written for her by Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit. P!NK’s rendition of “No Ordinary Love,” originally by Sade, provided a beautiful backdrop to the sing-along of the more mature audience. Throughout the show, P!NK received various gifts from fans, emphasising the connection she has with her dedicated audience.
The electrifying set reached its crescendo with a breathtaking display of fireworks as P!NK soared through the air attached to bungee ropes, concluding the performance with her iconic anthem, “So What?” P!NK’s ability to command the stage, engage the crowd, and deliver an unforgettable performance solidified her status as a captivating live performer.
Gwen Stefani’s energetic set
Gwen Stefani, the second headliner for the Great Oak Stage, proved to be an excellent complement to P!NK’s show. Stefani, exuding boundless energy, performed a dynamic set that delighted the audience.
The star performed a plethora of her much-loved solo hits, including “Sweet Escape,” “Hollaback Girl,” “Rich Girl,” and “Cool,” each complemented with iconic No Doubt anthems such as “Underneath It All,” “Hey Baby,” and “Don’t Speak.”
Stefani’s stage presence was infectious, and her genuine enthusiasm for performing in London after 16 years was palpable. She expressed her love for the city and gratitude to her fans, creating an unforgettable experience that left fans cheering and singing along to every word.
P!NK and Gwen Stefani truly brought their A-game to the BST Hyde Park 2023 gigs during the Summer Carnival of their European tour. Both artists showcased their unique and bold fashion choices, making a statement on the stage.

Her looks were a perfect blend of rock ‘n’ roll edge and feminine glamour, capturing the essence of her aerial and musical performance.
Gwen Stefani, on the other hand, brought her signature retro-inspired style to the stage. With her love for all things vintage, she effortlessly blended elements of punk and pop culture into her outfits.
Gwen stunned the audience with her dazzling array of geometrical black and white, zebra coloured paired with sequins and crystals in intricately designed ensembles, complete with bold prints, metallic accents, and retro accessories.
