It was all happening at Hampden over the weekend as Pink wowed her thousands of Glasgow fans.
We’ve seen videos of Pink flying around the national stadium with her acrobatic stunts, a couple get engaged in the middle of her show, while the ‘So What’ star was also spotted milling about a Glasgow park in the build-up to her big perfomance.
There’s little doubt, Glasgow loves Pink.
And yet there’s still more to be told.A Glasgow Live reader has been in touch to share his tale of how he was re-united with the global superstar this weekend – 15 years after she strapped him to a chair.In 2004, Bobby Hunter was called up onto the SECC stage by Pink – after queuing for five hours to get to the front – and was the centre of attention for the Glasgow crowd as the singer danced around him – and whipped him – while she was in the city for her Try This tour.
Bobby said: “She sang a full song to me, dancing all over me. Her and her dancers were whipping me whilst tied up.”
Thankfully, Pink’s backing dancers took a polaroid photo of the moment, something the ‘die hard fan’ has cherished ever since.
And at this weekend’s show, Bobby took the opportunity to remind his idol all about it.The Glasgow gig-goer had the photo blown up on to a piece of fabric, with the goal of getting it onto the stage and into the hands of the multi-platinum-selling star … after queuing for four hours outside the national stadium – he pulled it off.And the incredible moment was captured in video and photo, with a clearly stunned, yet delighted Pink breaking song to tell the crowd: “I once strapped you to a chair”, as seen in the video above
Bobby further shared his excitement and said: “I threw it up to her, she looked at it and stopped singing for a minute and spoke. It was amazing.
“I actually couldn’t believe that I managed to get it to her. I also got a hug, but there’s no films of that – I still cant believe she even got it and stopped singing.”
And although Bobby managed to avoid getting strapped down and whipped this time round, he admitted he was overwhelmed to be able to see Pink perform live again, calling her ‘an inspiration’.
He told us: “She was loving it! It must be amazing being able to be as talented and inspirational as her.
“Like many around the world, we have all been through hard times in life and her music has helped me through some of the bad times! I just adore her.”
Another incredible story from Hampden this weekend, and we’re sure Bobby will back at the very next time Pink comes to town.
