Pink (often stylized as P!nk) was at Madison Square Garden earlier this week for a pair of shows at “The World’s Most Famous” arena as part of the veteran pop singer’s ongoing 2019 Beautiful Trauma World Tour. The first of two performances took place on Tuesday, and saw her welcome her fellow musician and previous collaborator Chris Stapleton to the stage to help perform “Love Me Anyway”.The two had originally recorded the romantic ballad on Pink’s new 2019 studio album, Hurts 2B Human. While the surprise sit-in may not have been as dramatic as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s recent viral duet of “Shallow”, it has grabbed the attention of Pink and Stapleton fans due to the fact that the two have rarely performed the song together live since its release—if at all. Then again, it would be difficult for the country music star to join Pink on her North American tour when he’s been busy filming scenes for Game of Thrones.You can watch the surprise Pink/Chris Stapleton collab from Tuesday’s show in the video below:Pink with Chris Stapleton – “Love Me Anyway” – 5/21/2019[Video: Michael Winbaum]The two NYC performances marked the end of the North American leg of Pink’s world tour. Her next scheduled performance will see the tour pick up again for the start of the international leg of shows on June 16th in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
