An attendee of a recent Pink show used the opportunity to toss their mother’s ashes onto the stage, visibly perplexing the singer.

As seen in understandably viral footage, Pink was performing her 2002 Missundaztood single “Just Like a Pill” during a show in London when the ashes—housed in a clear bag—were tossed onto the stage.

Pink is seen holding up the bag in front of the crowd, at which point she addresses the fan who apparently inserted it into her performance.

“This is your mom?” Pink asked. “I don’t know how I feel about this.” 

The singer then placed the bag of ashes on the ground toward the edge of the stage before finishing the song.

Pink is currently in the middle of her global Summer Carnival 2023 tour, which is set to hit the U.S. in July starting with a show at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Additional U.S. stops include Philadelphia, Las Vegas, San Diego, Miami, and more.

As for the ashes, at least they were housed in a transparent bag and not a hard or otherwise heavy structure. Other onstage incidents that have made headlines in recent weeks have taken a more dangerous turn, namely for the performers. GloRilla, for example, was recently filmed asking security to remove two concertgoers after they tossed objects (seemingly bottles) onto the stage. 

Bebe Rexha, meanwhile, was injured when a concertgoer hurled their phone at the singer and struck her in the face. The person responsible was later arrested and charged.
