This is definitely not what Pink meant when she sang "Get the Party Started."

On the way to Munich from Berlin during the European leg of her circus-themed Funhouse Summer Carnival trek, the M!ssundaztood singer's tour bus caught fire early Monday.

Luckily no one was hurt in the mishap.

According to published reports quoting German officials, a faulty particle filter in the vehicle's exhaust system ignited around 5 a.m. The driver pulled the bus to the side of the road and put the flames out with a fire extinguisher before emergency responders arrived.

While Pink was not onboard at time of the incident, eight musicians from her backing band were.

But the show must go on—and did, with the entourage getting to their its destination on a substitute bus and Pink's concert in Berlin scheduled to go on as planned.

The jaunt continuesin the coming days with gigs in the U.K. and Ireland, including a plum spot in the Isle of Wight Festival and stadium shows in Belfast and Dublin.
