P!NK’s ‘Beautiful Trauma’ world tour tipped to hit $275m
As the date nears for P!NK to kick off her Australian tour, figures from overseas suggest the Beautiful Trauma world tour could be her biggest.
Billboard reports that the first North American leg of the tour, which began in March and lasted three months, has grossed US$100 million in ticket sales
This is from pulling 712,000 American and Canadian fans to 38 arenas. 48 of the shows sold out.
Based on these figures, Billboard predicts that by the time the tour wraps up in May 2019, Beautiful Trauma could hit the $275 million.
This would make it P!NK’s highest ever grossing tour of all time.
Her 38-year-old’s last one, The Truth About Love tour in 2013 and 2014, pulled in over $183 million.
In Australia, Live Nation has already announced that the tickets sold on this tour will bring to a total of two million over Alecia Moore’s visits down under.
As late as the end of April, shows were still being added as demand refused to subside.
The Australian leg has sold 650,000 tickets, with 320,000 snapped up in a few hours after they went on sale.
In Melbourne she has sold 200,000 – breaking the record she set herself with 2009’s Funhouse tour.
The Australian leg of Beautiful Trauma takes in 35 dates, with the first of four shows at Perth Arena on July 3. It also includes 11 shows in Melbourne, nine in Sydney, seven in Brisbane and four in Adelaide.
Opening on the dates are The Rubens.
The album, out through Sony Music Australia, is now 4x platinum for Australian sales of 300,000.
The Australasian trek expands to 42 dates when you factor in the New Zealand shows.
The tour ends in Auckland on September 11 before resuming in the US and Canada in March next year, with shows in Florida, Dallas and Las Vegas, finishing with two nights at Madison Square Garden in New York in May.
The last Australian run The Truth About Love featured 46 sell-out shows including a record-breaking 18-night run at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena.
The American singer played six arenas in five cities that year and racked up $73 million from ticket sales of 600,000.
On her first tour, Try This in 2004, she played six arena concerts.
2007’s I’m Not Dead tour played to more than 308,000 fans over 35 nights.
Two years later, the phenomenal 58-arena-show Funhouse tour broke venue records everywhere it went, selling in excess of 658,000 tickets.
According to Live Nation, it still stands as the biggest selling tour by a solo female artist in Australia.
P!NK’s personal fortune is estimated at $110 million.
As of December 2017, the five biggest grossing world tours of all time were:
U2 – 360 Degree ($736 million)
The Rolling Stones – A Bigger Bang ($558 million)
Coldplay – A Head Full Of Dreams ($523 million)
Roger Waters – The Wall Live ($459 million)
AC/DC – Black Ice ($441 million)
