Sportsbet punts on P!NK shows

Sportsbet punts on P!NK shows

After succumbing to illness and being admitted to hospital at the start the Sydney leg of her Beautiful Trauma tour P!NK is expected to resume her shows tomorrow.

However, this hasn’t stopped online Australian bookmaker Sportsbet trying to make a quick buck by putting the following odds on other cancellations:

$1.33 Thursday, Aug 9 – Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney

$1.55 Saturday, August 11, Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney

$1.65 – Sunday, August 12, Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney

$2.50 any show from August 14 to 23, Brisbane Entertainment Centre

$3.50 either show August 24 or 25, Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney

$4.00 either show of August 28 or 29, Melbourne Rod Laver Arena

The site describes the bets as, “Pays on concert being officially canceled by tour organizers – Max winnings $150.”

Regardless of Sportsbet’s callous odds, Ticketek tweeted yesterday that all shows would go as scheduled.

Live Nation this morning still listed on its website, the Sydney shows at Qudos Bank Arena on Thursday 9, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12.

The promoter advised anxious fans, “We are working on the reschedule and will let you know at a later time.”

After that she’s scheduled for the Brisbane Entertainment Centre for August, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 21 and 23.

The schedule calls for her to be back in Sydney on Saturday, 25 and Sunday, 26 and at the Rod Laver Arena on Tuesday, 28 and Wednesday, 29.

Her Dunedin show and four dates in Auckland between September 1 and 8 were yesterday confirmed to proceed, according to Dunedin Venues marketing manager Kim Barnes.
