carinval tour banner

The Funhouse Summer Carnival was the fifth concert tour by American recording artist Pink, launched in support of her fifth studio album Funhouse (2008). The Funhouse Summer Carnival and the Funhouse Tour (2009) sold a combined total 3 million tickets, and brought the tour to a final gross of $180 million. With the tour, Pink became the only female artist to sell out stadium shows in 2010 and the first solo female act to open the Wireless Festival in London, UK. Tor Nielson of Live Nation Sweden gave a statement calling Pink “Sweden’s biggest stadium act” of 2010.

The tour was announced by tour promoter, Eventim, in October 2009, followed by an announcement on Pink’s official website in November. After selling over two million tickets on her successful Funhouse Tour, it was announced the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter will embark on her first ever stadium tour, in Europe. During an interview with online radio station, IN:DEMAND, Pink stated there will be a new setlist and less acrobatics, confirming that the tour isn’t just a continuation of her previous tour. The tour was set to begin at the Expo-Gelände in Hanover, Germany, however, the show was canceled for logistical reasons. In December, it was also confirmed that Pink will headline music festivals throughout Europe during the tour. Pink shot a new tour video for the tour in late April 2010. The video was shown while she was performing various songs. Butch Walker also duetted with Pink at most shows, including most festivals.
