Breaking Records

The Truth About Love Tour broke two records at the Rod Laver Arena, in Melbourne, Australia. Pink is the artist who has performed the most shows at the venue, with a significant 18 sold out shows on The Truth About Love Tour. The record superpassed her previous 17 show record at the venue during her 2009 Funhouse Tour. She is also the first artist to sell more than 250,000 tickets at the venue. In August 2013, Pink was rewarded a plaque backstage, a second pink pole, a star at the venue’s entrance and Door 18 was painted pink.

Her achievements reached Sydney as well, with the artist breaking Kylie Minogue’s feat of most concerts by a female performer at the Entertainment Centre. Pink has now played 26 shows at the venue. Her four sold-out shows at the Allphones Arena in Sydney also exceeded 67,000 in ticket sales, breaking the record set by fellow popstar Britney Spears in 2009 with her The Circus Tour. Pink now also holds the record for most performances by an artist at the Perth Arena, as well as the top four attended events at the venue.

After playing to nearly 15,000 fans per night in Perth, Pink holds the record for the top four attended events at Perth Arena, and the record for the most performances by any artist and tour. Michael Coppel, President and CEO of Live Nation Australia, thanked Pink for spending three months on tour in this country. “Everyone at LNA has been thrilled to be involved in Pink’s record breaking tour, continuing a decade-long association with an artist who continues to set new standards and who has now sold in excess of 1.5 million tickets in Australia.”

The pop star broke her own mark at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena with the 18th sold out performance, having set a house record in 2009 with 17 shows on her Funhouse tour. The combined gross of $29.2 million (US$) in Melbourne is the largest gross for any headliner at a single venue in 2013.

Pink also sold out the KFC Yum!, in the process becoming the highest-grossing female artist to so far to play the arena.
