P!nk makes her 2018 debut on the weekly Hot Tours recap (see list, below) with the first reported concert from the new tour in support of Beautiful Trauma, her most recent album released last October.
The pop star kicked off the tour at the beginning of March with 48 shows on tap at 40 arenas in the U.S. and Canada through June 1. The second date on the tour — a March 3 performance at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas — lands on this tally earning the singer the No. 5 ranking with $1.6 million in sales. The attendance total reached 11,894, based on a report of box office counts from the arena.
Produced by Live Nation, the tour will also travel to Australia and New Zealand following the opening jaunt in North America. P!nk will play multiple performances in nine cities during the first leg, but her Oceania run — from July 3 through Sept. 8 — will feature multiple shows in all but one of the seven markets.
P!nk last toured in 2013 and 2014 behind the September 2012 release of her album The Truth About Love. During a one-year span she headlined 142 concerts on three continents, grossing $183 million from just under two million sold tickets. Her highest gross ever was on that trek: a $29.2 million take from a whopping 18 sold out shows at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena.
That 18-show engagement was not only P!nk’s top earner of all time, but it is also the highest concert gross on record at the venue, according to the Boxscore archives. It also ranks as the ninth highest grosser of all time for any solo headliner since Billboard began tracking box office counts in 1990. She is booked for a string of shows at the same Melbourne arena later this year on the Beautiful Trauma tour’s Oceania leg.
