P!NK sets new ticket sales record at Qudos Bank Arena

Details

With her schedule of 9 shows, the longest run of shows ever for a solo artist at the Arena, P!NK has smashed the ticket sales record at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena, with her Beautiful Trauma World Tour that wrapped up on Wednesday 19 September 2018. 

Fans travelled far and wide to experience P!NK's Beautiful Trauma World Tour, who is notorious for raising a glass to getting the party started, and she certainly didn’t disappoint. With her distinctive vocals, high energy, impressive production and mind boggling acrobatics on show once again, fans were treated to something special every night. P!NK, along with promoter, Live Nation and artist manager, Roger Davies now hold the record for the highest ticket sales of any artist, group or otherwise, to play Qudos Bank Arena, engrossing a total of 143,367 tickets sold across 9 performances and surpassing the previous record holder by more than 50%. 

To celebrate the milestone, Qudos Bank Arena’s General Manager Steve Hevern and AEG Group Director of Arenas Tim Worton presented P!NK with two Indian Chieftain Motorcycle fuel tanks that were custom painted, one themed in the Beautiful Trauma World Tour artwork and the other themed with Australia's most famous bushranger, Ned Kelly – to suit the Indian Motorcycles that both P!NK and her husband Carey Hart ride. 

Two large murals, were also commissioned by infamous Street Artist Mr. G to commemorate the occasion - one located back of house (for bragging rights) and the other in the front of house area on Level 3 for everyone to enjoy. 

 

Qudos Bank Arena’s General Manager Steve Hevern said “It is an amazing number of tickets sold by an amazing artist, and it’s a record that I believe will stand for a very long time. P!NK’s performance on the 4th August during this tour in particular was one of the gutsiest I have seen, as she was clearly still not 100% after being unwell, but managed to give her all and perform magnificently. We are forever grateful to P!NK for returning to perform the rescheduled shows after having overcome her illnesses and so very proud to have her hold our attendance record and have her name indelibly etched in our history”. 

P!NK's final performance at Qudos Bank Arena marked the end of her Australia and New Zealand tour. P!NK now returns home for some well-deserved rest and recuperation, before continuing her Beautiful Trauma World Tour through the United States from March 2019.
