P!nk Breaks Two Records in Australia For Her Truth About Love World Tour

 Congrats  all around to our girl P!nk who broke two records in Melbourne, Australia. She  attracted 18 sold out shows across July and August 2013 as part of her Truth About Love World Tour surpassing the previous arena  record of 17 shows in 2009, also  set by P!nk during her Funhouse Tour.

The Truth About Love World Tour has sold close to 250,000 tickets in Melbourne alone (no other artist has played to people in Melbourne on one tour).

The closest was AC/DC’s three shows at Etihad Stadium in 2011 which sold around 180,000 tickets, while Madonna’s three MCG shows were seen by around 145,000 people in 1993.

Between all her tours at Rod Laver Arena Pink has sold over 500,000 tickets – another venue record!
