P!nk Breaks Touring Records in Australia

By: Alexandria Sardam - September 27, 2013

She’s known for her hot pink hair and even hotter attitude. But as of lately, the bad gal of the pop world, P!nk, is dominating some other, more important categories. The diva pop star dominated the weekly tally of Hot Tours with a sky-high record breaking 18-show engagement. This all happened during the Australian part of the diva’s Truth About Love tour.

Take a look at the opening of her stop in Melbourne, here.

The 34-year-old pop sensation broke her very own mark performing at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne-the second most populated city in Australia. Her performance was marked as the 18th sold out performance. This set a house record in 2009 with a whopping 17 shows sold out on P!nk’s Funhouse tour.

The combined gross of $29.2 million (in US$) in Melbourne is the greatest gross for any headliner at a single venue this year.

Alecia Beth Moore, commonly known as P!nk has been around the music scene since becoming a member of the girl group, Choice. After wanting to break out on her own, the singer-songwriter began her solo career in 2000 with the hit single, “There You Go.” Her debut album, “Can’t Take Me Home” was just the start of the young talent’s success. The album soon was certified double-platinum in the United States.

The Pennsylvania native has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide along with winning many accolades including three Grammy Awards.
