Ticketmaster has named Pink its global ‘ticket of the year’ 2019, after once again polling fans globally from its database of more than 200 million people to discover the most popular live events of the year.

Pink – whose Beautiful Trauma world tour was voted the most anticipated event of 2019 in last year’s poll, which was ultimately won by BTS – was also chosen as the UK ticket of the year.

She comments: “What an honour! I had such an incredible team and touring family as part of the Beautiful Trauma world tour. We worked really hard to create the best show we could for all the fans and I’m so proud of all of us.”
