Pink named TM’s global Ticket of the Year 2019

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.”

Slipknot, meanwhile, are the most anticipated tour in the UK next year, with their 2020 trek kicking off at 3Arena in Dublin on 14 January.

Pink shifts 1.2m tickets for European Beautiful Trauma dates

Pink opened the UK/European leg of her smash Beautiful Trauma world tour in the Netherlands on Tuesday, playing to a sell-out crowd of 50,000 at Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

The 27 European stadium dates follow a successful second North American leg of the tour, which has been on the road since March 2018. In April, promoter Live Nation revealed the tour has sold 2.9 million tickets globally since then; the current European leg has moved more than 1.2m.

Pink plays RDS Arena in Dublin tonight.

The Beautiful Trauma world tour was the highest grossing in the US in March, which came on the back of broken records in Australia and New Zealand, where Pink played 42 sold-out shows.

When it ends at the US grand prix, at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, on 2 November, the tour will have played 157 shows in 18 countries.

Beautiful Trauma, the fourth highest-grossing tour worldwide in 2018, was last year named the most anticipated UK tour of 2019.

Pink’s Beautiful Trauma tour sells 3m tickets

Pink has sold a total of 2.9 million tickets since beginning her Beautiful Trauma world tour in early 2018, promoter Live Nation has revealed.

The tour kicked off at Talking Stick Arena (18,422-cap.) in Phoenix, Arizona, on 1 March 2018, and is scheduled to close at Rock in Rio 2019 this October, for a total of 156 shows.

Beautiful Trauma, which was the fourth highest-grossing tour of 2018, includes 87 shows in North America (over 1.2m tickets sold), 35 shows in Australia (nearly 500,000 tickets sold), 27 shows in the UK and Europe (1.1m tickets sold, 400,000 in Germany alone) and seven shows in New Zealand (130,000 tickets sold).

Last year, it was also named the most anticipated UK tour of 2019.

The Beautiful Trauma world tour wraps up its second North American leg with two shows at Madison Square Garden on 21 and 22 May, before heading to Europe for a summer of stadium, arena and open-air shows, culminating at the Hague’s Malieveld on 11 August. A one-off show at Barra Olympic Park for Rock in Rio follows on 5 October.

Pink is represented by Marshall Arts worldwide.
