Pink’s crew, manager escape plane crash unscathed
A private plane carrying Pink’s crew and manager Roger Davies made a crash landing in Aarhus airport in Denmark, local police have confirmed.
Ten people were onboard the plane, which caught fire after landing. No casualties were reported.
“Pink was not personally on board,” a representative of Live Nation Norway told reporters. “Her manager and several other members [on] the tour were, but it all turned out ok.”
Davies took over management of Pink following the release of her second album, Missundaztood, in 2001. The Australian has worked with artists including Tina Turner, Cher, Janet Jackson and Olivia Newton-John.

The plane had taken off from Oslo, Norway, on its way to the next stop on the European leg of Pink’s Beautiful Trauma tour at the 10,400-capacity Casa Arena in the Danish city of Horsens. The show went ahead last night (Wednesday 7 August) as planned.
After the date in Horsens, the singer is heading to the Veltins Arena (62,271-cap.) in Gelsenkirchen, Germany and open-air venue Malieveld in the Hague, Holland (17,500), before heading back to North America for three more dates.
The 156-date tour, which kicked off in Phoenix, Arizona, on 1 March 2018, was the fourth highest-grossing tour of last year.
