Pink sets (another) new record in Melbourne

Pink this week broke her own record in Melbourne, playing her 18th (and final) show at the Rod Laver Arena. The previous record, for most shows at the venue by any artist during a single tour, was set in 2009 by Pink herself during her Funhouse Tour with 17 shows.

Michael Coppel, president and CEO of Live Nation Australia, said that since playing her first show on April 30, 2004 at the Rod Laver, she has played 42 shows there and shifted over 500,000 tickets. “Without doubt, Melbourne now provides the biggest audience for Pink in any city worldwide,” he said. The Australian leg of The Truth About Love Tour boasts 46 shows and more than 600,000 tickets sold nationally.

Live Nation also announced today that upcoming Sydney band The Preatures and seasoned Finley rock band Spiderbait will open the singer’s final shows.

The Preatures will open seven of the eight remaining shows, playing Brisbane on August 29, 30 and September 7 and all four final Sydney shows while Spiderbait will open Pink’s 46th and final Australian show of the tour at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Sunday September 8.
