P!NK sets new ticket sales record at Qudos Bank Arena

P!NK sets new ticket sales record at Qudos Bank Arena
September 21, 2018

With her schedule of nine shows, the longest run of shows ever for a solo artist at the venue, P!NK has smashed the ticket sales record at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena, with her Beautiful Trauma World Tour that wrapped up on Wednesday.

P!NK, along with promoter, Live Nation and artist manager, Roger Davies now hold the record for the highest ticket sales of any artist, group or otherwise, to play Qudos Bank Arena, with a total of 143,367 tickets sold across nine performances - surpassing the previous record holder by more than 50%.

To celebrate the milestone, Qudos Bank Arena’s General Manager Steve Hevern and AEG Group Director of Arenas Tim Worton presented P!NK with two Indian Chieftain Motorcycle fuel tanks that were custom painted, one themed in the Beautiful Trauma World Tour artwork and the other themed with Australia's most famous bushranger, Ned Kelly - to suit the Indian motorcycles that both P!NK and her husband Carey Hart ride.

Two large murals, were also commissioned by Street Artist Mr. G to commemorate the occasion - one located back of house (for bragging rights) and the other in the front of house area on Level 3 for everyone to enjoy.

Fans travelled far and wide to experience the concerts, briefly interrupted by the star’s illness, before she resumed her high energy performances at rescheduled dates.

Qudos Bank Arena’s General Manager Steve Hevern said “it is an amazing number of tickets sold by an amazing artist, and it’s a record that I believe will stand for a very long time. P!NK’s performance on the 4th August during this tour in particular was one of the gutsiest I have seen, as she was clearly still not 100% after being unwell, but managed to give her all and perform magnificently.

“We are forever grateful to P!NK for returning to perform the rescheduled shows after having overcome her illnesses and so very proud to have her hold our attendance record and have her name indelibly etched in our history”.

P!NK's final performance at Qudos Bank Arena marked the end of her Australia and New Zealand tour.
