Pink's Tour Ranked Among Highest-Grossing Ever
Pink left Toronto this week on a high note.
The pop star’s Beautiful Trauma World Tour, which wrapped up Monday night at the Scotiabank Arena, was ranked the 10th highest-grossing tour in the history of Billboard Boxscore – and the second-highest by a female artist.
The 17-month, 156-show trek grossed $397.3 million (all figures U.S.) from a little less than 3.1 million tickets sold.
Ed Sheehan holds the No. 1 spot thanks to the $736.7 million gross of his Divide tour, followed by rock acts like U2, Guns N’ Roses, The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Roger Waters and AC/DC. Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour a decade ago grossed a reported $407.7 million.
The Beautiful Trauma World Tour kicked off March 1, 2018 and included nine shows in three Canadian cities – Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
According to Billboard Boxscore, Pink is one of the 20 highest-grossing acts ever with a total gross of $716 million from at least 519 concerts.
The singer will finish up the year with a show at Rock in Rio on Oct. 5 and a performance at the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas on Nov. 2.
