Popstar P!nk, who has been touring in support of her 2017 record Beautiful Trauma, has officially broken records as her Beautiful Trauma World Tour has become the highest-grossing tour for a woman in over a decade.
Beautiful Trauma, P!nk’s seventh studio album, dropped in October 2017 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. She embarked on a massive world trek to support the LP, which included dates across North America, Australia, and Europe, as well as an additional North American leg. Her tour just wrapped-up yesterday, August 19, at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena. According to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore, the entire Beautiful Trauma Tour grossed $397.3 million and sold 3,088,647 tickets during 2018 and 2019.
While the tour is now the biggest of P!nk’s career, it’s also broken a handful of records, placing her among the top 10 highest-grossing tours in Billboard Boxscore’s history. The tour is also the highest-grossing tour by a woman since Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour, which ran from 2008 to 2009 and brought in $408 million. She has surpassed Taylor Swift’s 2018 Reputation Stadium Tour, which finished with $345.7 million, as well as Madonna’s 2012 The MDNA Tour, clocking in at a little over $305 million.
P!nk played 156 shows during the trek, which included high-wired aerialistic elements – something the singer has implemented in her live performances for over a decade. The tour’s earnings are up 117 percent from her The Truth About Love Tour, which had already jumped 72 percent from her 2009 Funhouse Tour. She has officially become one of the 20 highest-grossing acts in Billboard Boxscore’s history, bringing in $716 million and over 7 million tickets from 519 shows since her debut 20 years ago.
This past April, P!nk dropped a new album, Hurts 2B Human, which includes a variety of collaborations like “Hurts 2B Human” with Khalid, “Can We Pretend” featuring Cash Cash, and “Love Me Anyway” with Chris Stapleton. She is best-known for upbeat, energy-driven tracks like “What About Us,” “Raise Your Glass,” and “So What.”
