Box office stats from three arenas have been reported for Pink following the wrap of the Australian leg of her “Truth About Love” tour that drew sellout crowds in five cities in Australia from late-June through early-September.
Grosses reported during the past week topped $31.6 million ($29.2 million) from two venues in Sydney and one in Brisbane, however that total represents less than half of what the Australian jaunt will ultimately gross when all the numbers are counted. A four-night stint in the city of Adelaide and a record-breaking 18 shows in Melbourne have yet to be reported to Billboard, so the overall ticket sales count from this tour should propel the pop star into the top ranks of the year’s highest-grossing touring artists.
Sydney fans had 12 opportunities to see Pink this year with eight shows staged at the Sydney Entertainment Centre (July 30-31, Aug. 2-3, 6-7, 9-10) and four at Allphones Arena (Sept. 1-2, 4-5) during the Aussie leg of the tour. Altogether at both venues, the number of tickets sold totaled 162,972. The Brisbane Entertainment Centre hosted the tour for eight nights (July 19-20, 22-23, Aug. 29-30, Sept. 7-8) with a total of 98,264 sold seats. Pink wrapped the Australian leg of her tour in Brisbane with a final performance on Sept. 8 after a total of 46 concerts in the country.
Marc Anthony lands on the weekly tally of Hot Tours with sales reported from his Vivir Mi Vida tour that began its North American leg in Miami on Aug. 23. The Latin pop star takes the No. 3 ranking with $6.2 million in grosses from five U.S. arenas on the world tour that is booked in North and South America through early-December.
Touring in support of his newest album “3.0”, Anthony sold out two performances at Miami’s American Airlines Arena on Aug. 23 and 24 with more than 29,000 fans in attendance. With ticket sales added from an Aug. 25 sellout in Orlando, reported last week, the total tour revenue from the first six North American markets is more than $7 million. Produced by Chicago-based Cardenas Marketing Network, the tour is set to wrap in the Americas on Dec. 5 in Caracas before heading to Australia for the remainder of the year.
