P!NK’s ‘Summer Carnival’ Tour of Australia and New Zealand has broken ticket sales records, with one show still to go.

Almost one million tickets were sold which, according to Billboard, is the most for any female headliner touring down under.

Billboard adds that the total puts P!NK second in the table of ticket sales for tours in Australia and New Zealand, behind Ed Sheeran’s ‘Divide’ in 2018, which sold over one million tickets. Just behind P!NK are rock band Dire Straits, who sold 950,000 for their ‘Brothers in Arms’ jaunt in 1986.

Earlier this month, P!NK broke records for her performances at Auckland’s Eden Park. The artist welcomed over 100,000 fans across the two nights, becoming the first female headliner to perform at the stadium while also smashing the attendance record.

Promoter Live Nation said that more than 3.1 million tickets have been sold in Australia and New Zealand across P!NK’s six tours, the largest career ticket sales accumulated by an international performer in the region.

The total includes over 658,000 tickets sold for P!NK’s ‘Funhouse’ tour across 58 arena shows in 2009, and the singer’s 2013 ‘The Truth About Love’ stint, which played 46 arena shows and sold over 600,000 tickets.

According to Billboard Boxscore, P!NK is the highest-grossing act of the 2010s in the region with roughly $135m (£107m/€125m).

Following P!NK’s final performance at Queensland Country Bank Stadium tomorrow (Saturday) night, the singer will embark on the European leg of her ‘Summer Carnival’ tour  in June.
