GRAMMY-winning artist Pink has certainly made the most of 2013, with the majority of the year spent touring in support of her latest release, “The Truth About Love.” The entire tour, which started in February, consists of four legs—Europe, Australia, and two North American stints to bookend the overseas dates.
The most notable portion of the venture thus far has been the third leg in Australia, which spans from June 25-Sept. 8. During her time down under, Pink has broken two records at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, the first of which was performing the most shows at the venue with 18 sold-out performances to surpass her own 17-show record from her 2009 Funhouse Tour. Pink also was the first artist to sell more than 250,000 tickets for one tour at the Rod Laver Arena, and both accomplishments were rewarded with a plaque backstage, a star outside the venue’s entrance, and a door and pole were painted pink in her honor.
With her Australia stay soon to end, Pink will next take the Truth About Love Tour back to where she started it—in North America. The fourth and final leg, which was added in response to the incredible success of the initial North American run, will begin on Oct. 10 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., and will continue on for more than 30 dates throughout the U.S. and Canada before coming to a close on Dec. 14 at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga.
In addition to her tour accomplishments, Pink also recently took home an MTV Video Music Award for Best Collaboration for “Just Give Me A Reason” with Nate Ruess of fun. The single was RIAA Certified Platinum in the U.S., and was the singer’s sixth VMA Award overall.
Outside of the tour, fans will soon get a new look at Pink, or rather, Alecia Moore as she’s billed, when she appears alongside Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo in the upcoming movie, “Thanks for Sharing,” which will debut in theaters on Sept. 20.
