Pink Tour Explodes

Pink’s “Funhouse” tour for May 2009 looks set to become the biggest Australian tour by a female artist – a record set by the pop singer herself in 2007 when she shifted 306,000 tickets over 36 shows.

The “Funhouse” trek, through Michael Coppel Presents, got off to a strong start, and is now up to 27 shows. It’s sold 250,000 tickets, 200,000 on its first day of sale on Oct. 31.

Coppel is negotiating to extend the tour by three weeks to cater to demand.
