Pink makes a high-flying return to the Pollstar Global Concert Pulse at the No. 2 spot as Pollstar begins to receive reports for the spring leg of her Beautiful Trauma World Tour, knocking “Springsteen On Broadway” to No. 3.
The leg began March 1 at Phoenix’s Talking Stick Resort Casino, which nearly reached capacity with 14,181 tickets sold and $1.8 million grossed with ticket prices ranging between $43 and $235.
The tour, which so far has seen Pink perform while suspended in the air in 15 North American cities, has sold an average of 17,556 tickets for a typical gross of $2,352,887 per night. Fans are willing to drop some cash to see her, as the average ticket price is $134.
The outing is named after Pink’s latest studio release, Beautiful Trauma, which dropped last October.

G-Eazy takes a leap during his show at Accesso ShoWare Center in Kent, Wash., March 4.
The rapper recently found himself in hot water when he was convicted of assault and drug possession in Sweden while on his European tour. The conviction isn’t getting in the way of his touring, however, as he still has European dates through the end of June. He’s also avoiding jail time, though he must pay a $9,000 fine and about $850 in restitution.
Jason Mraz comes in 11 spots behind at No. 39. His ongoing tour has brought in an average of $142,037 and 1,933 tickets sold per night.

David Byrne is another new addition to the chart coming in at No. 49 as Pollstar begins to receive reports for his “American Utopia” tour in support of his recently released album of the same name. The former Talking Heads front man still knows how to sell tickets, as each night averages $103,867 grossed and 1,499 tickets sold.
