P!NK is nearing a major milestone as a concert performer as all indications suggest that she could surpass $1 billion in career grosses by the time her “Summer Carnival” stadium tour wraps next March. Currently, her overall box-office results from the past 21 years show a gross of $889.9 million from 9.06 million sold tickets at 607 headlining concerts.

With her stadium trek averaging $6.3 million per night, based on totals reported from this summer’s North American leg, she could potentially add about $188 million or more to that overall figure based on ticket sales from 10 U.S. stadiums not yet reported, along with her 20-show Oceania leg next year, also booked in stadiums.

And that doesn’t include the 22 arena dates planned for this fall in North America to support her latest album, Trustfall. Even the most conservative estimates place the gross potential from all her outstanding dates at about $210 million — which would boost her career gross to $1.1 billion.

Likewise, her career attendance total is also close to a milestone as reported ticket sales are at 9.06 million, about 936,000 short of the 10 million mark. With this year’s North American tour averaging 42,551 sold tickets per show, the estimated sales at 30 more stadium performances and this fall’s arena concerts could add 1.5 million more tickets to her total.

This summer in North America, P!NK grossed $89.6 million and sold 521,073 tickets from 13 performances July 24 through Aug. 21. Prior to that, seven of her concerts were reported from the opening European leg of the tour in June and July, producing a gross of $36.3 million from 329,940 tickets.

With all the 2023 reported concerts combined, the average ticket price from the tour totals $147.93, a new high for P!NK who first topped the $100 threshold in ticket price averages with her “Beautiful Trauma” world tour (2018-2019) that was set mainly in arenas along with stadiums in Europe. With a worldwide 155-show gross totaling $382 million, she averaged $2.5 million in grosses and 19,937 sold tickets per show, for an average price of $123.66 per ticket.

Although P!NK’s box-office highlights are global in scope, Australia has been a sweet spot in her career as a live performer. At the box office, her two most successful concert engagements were both held in Melbourne at Rod Laver Arena. (see chart pg. 34)

Her highest gross and attendance for a single run of shows was recorded at the Melbourne arena during “The Truth About Love” tour in 2013. Between July 7 and Aug. 26 of that year, she grossed $29.5 million from 235,187 sold tickets. The 18-show run also set a record at the venue for the most shows by an artist during a single tour.

Then she returned to Melbourne on her next tour, the “Beautiful Trauma” trek, and played 11 concerts at the same arena. Her gross in 2018 reached $20.2 million from 157,811 sold seats. It ranks second in both gross and attendance among her most successful engagements ever.

Her best gross from a North American event is the $13.6 million haul this summer at Boston’s Fenway Park on July 31 and Aug. 1. The two-show ticket count of 78,081 at the ballpark also ranks as her best attendance ever at a North American venue.

In Europe, her top gross is $16.6 million from 2019’s two-show run at London’s Wembley Stadium with sold tickets numbering 145,230 — also her best in Europe at one event.
