International pop icon P!nk brings Beautiful Trauma Tour to NZ next year

International pop icon P!nk, who last performed two sold-out arena shows in Auckland 10 years ago during her 'I'm Not Dead Tour', will launch her 'Beautiful Trauma' tour in Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium followed by five shows at Auckland's Spark Arena in September 2018.

Tickets for the new Auckland show will go on sale at 2pm Wednesday, May 9.

Before heading to our shores, P!nk is also set to perform her massive Aussie tour which will start off in Perth then heading to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Staying true to being up-close and personal to her fans, P!nk has opted for a return to the relatively intimate surrounds of multiple indoor arena shows. Following her recent 40-date trek across North America in support of her seventh album 'Beautiful Trauma' (out October 13), P!nk will head to Australia for multiple arena shows before returning to New Zealand.

P!nk's 2013 The Truth About Love Tour still stands as the biggest selling tour by a solo female artist in Australia (out selling Taylor Swift and Adele), captivating audiences during 46 spectacular sold-out shows, performing to more than 600,000 fans and smashing venue attendance records right across the country, redefining the benchmark for arena spectaculars.

P!nk recently released her highly anticipated album 'Beautiful Trauma' last October 13 and the album features the no. 1 iTunes smash single 'What About Us' which also hit the top spot on the airplay charts here and in the UK.

Since her debut in 2000, P!nk has released six studio albums, one greatest hits album, sold more than 42 million albums, 75 million singles, 2.4 million DVDs worldwide and has had 15 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (four at no. 1). In New Zealand, P!nk has had four RIANZ no. 1 albums with sales in excess of 350,000 units, plus 50,000 DVD sales.

In addition, she is the recipient of three Grammy Awards, one Daytime Emmy Award, three Billboard Music Awards, six MTV Video Music Awards, two MTV Europe Awards, two People's Choice Awards and was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in 2013. She has sold out arenas all over the world, made her acting debut in Lionsgate's Thanks for Sharing and released a side project with singer-songwriter Dallas Green entitled You+Me.

Last year, P!nk released 'Just Like Fire' from Walt Disney Studios' feature film Alice Through The Looking Glass. The track was no. 1 on the US Adult Contemporary Chart for six consecutive weeks and has more than 155 million views of the music video.

P!nk was featured on Kenny Chesney's 'Setting The World on Fire', marking her first no. 1 on the Country Airplay Chart and Hot Country Songs Chart (in the US). The track also received a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group performance earning P!NK her 18th Grammy nomination.

P!nk is a huge supporter of various charities, including: Make a Wish Foundation, Autism Speaks, Human Rights Campaign and No Kid Hungry. She was formerly a spokesperson for Covergirl and remains on the UNICEF team as an Ambassador.
