This week saw Pink bid adieu to her ‘Beautiful Trauma World Tour,’ but it also saw her wave hello to a number of records that she’s just broken.
Full story below…
Announced in 2017, the global trek was erected in support of the Pop star’s like-titled album.
The project went on to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200, with career-best first-week sales of 408,000 – a sizeable proportion of which were the result of an album-tour ticket bundle.
Few, however, could have predicted the the performance of the trek. But, ever the Pop underdog, Pink delivered and then some.
From its first show on March 1st 2018 through to its last on August 19th 2019, the tour has grossed a colossal $397.3 million and sold 3,088,647 – per Billboard Box Score.
The feat means the ‘Beautiful Trauma World Tour’ is now the 10th highest grossing tour of all-time.
It’s also the 2nd highest grossing tour by a female and is only bested by Madonna’s 2008-09 ‘Sticky & Sweet Tour’ ($408 million).
Comprised of 157 shows in North America, Europe, and Australasia, the trek was unique in that not only did it encompass the push for the ‘Beautiful Trauma’ LP, latter legs also were also seized to plug follow-up album ‘Hurts 2B Human’ – which dropped this April.

That’s all folks! Thank you to everyone around the world for a beautiful, magical, challenging, fun, emotional, soulful tour. This was 2 1/2 years of blood, sweat, and many tears. A lot of happy ones, too. It has been an honor and a pleasure to play with you. My team… from the stage builders to the sound and lights and video and dancers and band and safety and stunts and everyone in between is hands down the best crew of any tour in the world. I am incredibly grateful to work with them. I love them with all of my heart, and I love all of you, too. Til next time. That’s a wrap! #beautifultraumaworldtour💞 #157 #gratitude
Some artists have “one song,” others have “that album,” yet Pink very much has established “a career.” An illustrious one too. Her journey has been (and continues to be) fascinating, primarily because – unlike some of her peers – it hasn’t been linear. It’s had its peaks, troughs, its blows and its booms. All of which render moments like this oh so resonating.
