This month Ticketmaster polled live entertainment fans worldwide from its 200 million database to discover the most popular live events of 2019. The results are now in and we can announce that P!nk has been voted by fans in the UK as the #1 show of 2019.
The pop icon not only takes the UK ‘Ticket of the Year’ crown, but also takes number one place globally. The Grammy Award winner, who released her eighth studio album “Hurts 2B Human” in April was voted by fans last year as the ‘Most Anticipated Event’ of 2019 and it is clear she has delivered. After thrilling audiences across America, Australia and New Zealand with her Beautiful Trauma World Tour, P!nk brought the fun to fans across Europe, playing to packed out stadiums and arenas tallying up a record 157 shows.
“What an honor! I had such an incredible team and touring family as part of the Beautiful Trauma World Tour. We worked really hard to create the best show we could for all the fans and I’m so proud of all of us.”– P!nk
