Pink obliterates Spark Arena's attendance record

Pink has smashed the attendance record at Auckland's Spark Arena, pulling in almost one-and-a-half times more people than the previous record-holder.

The 'So What' hitmaker attracted a total of 73,087 fans to her six Spark Arena shows, snatching the record off Bruno Mars, who sold a total of 48,783 tickets to his four concerts earlier in 2018.

The venue - formerly Vector Arena - is having a busy year, hosting tours from the likes of Roger Waters, Celine Dion, Queen, Bob Dylan, Katy Perry, Kendrick Lamar, Cher, Robbie Williams, Niall Horan, Imagine Dragons, Sam Smith and Shania Twain.

As impressive as the Pink's attendance record is, however, it pales in comparison to the crowds entertained by Ed Sheeran and Adele in Aotearoa recently.

The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker performed before a little more than 130,000 people at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium over three nights in March, 2017, before the 'Shape of You' singer played to 134,000 across three nights at the same venue this year.

Meanwhile, Pink's partying in Auckland at the conclusion of her tour remains a hotly debated topic.

After she criticised speak-easy style bar Deadshot for not accepting her group's demands and praised restaurant/bar Revelry on social media, a third bar is now using her image for marketing.

The Jefferson sent an email out on Friday with a photo of the singer at the bar and a message saying: "If it's good enough for Pink... you can book your birthday party at the Jefferson too!"
