Quotes attributable to Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk:
“P!NK is one of the most popular artists in the world and we are absolutely thrilled that she has decided to make Townsville her curtain call for the tour.
“Queensland is the only state where P!NK is playing three separate cities, and this is the only regional stop, which is a huge win for local fans and provides an additional tourism benefit, particularly given the proximity to Asia.
“Major concerts like this bring visitors who spend millions of dollars in the tourism economy and support local jobs, so let’s PAINT THE TOWN PINK!
Quotes attributable to Live Nation Australia, President, Roger Field:
“P!NK’s Aussie shows sold out in minutes across the country, making the tour extension into North Queensland an exciting next step in meeting this unprecedented demand.
P!NK! has wowed audiences across the world at each stop of her high-flying, high-energy tour. This is a must-see event for Aussie P!NK fans as she brings this spectacular tour to a close with a bang.”
