Pink smashes Bruno Mars’ concert attendance record in New Zealand A

ABC/Lou RoccoPink‘s recent run of shows in Auckland, New Zealand has broken box office records.

The six sold-out shows at Spark Arena, which took place from September 4-11, attracted 73,087 fans, setting the record for highest concert attendance at that venue.

Pink’s shows broke the record set by Bruno Mars in March of this year: He drew 48,783 fans over four shows. Before Bruno, Beyonce held the record.

In a statement, Michael Coppel, the chairman concert promoter Live Nation Australia, said, “Thank you for playing these six incredible shows – you have given New Zealanders, who traveled from all over the country, an unforgettable experience that has now officially gone down in history.”

Cher, Sam Smith and Shania Twain are among the artists who will play the venue for multiple nights later this year, but it’s doubtful any of them will come close to matching Pink’s record.
