Hot on the heels of receiving a Grammy for her work on the No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single “Lady Marmalade,” R&B/pop vocalist Pink will hit the road in the North America for her first headlining tour. The spring jaunt, which will visit mostly theaters, is scheduled to kick off May 2 in Phoenix and close June 28 in Los Angeles. Opening acts have not yet been announced.
Tickets for the tour’s May 9 stop in Denver go on sale Saturday (March 16) via Ticketmaster. On sale dates for all other shows have not yet been confirmed.
Along with Mya, Lil’ Kim, and Christina Aguilera, Pink walked away from last month’s 44th annual Grammys with an award for best pop collaboration with vocals. She also participated in a show-stopping performance of the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack single, a remake the 1975 LaBelle chart topper, that featured producer Missy Elliott and Patti LaBelle.
Released last November, Pink’s sophomore Arista set “M!ssundaztood” peaked at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and is currently No. 11 in its 15th week on the chart. The album has spawned two singles — “Get the Party Started,” which peaked at No. 4 and is No. 25 this week on The Billboard Hot 100; and “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” which is No. 43 in its second week on the tally.
