Critical response[edit]

The Truth About Love Tour has received acclaim from music critics. Jason Bracelin from the Las Vegas Review-Journal calls Pink a "party girl with a heart of gold",[2] while Jim Harrington from Mercury News says Pink "is the new gold standard", adding that "you definitely don't walk away from a Pink show shrugging your shoulders and muttering 'meh.' It's far more likely that fans practically skip out of the building, feeling extremely satisfied with the experience and determined to tell others to 'go see Pink next time she's in town' [...] Honesty is, as they say, the best policy. And, after watching the Truth About Love Tour, I can honestly say that few, if any, performers deliver better pop spectacles than Pink." [3]

August Brown of Los Angeles Times opined that Pink is "perhaps the most gifted and imaginative physical performer in pop right now." He believes Pink's set serves as a reminder that "her best asset in performing – more than her aerialist talents or Joplin-esque power-rasp voice, is her self-awareness."[4] Steve Appleford from Rolling Stone, who was also at the L.A. show, described the vaudeville as a "grown-up, sophisticated show, and Pink was relaxed and chatty between songs." He went on to praise the singer, adding that "by the time Pink was soaring gracefully through the air on cables stretched across the arena to perform "So What," the singer had demonstrated an epic workout of vocals, stagecraft and stunt-work without missing a note. The night’s best special effect was Pink herself."[5] Craig Rosen from The Hollywood Reporter sums up the show, saying: "P!nk launches back to the top of pop with acrobatic stunts and killer vocals."[6] After the Houston show, Jane Howze from Culture Map Houston gave a positive review, believing that The Truth About Love show is poised to be 2013's concert of the year. She adds: "I have always said that Chris Martin, frontman of Coldplay is the hardest working entertainer around, but I’m reconsidering, and now I’m giving Pink the nod. A Pink concert is a little like a Cirque du Soleil performance. There is so much happening on stage—the songs, the dancing and of course the acrobatics—it is a feast for the senses."[7]

Giving a rave review, Sean Daly of Times Pop Music Critic, says Pink has proven "there are no longer any viable excuses for a performer to ever lip-synch again. If this 33-year-old mommy could soulfully belt out opening hit Raise Your Glass while boing-boing-ing rafter-high via bungee ropes, the Britneys and Beyonces of the Top 40 realm can't claim dance moves or chilly climes as decent reasons to switch off the mike."[8] Of her Palace of Auburn Hills show, Adam Graham of The Detroit News says: "Tuesday's concert was Pink's first area headlining show since 2002, and she's now entered a master class of pop spectacle providers. She displayed the physicality of Madonna in the way she led her troupe of dancers, and the production was on par with that of any big name pop act".[9]

Mario Tarradel of Dallas News, in his review of Pink's Dallas show, stated that "It’s easy to like Pink. Her rock-charged brand of pop-dance is radio ready, but it’s anchored in wit and grit. She’s got a pliable voice with lung power and melodic grace. She’s unbelievably taut with abs of steel and an adventurous streak. She’s got attitude, and no qualms about tossing a few expletives. But mostly Pink is an awesome performer. Pink is a natural."[10] Toronto Sun was praising Pink's performing abilities:"Pink was up for anything and everything as she bounced around on bungee cords, twirled around on hanging cloths, danced like a modern day Isadora Duncan and in the show’s jaw-dropping pentultimate song, So What, flew around the arena attached to four cables that turned her into a rock n’ roll Tinkerbell. She was equal parts gymnast, singer, dancer and even drummer."[11] Star Tribune gave the show overwhelming review, stating that Pink put on arguably the most daring concert in the history of arena rock. It was incredibly entertaining — way superior to Madonna’s and Lady Gaga’s. It set a standard that Rihanna (coming Sunday) and Beyoncé (due in July) will have to live up to.[12]

Jim Farber of NY Daily News gave the rave review to the show, saying that Pink reaches new heights in performance that puts her talent, composure on display ... yet it’s to Pink's considerable credit that no matter how many bright lights, fast-moving sets or fancy dancers surrounded her, she kept her talent and character front and center. In the end, that’s what gave the audience its ultimate high.[13] Entertainment Weekly was praising Pink's vocals and performing skills: "The “Truth Above Love” tour is a lot of things (including game show and circus) but it is one thing above all: a showcase for the power-pop anthem, which Pink pulled and pushed on with a showboating snarl. Do you have to be a Pink fan to enjoy the tour? It’s a ridiculous question: you’ll be blasted by almost two hours of music and end up a Pink fan, regardless. The wall-to-wall setlist had its interludes, in the form of spotlit one-offs (a guitar solo; an appearance by a man-in-the-moon straight out of a Méliès short; philosophy from our host of the game show-within-a-tour) and a late-in-the-night turn toward the acoustic. But the audience filled in around even the sound of a lone instrument. This was not the kind of crowd for stillness."[14]

James Reed of Boston Globe praised her vocals, stating that she is the rare performer who handles party anthems (“Raise Your Glass”) and heartbreaking ballads (“Just Give Me a Reason”) with equal élan.[15] The Irish Times gave the show extremely positive review, stating that as ever with Pink, it is all about the movements, her athleticism, a wow factor that makes Madonna’s taught and precise dance scenes on the MDNA Tour seem desperately flat. So here’s the key: the reason Pink’s live show is one of the best in the world is her live USP, which is aerial athleticism. You can have all the pyro you want at a Rihanna show, and all the ridonkulous costume changes at a Gaga gig, but Pink can FLY. The sense of danger as she descends silks, clambers around a spinning steel globe cage, the Broadway bonanza of her zip-lining into the gods, that’s what makes Pink gigs next level. And man do the crowd appreciate it. Screaming women with identikit haircuts whoop her every flex and step. They know that nobody else can do a show like this. It’s Pink’s territory and hers alone. It’s an aesthetic, however, that is also pretty over. While the topic of sex is occasionally apparent in Pink’s writing (most awkwardly in ‘**** Like You’), she is a completely different beast to the plastic sex cartoons that Katy Perry, Britney, Christina, Rihanna, and basically every other poptart animate. Some people take all the glory for themselves, but Pink puts on a show, and then acknowledges the hard work from many that goes into it, even if as the remarkable centrepoint to it, she could probably claim all the kudos in the world.[16]

Alice Vincent of The Daily Telegraph gave the show 4/5 stars, praising the show's set list: "Pink's set list was well curated from an extensive back catalogue, rewarding hardened fans with a short medley of the early R&B tracks which made her a star. That these were performed with the same genuine enthusiasm as the hits from her last album (her seventh but first to make number one in America), is a testament to Pink’s talent, and explains why she continues to sell records. Ten-year-old songs don’t sound dated because she has maintained the same energy and sass that she created them with."[17] Ian Gittins of The Guardian gave the show 4/5 stars, stating that Pink may not be the most original singer-songwriter touring the world's enormodomes, nor the most gifted, but she makes up for these shortcomings with a live show akin to a pop-punk take on Cirque du Soleil.[18]

Polly Coufos of The Australian praised the Pink's cover of Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time:"A little later this fearlessness was echoed with her first performance of Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time. She tackled the pop classic with the lyrics in her hand, the tentative reading providing great balance with the precision required for most of the numbers. That may be Pink's greatest asset, that she can create a spectacular show that more than matches her peers, but the glitz never hides the pure, unvarnished talent at her core."[19] Herald Sun reviewed one of Pink's 18 Melbourne shows:"P!nk's The Truth About Love tour takes concerts to the next level by aiming for the sky. The singing acrobat spends a good third of this new show in the air defying gravity because, unlike 99 per cent of her contemporaries, she can. And even when she's hanging upside down or spinning above your head she's singing completely live. Again, because she can."[20]

Commercial performance[edit]

Over 320,000 tickets for the Australian leg were sold in a few hours of release.[21] The tour will break records in Australia, being the most attended concert in Melbourne, which she had set herself in 2009's Funhouse Tour, selling 200,000 tickets only in Melbourne.[22] At the 2013 Billboard Touring Awards, Pink won the award for "Top Boxscore."[23]

The first North American leg of tour grossed $28.3 million from 26 shows,[24] with an average gross per city of $1,134,385.[25] The European leg grossed $30.7 million.[26] The nine-week leg of Australia is expected to generate $100 million.[27]

Grosses reported topped $31.6 million ($29.2 million) from two venues in Sydney and one in Brisbane, however that total represents less than half of what the Australian jaunt will ultimately gross when all the numbers are counted. A four-night stint in the city of Adelaide and a record-breaking 18 shows in Melbourne have yet to be reported to Billboard, so the overall ticket sales count from this tour should propel the pop star into the top ranks of the year’s highest-grossing touring artists.[citation needed]

Sydney fans had 12 opportunities to see Pink this year with eight shows staged at the Sydney Entertainment Centre (July 30–31, Aug. 2–3, 6–7, 9–10) and four at Allphones Arena (Sept. 1–2, 4–5) during the Aussie leg of the tour. Altogether at both venues, the number of tickets sold totaled 162,972. The Brisbane Entertainment Centre hosted the tour for eight nights (July 19–20, 22–23, Aug. 29–30, Sept. 7–8) with a total of 98,264 sold seats. Pink wrapped the Australian leg of her tour in Brisbane with a final performance on Sep 8 after a total of 46 concerts in the country.[28]

The tour is the third highest grossing tour of 2013. Pink is also the highest grossing female touring artist of 2013.[29]

Records[edit]

The Truth About Love Tour broke two records at the Rod Laver Arena, in Melbourne, Australia. Pink is the artist who has performed the most shows at the venue, with a significant 18 sold out shows on The Truth About Love Tour. The record superpassed her previous 17 show record at the venue during her 2009 Funhouse Tour. She is also the first artist to sell more than 250,000 tickets at the venue. On August 26, 2013, Pink was rewarded a plaque backstage, a second pink pole, a star at the venue's entrance and Door 18 was painted pink.

Her achievements reached Sydney as well, with the artist breaking Kylie Minogue’s feat of most concerts by a female performer at the Entertainment Centre. Pink has now played 26 shows at the venue. Her four sold-out shows at the Allphones Arena in Sydney also exceeded 67,000 in ticket sales, breaking the record set by fellow popstar Britney Spears in 2009 with her The Circus Tour. Pink now also holds the record for most performances by an artist at the Perth Arena, as well as the top four attended events at the venue.[30]

After playing to nearly 15,000 fans per night in Perth, Pink holds the record for the top four attended events at Perth Arena, and the record for the most performances by any artist and tour. Michael Coppel, President and CEO of Live Nation Australia, thanked Pink for spending three months on tour in this country. “Everyone at LNA has been thrilled to be involved in Pink’s record breaking tour, continuing a decade-long association with an artist who continues to set new standards and who has now sold in excess of 1.5 million tickets in Australia.”[31]

The pop star broke her own mark at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena with the 18th sold out performance, having set a house record in 2009 with 17 shows on her Funhouse tour. The combined gross of $29.2 million (US$) in Melbourne is the largest gross for any headliner at a single venue in 2013.[32]

Pink also sold out the KFC Yum!, in the process becoming the highest-grossing female artist to so far to play the arena.[33]

Development[edit]

To transport and set up the tour, there is a chartered 747 jumbo jet, 19 semi-trailers, and 80 crew members to set up her 400 tons of equipment.[34] She also opened her first "pop up" store which features things that are not normally available at her concerts. Merchandise includes autographed items, backstage passes, T-shirts, key rings, show tickets, etc.[35]
