“To sell out 11 concerts is outstanding and P!NK should be congratulated. The ‘P!NK Ladies’ symbolizes that success and pays tribute to the artist for what she has achieved in Brisbane.
“P!NK is now etched into our rock and roll history and we won’t ever forget this extraordinary feat. P!NK is our number one and she is Australia’s brightest star,” she said. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
