After more than three months criss-crossing Australia, American pop superstar Pink wrapped her record-breaking tour with a final sell out concert at Sydney’s Acer Arena. It was the 58th and final performance of her phenomenal Funhouse national tour. In total, Pink performed before more than 660,000 concert-goers — 150,000 of those in Sydney alone.

JPS supplied equipment and additional crew for Pink’s Australian concerts — twelve in Sydney, seventeen in Melbourne, six in Adelaide, four in Newcastle, two in Wollongong and Canberra, eleven in Brisbane and four in Perth.
