Alecia Beth Moore, better known to the music-loving masses as Pink, is a musical tour de force that has been rocking out live shows for more than 20 years.

Pink’s success is due in part to her outspoken personality and lyricism, and her rambunctious pop-rock hits have made the “What About Us” singer a smash across the world, with a trophy cabinet consisting of 3 Grammy Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 7 MTV Video Music Awards, and 5 World Music Awards. However, Pink hasn’t just relied on her rebellious nature to cause a stir; indeed, Pink has a Mezzo-Soprano vocal range, spanning from A2 to E6, receiving well-deserved acclaim from critics during her career. But it’s not just critics who sing her praises, with inaugural American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson calling Pink’s voice "the best of our generation".

Pink’s tour schedule is always jam-packed—and it’s no wonder why, either; her 2009 Funhouse Tour was one of the highest-grossing concert tours in music history, raking in around $150 million in just a single year. Interestingly, more than half of her gross revenue came from her Australian shows. For comparison—and accounting for inflation—that puts the total box-office gross from her Funhouse Tour at about the same level as the action/thriller movie John Wick: Chapter 2.

Pink Live

Pink’s live shows are never phoned in; you always know you are going to be in for a raucous night of entertainment at one of her live shows. Her performances are frequently raunchy, but they’re not so raunchy that you’d need to cover the eyes of your 13-year-old daughter.

Titillation aside, Pink's live concerts are always spectacular, putting her sweet yet raspy voice to excellent use for every show. With extravagant visuals and Pink’s dedication to the craft, you’d be extremely hard pressed to attend a more sensational live performance in your lifetime.

Pink’s Background

Pink was born to a nurse, Judy, and Vietnam War veteran–turned–insurance salesman, Jim, on September 8, 1979. By the time she was 10 years old, Pink’s parents had divorced. With her teenage angst soaring above most, Pink turned to a variety of outlets to release her emotions—including hip-hop, skateboarding, and raving—but she ultimately decided that music was how she could express herself best. After joining a few bands, she eventually joined a band called Choice, where she was ultimately given the ultimatum to go solo or quit from her label. Not one to quit her passion, Pink ventured for a solo career, a wise move that would soon net herself and her supporting labels hundreds of millions of dollars over the years.

Pink acquired her alias around the age of 14. Although it wasn’t initially supposed to be a positive name, she embraced the nickname to great effect. While her first solo album, Can't Take Me Home, charted and performed reasonably well, her sophomore effort, Missundaztood, was an undeniable smash hit, eventually going 6x Platinum and selling more than 15 million units worldwide since its release in 2001.

With hits like “Dear Mr. President” and “F**kin' Perfect”, Pink shows that she is not afraid to make her opinion heard. Additionally, Pink has racked up 30 million Twitter followers on her Twitter handle @Pink, and her Facebook page has received more than 32 million likes, making her one of the most popular and relevant entertainers in the ever-growing world of social media. And, of course, Pink's live concerts still draw millions each year, showing that she still has what it takes to command huge crowds.
