In a 60 Minutes interview on Saturday, P!nk revealed that she has seriously considered applying for Australian citizenship.
It’s no secret that P!nk has a loyal fanbase in Australia, and she’s a huge fan of the country herself. In fact, in a recent interview, the three-time Grammy winning artist revealed that she has considered becoming an Australian citizen and has even though about moving her family Down Under ahead of her Australian tour.
“Last year, I was thinking about applying for citizenship” she told 60 Minutes. “I am not even joking. I was like, ‘If we’re going somewhere Carey, [Australia] is where we’re going”.
P!nk has demonstrated her love and support for Australia in the past. During the 2020 bushfires, she donated $500 000 to emergency fire services. The bushfires left her “totally devastated” and she called Australian firefighters her “personal heroes”. “We’re praying and pulling for you, and our hearts are with you” she tweeted in 2019, sharing donation links to various states’ fire services.
Now, she’s set to visit Australia for the first time since 2018 on her Summer Carnival Tour. Though she has toured Australia in the past, this will be her first stadium tour. Kicking off in February, it will feature performances in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
“I am so excited to finally get a chance to tour Australia and New Zealand in the summer!!” she said in a statement, “I can’t wait to bring the Summer Carnival Tour to my home away from home and smile and sing together until our cheeks hurt. Summer 2024 can’t come soon enough!”
Trustfall, P!nk’s ninth album, will be released on February 17th. General tickets go on sale the same day, at 9am in Adelaide, 10am in Brisbane and Melbourne, 12pm in Newcastle, and 1pm in Sydney and the Gold Coast.
