Pop star Pink to play Swansea

Pop music fans had best get the party started because American star Pink has been lined up to perform in Swansea.

The singer will take to the stage at the city's Liberty Stadium on Wednesday June 23 next summer as part of her worldwide Funhouse Carnival Tour.

Pink has already sold over 30 million albums across the globe and some of her best known hits include Rock Star, Get the Party Started and Trouble.

The 30-year-old also collaborated with the likes of Christina Aguilera on the 2001 version of Lady Marmalade.

Swansea is one of only six cities across the UK to host Pink and her Funhouse Carnival Tour.

The Who and Elton John are among the other major acts to have played The Liberty Stadium since it was opened in 2005.

Cllr Graham Thomas, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Recreation and Tourism, said: "The introduction of the Liberty Stadium to Swansea has been overwhelmingly positive for Swansea both in terms of sports and its wider offer.

"We've already seen other world class musicians play at the stadium and now Pink is following in their footsteps.

"It's a real feather in Swansea's cap that we're one of only six cities to have been selected to host her forthcoming tour. This not only shows confidence in Swansea as a venue that can host major events but it also raises the city's profile both in the UK and overseas."

Tickets for the Pink gig at the Liberty Stadium are being made available from Monday November 9.

They'll be on sale at both the Liberty Stadium's ticket office between 10am and 6pm and at Derrick's Records on Oxford Street.

Twenty four-hour credit card lines are being made available on 0844 847 2450, 0871 230 1080, 0844 338 8000 and 0844 481 1222.
