P!nk returns to Australia, to pop up…
Pop star P!nk pop ups across Australia (again)
Updated 7th July… the Melbourne location has just been announced ! (see below…)
American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress# P!nk has just started a massive 42-date “Beautiful Trauma” concert tour around Australia / New Zealand*… and announced there’ll be exclusive pop up stores in of those 3 Aussie cities. Interestingly, the shops will open ahead of her gigs – but won’t remain throughout her concert dates.
Locations of the pop up stores – in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane – haven’t been revealed as yet… But eager fans can register for details via the P!nk official shop website (I suggest you register the 1st time you visit… the link disappeared the 2nd time I looked !)
In Melbourne the (initial) nine P!nk concerts will be between 16th to 28th July. But her pop up store will only be open the Friday to Sunday beforehand ! (13th – 15th July)
There’s a slight cross-over in Sydney – the (initial) six concerts are 3rd to 12th August and the shop will trade for the first few days (Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th August)
And in Brisbane the store will open Saturday 11th – Monday 13th August, ahead of her (seven) concert dates starting 14th August.
Why are the dates a little different to the actual concerts ? Well, the stores are all open over the weekends immediately before P!nk’s concerts, which makes good “retail” sense.
And why do I say the “initial” concerts in Melbourne and Sydney ? Well, she will return to both cities for additional gigs after Brisbane… but hasn’t said if the pop up stores will also re-open.
Typically, a concert pop up store like this will feature exclusive tour merchandise and a collection of memorabilia… sometimes with personal items on display (not for sale) and perhaps a visit by the stars themselves (do not touch…)
P!nk also hosted a pop up store in Melbourne during her 2013 concerts here… and that shop did re-open when she returned for more concert dates !

Where – Collarts, 209 Brunswick Street Fitzroy
