Pink taps The Hives to open tour, adds NYC to itinerary
Pop songstress Pink has added a New York City date to her 2013 "The Truth About Love" tour, which will feature opening support from The Hives and City and Colour.
The Grammy-winning performer kicks off the trek Feb. 13 in Phoenix, and since last check, a March 22 stop at New York City's Madison Square Garden has been inserted into the schedule. The 26-city outing currently concludes March 28 in Boston, MA.
Tickets for the entire tour are on sale now via Live Nation.
Swedish garage-rockers The Hives will handle opening duties for the majority of run, except for three mid-March shows, for which City and Colour will take over.
Pink, the Pennsylvania native and recently named Covergirl spokeswoman, released her sixth studio album, "The Truth About Love," in September via RCA Records. She worked alongside producer Greg Kurstin (Marina and the Diamonds, Sia) on the set, which also features her long-time collaborators Max Martin and Shellback, Billy Mann and Butch Walker.
The effort's lead single, "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)," surfaced in late June and peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Pink's 12th Top 10 hit.
