TICK­LED PINK

WHO - - The List -

The Rubens are on tour with Pink for her whop­ping 46-show Aus­tralian tour in sup­port of her Beau­ti­ful Trauma al­bum, and while the “Raise Your Glass” singer may not have made the phone call her­self to book the band, she did have a choice in who sup­ported her. “Of­ten that isn’t the case, you know,” says Sam Mar­gin. “They don’t even care who sup­ports them, but ap­par­ently she saw the ‘Mil­lion Man’ mu­sic video ... and she does care who sup­ports her and she chose us, which is nice.”

On the road from July 3 to Aug. 29 and in mas­sive venues such as Rod Laver Arena in Mel­bourne, the Qu­dos Bank Arena in Syd­ney and the Bris­bane En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre, The Rubens ad­mit it will be a chal­lenge to win over fans who may not be fa­mil­iar with their mu­sic. “That will take a few shows to get right,” says Sam. “It’s def­i­nitely go­ing to be, like, learn­ing to work that crowd.”

The Rubens will play a 40-minute set open­ing for Pink.
