Los Angeles: Pink has nearly sold out an acoustic set in Los Angeles later this month that will benefit cancer research. The singer is working with Providence Saint John’s Health Center and John Wayne Cancer Institute on an initiative called The Power of Pink. And she’ll be performing at the House of Blues in Los Angeles October 23. “The Power of Pink fundraiser was created to recognize and celebrate the strength of women who battle and beat breast cancer daily,” reads an online statement from event organizers. General admission tickets start at $500, with packages costing as much as $15,000 for ten VIP seats. Demand is high, with VIP packages already having sold out by press time. Net proceeds from The Power of Pink event will benefit the Cancer Prevention Program at the Margie Petersen Breast Center at Providence Saint John’s Health Center, “where dedicated specialists offer a compassionate and comprehensive approach to breast care,” according to a spokesperson.–BTG

Pink’s new album, You+Me, is meanwhile scheduled for release mid-October.
