Pink wanted to murder her soundman because her rehearsals were going so badly.

The 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss)' singer revealed she walked out of a run through for her upcoming 'The Truth About Love Tour' because the soundcheck was going wrong.

However, Pink managed to get a grip on her emotions and calm down by reading singer Carole King's memoir 'A Natural Woman'.

She told People magazine: ''I left rehearsals early the other day because soundcheck was such a mess. I've never murdered a sound man but it crossed my mind. So I opened this book, and saw 'soundcheck isn't going well'. I thought I'd see how she handled it.''

Pink - who has a 17-month-old daughter, Willow, with her husband Carey Hart - is set to kick off her mammoth world tour on February 13 next year in Phoenix.

The 33-year-old pop star will be on the road for eight months and will stop off in 17 countries in support of her sixth album 'The Truth About Love'.

Although she is remaining tight-lipped on what she has in store for her fans, Pink is putting together a spectacular stage show which will be even more adventurous than 2010s 'Funhouse Summer Carnival Tour'.

She recently said: ''I've gotta step it up, I'm competing with myself.

''I was thinking about lighting myself on fire, I've actually been doing some research and I've been going to a lot of Las Vegas shows, I'm going to bring it this time.''
