Avril Lavigne Has Announced A 2020 World Tour – Including UK Shows
Canadian pop-rock star Avril Lavigne has announced a whole bunch of 2020 gigs as part of her Head Above Water world tour – including two stops in the UK.
The Sk8er Boi singer will be taking her latest record Head Above Water (as well as a ton of career-spanning bangers) through Milan, Amsterdam, Paris, London and more as part of an 11-city European run next year, before then performing in China, Japan, and Southeast Asia.
“We had the most amazing time performing on the U.S. Head Above Water Tour!” Avril enthuses. “I can’t believe how quickly it went by. Seeing all your faces each night and feeling your energy was exactly what I needed. I truly missed being up onstage, singing with you and this has brought me so much happiness which is why I’m even more excited to announce that I’ll be taking the Head Above Water Tour worldwide next year with dates in Europe, Japan, China and Southeast Asia!”
