Here at Rock Sins, we’re massive Avril Lavigne fans and proud of it. In fact, it was only last week we ran a feature on hoping she would be bringing her Head Above Water tour to the UK. Ask and you shall receive it seems!
Avril will be heading to the UK for the first time in seven and a half years next April. She’ll be playing two shows – an April Fools day London show at Brixton Academy, with a visit to the Manchester Apollo the next night (April 2nd).
O2 pre-sale for the shows begins tomorrow (16th October). The Live Nation pre-sale will follow on Thursday (17th October). Lastly, general sale will take place on Friday (18th October). Ticket prices are currently TBC.
£2 from every ticket sold will go to The Avril Lavigne Foundation – the charity Avril set up to help Lyme Disease suffers after her own lengthy battle with the condition.
Here’s an update from Avril Lavigne herself about looking forward to bringing the tour to the UK and beyond next year:
We had the most amazing time performing on the US Head Above Water Tour!! 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 on stage, 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!
We’ll be in the thick of the ticket struggle like everyone else, but in the meantime, we’ll leave you with some classic Avril.
