Singer will hit Manchester and London later this year

Avril Lavigne has announced details of two UK live dates for September.

The singer will play London’s Hammersmith Apollo on September 21 and Manchester’s Apollo on September 23. The dates are in support of her fourth album ’Goodbye Lullaby’ and will be her first UK shows since 2008.

Lavigne will release her new single ’Smile’ on June 21.

Tickets for Lavigne’s shows are set to go on sale on Friday (May 27) at 9am (BST). To check the availability of Avril Lavigne tickets and get all the latest listings go to NME.COM/TICKETS now or call 0871 230 1094.

Meanwhile, pop gossip-watchers have noted that the singer put her house, a Bel Air mansion, on the market for $9.5 million (£5.9 million) recently, reports the Huffington Post. She shared the eight-bedroom, ten-and-a-half bathroom house with ex-husband, Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley. The couple finally divorced last year after years of speculation.
