Avril Lavigne adds London show to UK dates for 2020

Can we make it any more obvious?

Avril Lavigne has announced a further London show as part of her upcoming European tour for 2020.

The Canadian rocker will now play two dates at London’s O2 Academy Brixton and a show at Manchester’s O2 Apollo in support of her sixth album ‘Head Above Water‘ – which arrived in February 2019.

She’ll play the London dates on April 1 and 5 and heads to Manchester on April 2. Tickets for the second London show are now on sale and you can buy them here.


“We had the most amazing time performing on the US Head Above Water Tour!,” said Lavigne. “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!”

In a three-star review of ‘Head Above Water‘, NME wrote: ” Back in 2013, Avril Lavigne launched her last album with the nostalgic banger ‘Here’s To Never Growing Up’, which suggested she could be getting trapped by her ‘sk8er girl’ persona. When you sell 16m copies of your debut as a teenager, artistic development must be, well, complicated.

“But since 2013’s ‘Avril Lavigne’ campaign, she’s gone through divorce (her marriage to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger ended in 2015) and a debilitating battle with Lyme Disease that left her bed-bound. So, perhaps inevitably, ‘Head Above Water’ offers a more sober and grown-up kind of pop-rock than she’s known for.”
