She’s now confirmed details of the newly scheduled dates, which you can check out in full below. All original tickets remain valid.

Mon March 1 2021 – O2 Academy Brixton, London
Tue March 2 2021 – O2 Academy Brixton, London
Thu March 4 2021 – O2 Apollo, Manchester

Announcing the cancellation of the original shows, Lavigne said: “A heartfelt message to my fans: As you all are aware, governments across Europe have continued to impose restrictions banning large public gatherings because of the continued spread of the coronavirus. Now the United States of America has implemented its own travel ban.

“With these restrictions in place it means that I am no longer able to bring the Head Above Water Tour to Europe and the United Kingdom. And it sucks!”

The whole list of shows cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis can be found here.

Lavigne’s last album came in 2019’s ‘Head Above Water’, which NME described as “a deeply honest album that sounds a lot like growing up gracefully.”
