Live Nation are thrilled to announce that pop-punk princess Avril Lavigne has today announced 2 UK shows in September this year in Manchester and London, her first in the UK since 2008. When singer, songwriter, and musician Avril Lavigne first burst upon the music scene at age 17, she was known as a young, pop-punk tomboy who refused to resort to skin-baring come-ons, preferring to entice the record-buying public with her powerhouse voice, high-spirited melodies, and straight-talking lyrics. Staying steadfastly true to herself and putting music before image paid off both critically and commercially for the Canadian-born artist. In 2002, Lavigne shot to global pop stardom with the 6x-platinum Let Go, followed by 2004’s 3x-platinum Under My Skin, and 2007’s platinum The Best Damn Thing. Over the course of her three albums, Lavigne scored a string of international hit singles: “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” “I’m With You,” “Losing Grip,” “Don’t Tell Me,” “My Happy Ending,” “Nobody’s Home,” “Keep Holding On,” “Girlfriend,” “When You’re Gone,” “Hot,” and “The Best Damn Thing.” She earned eight Grammy Award nominations, won seven Canadian Juno Awards, and sold more than 30 million albums and nearly 20 million tracks worldwide over the past eight years. Now she’s back with her 4th Studio album ‘Goodbye Lullaby’, released earlier this year and is heading over to the UK to wow her fans with a brand new show. Don’t miss it! Dates as follows SEPTEMBER 2011 WEDNESDAY 21 HMV HAMMERSMITH APOLLO FRIDAY 23 O2 MANCHESTER APOLLO Tickets go on sale 9am on Friday 27th May priced at £32.50 adv LONDON / £29.50 adv MANCHESTER (subject to booking fee) and are available from http://www.livenation.co.uk
