Manchester gigs - Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne has announced a run of shows across the globe for 2020 including a Manchester gig at the O2 Apollo.

Kicking off March in Milan, Italy, the European leg will hit cities including Amsterdam, Paris, and Berlin before concluding with a Manchester gig on 2 April 2020.

Following the European shows, the eight-time Grammy-nominated singer will continue her “Head Above Water” tour across China, Japan, and Southeast Asia stopping in cities including Shanghai, Tokyo, and Bangkok.

Speaking about the tour, Avril Lavigne, commented, “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!”

The tour sees Avril Lavigne touring for the first time in five years.  The tour comes in support of her sixth studio album Head Above Water which was released in February 2019.

In Europe €2 from each ticket and in the U.K. £2 from each ticket will be donated to The Avril Lavigne Foundation. The Avril Lavigne Foundation supports people with Lyme Disease, serious illness or disabilities. Through programs and grants, it provides prevention resources, funds treatment and accelerates research in order to provide hope and transform lives.
