Hey, hey, you, you, do you want to see Avril Lavigne live in concert next year?


There seems to be an early noughties renaissance happening at the moment, with Nickelback tickets being announced and Blink 182 headlining Reading and Leeds Festival, and now Pop Punk queen Lavigne is coming to the UK to perform two headline shows.

Back in the early noughties, nobody was doing it like Lavigne; the Canadian singer’s tank top and tie combo, cargo trousers, and studded bracelets paired with signature charcoal eye makeup was something school-age us could only dream of replicating.

The Going Out team has essentially grown up with Lavigne, so it’s hard to believe there was a time where the world’s ears weren’t blessed with ballads like When You're Gone and I’m With You. Lavigne’s big break came at the age of 14 when she won a radio competition to duet with That Don't Impress Me Much singer Shania Twain. The duo sung What Made You Say That, and it proved to be such a success that Lavigne left school to pursue music full time.

The rest — as they say — is history! The Girlfriend singer went on to achieve three UK number ones with her first three albums; her debut album Let Go featured the smash-hit singles Sk8r Boi and Complicated, and it earned her five Grammy Award nominations and multi-Platinum status in the UK, making her the youngest solo artist to score a number one album this side of the pond, at aged 17.

Her sophomore album, Under My Skin, debuted at number one in countries around the world, and her third album, The Best Damn Thing, also reached number one in seven countries, and its single Girlfriend reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

To date, the singer-songwriter has sold 40 million albums worldwide and has eight Grammy Award nominations under her belt. So, if you’re keen to see the Pop Punk princess live, here’s how to secure tickets to see her today.
