Avril Lavigne has announced UK tour dates for April next year. Well, it’s two shows. But “Avril Lavigne has announced UK two dates” sounds weird. Let’s stick with “tour”. London to Manchester and back again to fly home counts as a tour.

“We had the most amazing time performing on the US Head Above Water tour”, she says. “I can’t believe how quickly it went by”.

Ah yes, she recently did a US tour. And she played more than two dates on that. Actually, you know what, she’s actually doing a twelve date European tour and in most countries she’s only playing one show. So British Avril Lavigne fans are actually doing pretty well. German fans are getting four shows though, and isn’t that just playing right into the Brexiters’ hands?

Um, yeah, anyway, she continues: “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!”

Not sure about all this Europe, Japan, China and Southeast Asia nonsense, we’re here to talk about the good old fashioned definitely not European UK tour. All two dates of it. And here they are…

1 Apr: London, Brixton Academy
2 Apr: Manchester, Apollo

Tickets go on sale on Friday.
