Avril Lavigne has postponed her 2022 UK and European headline tour. The Canadian singer-songwriter was planning to tour later this month in support of her seventh studio album, Love Sux, which is released on 26 February.

The tour was initially set to take place in March/April 2020, but was pushed back to 2021 due to the global pandemic. New dates for 2022 were then announced last October. Lavigne announced the news in a social media post, stating, “Due to the ongoing issues surrounding the pandemic, there are a series of travel and venue restrictions from country to country that have made the tour not possible to happen. It’s not an easy decision, but it’s one that will help ensure that we are able to play every single date of the tour, put on the best show possible at full capacity, and operate in a safe environment. It really breaks my heart to have to do this, but I know it will be worth the wait.”

Lavigne recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about her new album’s return to her pop punk roots, claiming, “I really went back to what sounds I originally was influenced by at the beginning of my career… this time I just wanted to have fun and rock out. It just felt like it was time to make this type of an album.” The singer went on, “I wanted to keep it light and playful, which is more of a reflection of where I am today. I am comfortable and happy with who I am today, but I still go through the same struggles and I want people to feel empowered… My message is know who you are and trust who you are. A lot of these songs are about having the strength to walk away if someone doesn’t see that.”

Avril Lavigne rescheduled UK tour dates (venues TBC):
