avrilAvril Lavigne Announces Greatest-Hits Tour With Pop Punk giants Simple Plan & Girlfriends stopping at Jones Beach on Tue, Aug 27 - tix:

Avril Lavigne is giving fans their "happy ending" on her upcoming The Greatest Hits Tour which will have Lavigne performing such smash hits as “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi” and “Girlfriend”

Anytime an artist with a whole lot of hits goes on tour, that tour should be a greatest-hits tour, unless that artist explicitly states otherwise. But there’s a whole lot of power in branding, and sometimes it helps to let people know up front that they’re going to hear “Complicated” and “Girlfriend” if they buy an Avril Lavigne ticket. Lavigne, whose insanely massive debut album Let Go is now more than 20 years old, has entered her legacy-artist phase, performing at the emo nostalgia-fest When We Were Young and performing her old smashes with artists from Olivia Rodrigo to Miranda Lambert. Now, she’s announcing her greatest-hits tour.

Lavigne's latest release, her seventh studio album "Love Sux," was released in 2022 with assistance from Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker... Avril Lavigne will hit the road this spring for The Greatest Hits Tour with Simple Plan and Girlfriends.. That year also saw Lavigne receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The "Complicated" singer told USA TODAY it was great to "get back" to an old sound... "It was so much fun to get back into that sense of wanting to rock out," Lavigne said of working on the new record, which arrived in various formats, including cassettes. "I didn't really overthink anything. I got together with people who understood me in this genre and we complemented each other so well." - Avril Lavigne will be bringing her best damn songs from The Best Damn Thing and her six other studios album on the road for the Avril Lavigne: The Greatest Hits tour. The career-spanning run will feature special guest appearances from Simple Plan & Girlfriends.. Lavigne is celebrating another full circle moment with Simple Plan joining the tour, sharing: “They toured with me on my very first tour, so it’s only fitting we are doing it again!”
