Avril Lavigne is coming to Manchester to perform a huge outdoor gig at Castlefield Bowl next summer.

The Canadian singer-songwriter has announced two outdoor shows in the UK in 2024.

She will be performing at Cardiff Castle on July 2nd before heading to Manchester to play at Castlefield Bowl on July 3rd, as part of the Sounds Of The City series.

The star will be supported by Canadian rock band Simple Plan, best known for their song ‘I’m Just a Kid’.

Lavigne enjoyed success with her pop-punk songs in the noughties, including the hits ‘Sk8er Boi’, ‘Complicated’ and ‘Girlfriend’. 

She is best known for her monochrome punk-style, smokey eyes and long blonde hair – something every skater girl wannabe copied.

The punk-pop star shared her latest studio album back in February 2022 under the title ‘Love Sux’. She later released an expanded deluxe version of the LP in November of that year.

She has received eight Grammy Awards nominations, including Best New Artist.

The UK tour will be a celebration of her Love Sux album and will be part of wider touring throughout Europe in 2024, taking place at festivals including I Days in Milan on July 9th, Festival de Nîmes in Nîmes on July 10th, and Festival Cruïlla in Barcelona on July 12th.

The singer is yet to announce any more UK dates as of yet, but the upcoming dates in Manchester and Cardiff won’t be her only shows lined up for next summer.

Tickets to see Avril Lavigne perform next year will go on sale this Friday, December 1st, at 10am and will be available to buy HERE.
