Quote from Avril:
“I missed being up on stage in Asia, singing with you! It’s always brought me so much happiness, which is why I’m so excited to come in 2020 for the Head Above Water World Tour!”
On her 15-date North American run, Lavigne wowed audiences across the country after hitting the road for the first time in 5 years. The “Head Above Water” tour, which kicked off September 14, is in support of her critically acclaimed sixth studio album, Head Above Water, which debuted in the Top 10 following its release on February 15, 2019 via BMG.
The tour’s initial shows have received an outpouring of fan and critical acclaim:
“Avril Lavigne's new tour is an UNCOMPLICATED PARADE OF HITS… Lavigne flew through a career-spanning set of angsty jams, party-starters, and stirring ballads… the HIT-PACKED SHOW is a FUN-LOVING CELEBRATION OF HER LEGACY.” – MTV
“Avril Lavigne kicks off first tour in five years with CAREER-SPANNING SETLIST… and it’s pretty EPIC.” – Alternative Press
“It felt like Lavigne had never left. Her voice had new depth and power, but her performance was just as BOUNCY, ENERGETIC AND FUN as in the past… Lavigne’s performance was a statement of growth she’s made in the past three years and a CELEBRATION OF THE HITS… Fans seemed to connect with Lavigne from the show’s first notes and never let up.” – RIFF Magazine
