Last night I was driving in the empty streets of LA, while I listened to “My Happy Ending”, and traveled back in time to the universe where I was a teenager with braces, friendship drama and a very old pair of converses that I couldn’t throw away for emotional reasons.

This month, Avril Lavigne (or simply the pop punk icon for every millennial out there) announced her 2024 headline tour across North America. I don’t want to brag and say that I manifested it by myself. It was probably a collective effort from all the emo kids, who are now young adults finding out how to pay their rents.

Called “Avril Lavigne: The Greatest Hits”, the tour is produced by Live Nation, and includes 27 dates. Avril will perform her biggest songs to-date including “Complicated” and “Sk8er Boi”, two highlights of her first album marked by her non-conformist persona with the destroyed jeans, loose ties and chaos inside a small-town mall. Her pink hair and smoky eye era will also shine in the tour with “Girlfriend”. Of course, Avril will perform more recent hits, such as “Here’s to Never Growing Up” too, and many more from her record-smashing catalog.

The tour kicks off on Wednesday, May 22 in Vancouver, BC at Rogers Arena, with stops in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Toronto, Charlotte, Chicago and more before wrapping up on Monday, Sept. 16 in Edmonton, AB at Rogers Place.

Our team is counting the days to join her stop in the Los Angeles area at the Kia Forum on Thursday, May 30, 2024. All Time Low and Simple Plan will join Avril on select dates throughout the tour as special guests and direct support, with Royal & the Serpent and Girlfriends joining select dates as opening acts.

TICKETS: Tickets are already available with presales throughout this week ahead of the general on sale beginning Friday, Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. local time at

VIP: The tour will also offer a variety of different VIP packages and experiences for fans to take their concert experience to the next level. Packages vary but may include premium tickets, invitation to the SK8ER BOI Hospitality Lounge, specially designed merch bundle, and more. For more information, visit

Beyond selling 50 million albums worldwide with 12.5 million units sold in the U.S alone, Avril’s live performance prowess has been widely praised throughout her storied, two-decade career:

“EPIC.” – Alternative Press

“Avril Lavigne proved she is STILL POP PUNK’S PRINCESS” – Chicago Tribune

“After all of these years, Avril still has one of the BEST AND MOST VERSATILE VOICES IN THE INDUSTRY.” – Twin Cities Media

“ENERGETIC and… EMPOWERING FUN” – The Oakland Press

“DEAFENING SCREAMS FROM THE FANS in attendance greeting her Grammy-nominated hit, ‘Complicated.’ The overwhelming reaction and boisterous sing-a-long MADE IT SEEM LIKE THE SONG ARRIVED IN 2022, NOT 2002.” – Times-Columnist

 “While it’s her hits that made Avril Lavigne pop-punk royalty, it’s the PRODUCTION OF HER SHOW that cements that status.” – The Upcoming

 “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…Fans seemed to connect with Lavigne from the show’s first notes and NEVER LET UP.” – RIFF Magazine

In addition to the North American “Avril Lavigne: The Greatest Hits tour”, Avril is gearing up for a run of UK and European performances this summer including festivals like Rock For People on June 14 in Hradec, Czechia; Nova Rock Festival on June 15 in Nickelsdorf, Austria; Pinkpop Festival on June 21 in Landgraaf, Netherlands; Hurricane Festival on June 22 in Schnee, Germany; and Madcool Festival on July 13 in Madrid, Spain; as well as two special UK headline shows at Cardiff Castle on July 2 and Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl on July 3.
