'We had the most amazing time performing on the US Head Above Water Tour!! I can't believe how quickly it went by. Seeing all your faces each night and feeling your energy was exactly what I needed. I truly missed being up on stage, singing with you and this has brought me so much happiness which is why I'm even more excited to announce that I'll be taking the Head Above Water Tour worldwide next year with dates in Europe, Japan, China and Southeast Asia!" said Lavigne.
Currently on her 15-date North American run, Lavigne continues to wow audiences across the country as she hits 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
In Europe €2 from each ticket and in the U.K. £2 from each ticket will be donated to The Avril Lavigne Foundation.

Of The Month - October 2016 - The Beards
The Beards - Sadly all good things must come to an end and this year see’s everyone’s favourite Australian Bearded rockers The Beards calling it a day, the band who formed back in 2005 have made a career of singing about Beards and in the ten years they have been together as a band they have toured constantly and released 4 studio albums titled ‘The Beards’, ‘Beards, Beards, Beards’, ‘Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard’, ‘The Beards Album’ and also the most recent greatest hits ‘Ten Long Years, One Long Beard’ and every song on these albums is about beards.
Back at the start of the year the band announced that they were calling it a day and frontman Johann Beardraven had this to say “We feel like we've achieved what we set out to achieve through music, everybody now agrees that beards are great, so the time has come for us to rest on our laurels. But not before we go around one last time and say a heartfelt thankyou to everyone who's come out to see us over the years, and especially to everyone who's grown a beard, or adopted a pro-beard attitude.”
The band have spent the majority of the year touring across Australia saying a final farewell to their homebound fans and now the band are currently touring across mainland Europe before saying a final farewell to their UK fans in the middle of October and it is the perfect time to see the band on the live circuit as not only is it a farewell tour but the band will also be playing two jam-packed sets of bearded anthems from their impressive back catalogue, incorporating both the stripped-back acoustic sound that helped them gain radio play in Australia, and the infectious pop-rock that has won them a legion of fans worldwide.
The Beards are much-loved by audiences around the world for their refreshingly original concept, highly-interactive live shows and trademark sense of humour. Don't miss this hugely-entertaining Aussie phenomenon's victory lap of Europe this October.
