Avril Lavigne concert chronology

The Head Above Water Tour is the sixth concert tour by Canadian recording artist Avril Lavigne. The tour will support her sixth studio album, Head Above Water (2019). Beginning on September 14, 2019, the tour currently plays 15 concerts in North America, 16 in Europe, and 12 in Asia, with the current end date set for May 24, 2020. It is also her first concert tour in five years, after The Avril Lavigne Tour.[1]

The tour was announced by Lavigne on her social media on June 24, 2019.[2] She also announced that a portion of the proceeds from every ticket sold on the tour will be donated to The Avril Lavigne Foundation to raise awareness and fund treatment for those in need.[3]

Set list[edit]

The set list is representative of the September 14, 2019, show at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle.[4] It is not intended to represent every show.

Commercial Performance[edit]

The tour was announced in June, 2019 becoming her first tour in five years, and her first U.S Tour as a headliner since The Black Star Tour in 2011. The shows in New York City and Detroit were completely sold out. Tickets went on sale for the concert in Manila in December 21, 2019, which will be held at Smart Araneta Coliseum that has capacity up for 16,000 people. Due to the high demand, extra concerts were added in London, Milan and Tokyo. The concert in Vienna was moved to Wiener Stadthalle, due to high demand in the country. The last time Avril performed in Austria, was in 2008. The shows in Italy and Switzerland also had venues upgraded due to the demand. Tickets for Berlin and Cologne shows were sold out three months before.
