Get ready to relive the early 2000s as pop-punk queen Avril Lavigne announces two colossal outdoor shows in the UK for the summer of 2024.

The iconic Sk8er Boi singer is set to grace Cardiff Castle in Wales on July 2, followed by a spectacular performance at Manchester's Castlefield Bowl on July 3 as part of the renowned Sounds Of The City series.

Avril Lavigne, celebrated for her chart-toppers like Complicated and Girlfriend, will bring her energetic stage presence and a string of hits to the UK. Fans can secure their spots as tickets for both shows go on sale this Friday at 10 am.

The Canadian sensation, known for her rebellious attitude and catchy anthems, dropped her latest studio album, Love Sux, in February 2022. The album, featuring Lavigne's signature blend of punk and pop, received a deluxe makeover in November the same year.

It was quite the year for the former teen icon as she also finally received her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which also helped to commemorate 20 years since her seminal album Let Go.

These UK gigs are just a taste of Lavigne's extensive summer tour in 2024. The celebration of Love Sux will kick off on the 13th June in Austria, followed by electrifying performances in Spain, Italy, Germany, and France. Lavigne is ready to turn the summer into a global pop-punk fiesta.

In recent Avril Lavigne news, the pop-punk icon surprised fans at the When We Were Young festival. Not only did she join All Time Low for their collaborative track Fake As Hell, but she also treated the audience to a nostalgia trip with her timeless hit Sk8er Boi.

This summer rendezvous wasn't her first surprise appearance. Earlier, Lavigne shared the stage with Miranda Lambert during the CMA Fest, delivering a rocking performance of Complicated that left the crowd in awe.

As anticipation builds for Avril Lavigne's upcoming UK shows, fans can expect a mix of classic hits and newer tracks, all infused with her trademark rebellious spirit. So, mark your calendars, grab your tickets, and get ready to experience the unforgettable energy of Avril Lavigne live in the summer of 2024. It's a date no true pop-punk aficionado would want to miss!
