Avril Lavigne Tours Canada In October

Avril Lavigne Tours Canada In October

The 26-year-old has already accomplished a lot in her short career.

She’s sold more 30 million albums, thousands of Avril Lavigne tickets, and earned eight Grammy nominations.

Her 2002 debut album, Let Go, has sold more than 17 million units worldwide.

She’s released a string of hits including “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” “I’m With You,” “My Happy Ending,” “Keep Holding On,” “Girlfriend,” and “The Best Damn Thing.”

She’s created her own fashion line called Abbey Dawn and released two fragrances—Black Star and Forbidden Rose.

She’s appeared in the films Fast Food Nation, The Flock, and Over The Hedge (voice only).

She’s created a charitable organization called The Avril Lavigne Foundation that raises awareness and support for kids living with disabilities and serious illnesses.

She was also the wife of a rock star. She was married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley for three years.

While that is all fine and dandy, the greatest thing to ever happen to Lavigne came from a business located in her hometown of Napanee, Canada (the town is located on the 401 between Toronto and Montreal). In a recent interview the faux punk rocker revealed that her childhood pizza place has named a pie after her.

“There’s a pizza restaurant in the center that I used to go to when I was at high school, and they’ve turned it into kind of an Avril-themed place,” said the Avril-themed person. “There’s even a pizza named after me made from my favorite toppings: pepperoni, olives and mushrooms.”

It’s not the greatest recipe of all-time, but you know you’ve made it big when a restaurant names a pizza after you.

If the Canadian singer-songwriter was smart, and she obviously is, she would sell slices of her titular pizza pie during her upcoming tour of the Great White North.

Avril’s “Black Star Tour” kicks off Oct. 1 in Victoria, BC at the Save on Foods Memorial Centre. Her trek concludes Oct. 25 with an Avril Lavigne concert at the Centre Bell in Montreal.

Other cities on her route include Vancouver, Calgary, and Winnipeg.

Before returning to her native land, Lavigne is playing a series of gigs in South America and Europe.

During one of her shows in Brazil Lavigne was nearly accosted by an ebullient fan. Just before covering Coldplay’s “Fix You,” a female fan climbed on stage and tried to grab (perhaps in a loving way) the diminutive songstress.

Seeing the would-be attacker’s charge, Lavigne screamed. Fortunately, the assailant was nabbed by a bodyguard, none other than Avril’s brother Matt, and escorted away.

Lavigne emerged unscathed and continued on with the show.

It’s unclear whether the woman was just an overzealous fan or just wanted to avoid hearing a Coldplay song.

The entire incident can be seen on YouTube.

Lavigne is out on the road supporting her latest effort Goodbye Lullaby which dropped in March.
