Avril Lavigne Postpones Her Asia Tour Dates Due To Coronavirus Outbreak
The singer announced the news on Instagram earlier this week.
Looks like things are getting complicated for a certain Canadian singer. Due to a recent spread in coronavirus, Avril Lavigne’s Asia tour has been postponed. The 35-year-old singer took to Instagram to share the message with her fans earlier this week.
Back in 2018, Lavigne made ato the music industry after stepping away from the spotlight for some time to deal with her ongoing health issues.
In June, the “Girlfriend” singer announced that she’d be headed out onto promote her most recent album, Head Above Water. In November, Lavigne announced additional dates for the tour, expanding it to Europe, Japan, China, and Southeast Asia.
Unfortunately for those planning on attending one of the Canadian singer’s international shows, they’ve now been postponed due to continuous coronavirus outbreaks.
“I am so sad to announce that we are unable to tour the Asian markets due to the continuous outbreak of the coronavirus. My band, crew and I have been working so hard to bring this tour worldwide and are completely bummed out,” Lavigne wrote on Instagram.
“Please everybody take care of yourselves and stay healthy. You’re in my thoughts and prayers and we are hoping to announce rescheduled shows soon.”
Although disappointed, Lavigne’s fans seem to understand and support her decision to postpone her tour, especially because of the fact that she suffers from.
“You’re one that would have a compromised immune system; pls don’t go to any high areas with this virus. Your team and you made the right choice,” one fan wrote in the Instagram comments.
According to The Canadian Press via CP24, the “Sk8r Boi” singer isn’t the only one to postpone shows due to coronavirus. Wolf Parade, Green Day, and the National have all put a pause on their tours that were scheduled to take them overseas.
In just a few days, Lavigne will be taking her tour to Europe, stopping in countries such as Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands, among others.
