Avril Lavigne â€“ The Black Star Tour Singapore
The best damn thing in May is Avril Lavigne! The multi-platinum selling singer returns to Singapore to promote her fourth album Goodbye Lullaby. Lavigne was last here in 2008 and performed a sold out concert in front of her legions of local fans.
From a small town girl in Napanee, Ontario, Lavigne has made an indelible mark on the music community, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide, earning eight Grammy nominations and seven Canadian Juno Awards. She burst onto the music scene in 2002 with the critically acclaimed Let Go, featuring the smash singles â€œSk8r Boiâ€ and â€œComplicated.â€ Her 2004 release, Under My Skin, debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, as did her third album, The Best Damn Thing, which produced the irrepressible #1 single â€œGirlfriendâ€ and logged more than 130 million views on YouTube!
No longer the skater girl, grown-up Lavigne is now 26, and with almost four years since her last album, plenty has happened. Insights from her experiences are reflected in her songs which gave the fourth album, Goodbye Lullaby a bittersweet mood, a slight departure from Lavigneâ€™s best known tunes. â€œOverall, the album is about how we all go through difficult experiences, whether itâ€™s ending a relationship, losing a job, or just missing someone,â€ Lavigne says. â€œWe get through it and we grow.â€
Lavigne looks forward to hit the road again and perform for her fans. â€œMy fans are hardcore,â€ Lavigne says. â€œThey are very dedicated and really supportive â€” the kind of fans who stick around. Itâ€™s been an amazing experience meeting them after shows and reading their letters, because the things theyâ€™ll say to me are very special. People have come up and started crying, saying, â€˜You have no idea what your music has done for me.â€™â€ Thatâ€™s all I need to hear. If I can give even one person strength through my music, thatâ€™s pretty frickinâ€™ special.â€
Avril Lavigne is going to be anything but ordinary. So donâ€™t miss this one-night only concert and get your tickets quick.
