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. 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.
Avril Lavigne’s concert in Manila is just one of the many concerts in Manila with international acts that have canceled due to the continuous spread of the coronavirus.
