Avril Lavigne

Inside The Mind Of An "Artist"


Ticket sales for Avril Lavigne‘s upcoming tour are sluggish, to put it mildly. So, the singer and “songwriter” held a press conference to try and drum up interest in her new outing.

Here are some of the HIGHlights:

“My inspiration for this record, a lot of it came from the live show and knowing what kind of songs I wanted to play live. I wanted to play fast, fun songs. I love playing songs like Sk8er Boi onstage because the crowd just reacts, and I love it when everyone is freaking out and jumping.

My last record, Under My Skin, was pretty mid-tempo and darker, so every song was like bringing down the audience. So I was just wanted to rock, which is why I made a very up-tempo record.

The show is going to be very upbeat and the production will be bigger in the sense of dancers during a couple of songs, LED screens, a pink-sparkled drum kit and flags. Over time, I’ve sort of learned how I need to be on stage, and I’m more confident. It’s just more dynamic, brighter and more colorful. I’m excited about it because I’ve been working on the show for a very long time now. And it’s just going to be really fun to finally go play.”
