Avril Lavigne postpones her shows in Asia over fear coronavirus

metro: Avril Lavigne has reportedly postponed the Asian leg of her Head Above Water world tour over coronavirus fears. The Complicated singer has pulled out of 12 dates in Asia, including in Shanghai, the Philippines, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Taiwan, according to TMZ. The 35-year-old’s shows in Asia are set to kick off on April 23 in Shenzhen, China. Sources claimed Avril team are hoping to reschedule the show at a later date once coronavirus is under control.

She joins musicians like BTS and Green Day in cancelling upcoming shows in Asia amid the virus outbreak. The Sk8er Boi singer’s tour starts next month in Europe – with concerts in Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, the UK and more. It is not known if her European dates will be affected by the reported cancellations.

Avril has already had to cancel her gig in Switzerland on March 13 following a ban any events with more than 1,000 guests until at least March 15 in a bid to combat the spread of coronavirus. The singer shared her ‘disappointment’ at the cancellation on her Instagram Stories. ‘My show on March 13th has been cancelled. I am really sorry about this but the decision is completely out of my control,’ she wrote. ‘I was really looking forward to come and see you all and very disappointed that the show can now not proceed. We have tried to reschedule the date but sadly that is not possible on this tour.

Avril said fans would be getting a full refund, before concluding: ‘I hope to get back to Switzerland as soon as I can.’ There are 15 confirmed coronavirus cases in Switzerland, with more than 100 people in quarantine. The virus has now spread across the world, with major outbreaks in South Korea, Japan, and Italy. More than 83,000 people have contracted the disease, with more than 2,800 fatalities.
