Pop-punk princess Avril Lavigne has announced that she will be going on her first North America tour in seven years. The tour includes 30 dates as well as teaming up with the Backstreet Boys for a combined tour.
Lavigne made the tour announcement on her website. Fans took to social media to react about the news and the combined Backstreet Boys and Lavigne tour started to trend on Facebook and Twitter.
The "Complicated" singer is just wrapping up her 7-week arena tour that was sold out in Asia.
Lavigne will kick off the United States portion of her tour in Seattle, Wash., on May 22, The Huffington Post reported.
Lavigne expressed her excitement about heading back on the road and teaming up with the Backstreet Boys. "I'm excited to stay on the road and cannot wait to see all my fans across the Americas!
