Singer Avril Lavigne will cross her home and native land this summer, performing in 15 cities from Victoria to Halifax. The tour, announced Tuesday, begins July 13 in London, Ont., then stops in Ottawa and Toronto before heading to the Prairie provinces and British Columbia through late July and early August.
Lavigne's current record Under My Skin has sold more than seven million copies and produced several hit singles. She tops the nominees list for this weekend's Juno Awards with five, including artist of the year, fans' choice and best songwriter.

In other news, talk about Avril's 4th single for "Under My Skin" has confused media, as "He Wasn't" has been released with major success to places like Canada and Japan, but has not been on US TV or radio. It's now confirmed by AllAccess that the Americans will be getting "Fall To Pieces" instead, which is to hit airwaves on April 19th. Avril's last ballad - "I'm With You" stayed on top of Billboard adult top 40 chart for 10 weeks, so the single is expected to reach the same height of success. Avril is currently on tour with the very talented Butch Walker.
