This isn’t the first time that Avril Lavigne’s Manila show has been pushed back. The concert was first announced for May 20, 2020 but had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Avril Lavigne isn’t the only international act who has announced a show in the Philippines for this year. American alt-rock band The Maine are slated to perform in Manila in August, while pop rock act Boys Like Girls play three shows in October.
Canadian-American singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette will also return to the Philippines for two shows this November. She was previously scheduled to perform in the country in 2021, but had to postpone due to the pandemic.
