Avril Lavigne will hit the road next spring in North America in support of her most recent RCA album, "Best Damn Thing." The trek, announced yesterday (Nov. 6) during a media event at Los Angeles' Whisky A-Go-Go, will feature opening acts Boys Like Girls.

Dates begin March 5 in Victoria, British Columbia, and run through May 9 in Spokane, Wash., with more to be added. Tickets go on sale Nov. 17.

"Before, my show has always been me and four guys," Lavigne told Billboard in March. "That's what I wanted at that point in my career. But now? F*ck it." Indeed, this time around, the artist will be backed by an expanded band as well as dancers.

"Best Damn Thing" debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 1.2 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
