Avril Lavigne has confirmed her debut headlining tour, which will take the 18-year-old Canadian artist through 18 dates across Europe next March. Lavigne is currently playing a host of radio-sponsored multi-artist holiday shows throughout the U.S.

She is supporting her Arista debut "Let Go," which peaked at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 in September and has sold 2.5 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The set has spawned two top-10 hits: "Complicated," which hit No. 2 on Billboard's Hot 100, and "Sk8er Boi," which topped out at No. 10. A third single from the album, "I'm With You," debuted last week at No. 63 on the chart.

As previously reported, Lavigne is a finalist in two categories for the 2002 Billboard Music Awards, to be held Monday (Dec. 9) at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena and broadcast live on Fox beginning at 8 p.m. ET (tape delayed on the West Coast). Lavigne, who will vie for the best female artist and best new artist awards, will also perform both "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi" at the awards.
