"My World" will feature a concert, a behind-the-scenes featurette, five music videos and a six-song bonus audio CD that includes four unreleased tracks. The performance was filmed May 18 in Buffalo, N.Y., on the final date of Lavigne's five-week headlining North American tour. Video clips for "Complicated," "Sk8er Boi," "I'm With You," "Losing Grip" and "Knocking on Heaven's Door" are also included in the DVD package.
"Dude, We're Going to Rio" is a feature film starring Pharrell as a New York youth who travels to Rio de Janeiro in search of romance. The movie features music from Pharrell and fellow Neptune Chad Hugo's album "The Neptunes Present ... Clones" (Star Trak/Arista), the former chart-topper that showcases more than a dozen artists produced by the duo. In addition, the DVD features a never-before-seen N*E*R*D (also Chad and Pharrell) performance of "Rock Star."
"Clones" debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 earlier this month and has sold 507,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. Lavigne's Arista debut "Let Go" peaked at No. 2 on the chart a year ago and has sold 5.8 million copies in the U.S.
Here is the concert track list to "My World":
"Anything But Ordinary"
"Too Much to Ask"
"I Didn't Give"
