Singer/ songwriter Avril Lavigne has postponed her sold out Japanese tour dates scheduled for May 2011 out of respect for the many families that are still grieving or searching for their loved ones following the March 2011 natural disaster and the continued uncertainty of the situation at the Fukushima nuclear plant, further earthquakes and ongoing aftershocks.

Lavigne plans to return with The Black Star Tour and dates will be announced as they are re-scheduled.

Avril is continuing to work on projects to provide support to children and their families in Japan and has joined in the relief efforts by making available the single, “Keep Holding On,” on Amazon.com with 100% of the net proceeds going to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief Fund.
