Avril Lavigne's ticket sales for her upcoming tour aren't as high as planned. So in an attempt to drum up attention, Avril held a press conference so people could get to know the real her, aka buy tickets. Here are some clips:
"My inspiration for this record, a lot of it came from the live show and knowing what kind of songs I wanted to play live. I wanted to play fast, fun songs. I love playing songs like Sk8er Boi onstage because the crowd just reacts, and I love it when everyone is freaking out and jumping.
My last record, Under My Skin, was pretty mid-tempo and darker, so every song was like bringing down the audience. So I was just wanted to rock, which is why I made a very up-tempo record.
The show is going to be very upbeat and the production will be bigger in the sense of dancers during a couple of songs, LED screens, a pink-sparkled drum kit and flags. Over time, I've sort of learned how I need to be on stage, and I'm more confident. It's just more dynamic, brighter and more colorful. I'm excited about it because I've been working on the show for a very long time now. And it's just going to be really fun to finally go play."
