Enjoy :)

August 3:  Gallery:  From the Belo Horizonte show, we have opened up a new gallery of great pictures from the show! Hard to select favourites, because they are all pretty awesome :)  Also from the same series, thanks for the fan photo provided by @toshi_tks :)  From Sao Paulo II, more photos added and new additions to the Rio  and Sao Paulo I albums.

August 2:  Video: To start, a ton of updates today! From the Rio De Janeiro show, a steady cam with Jim on the grand piano during When You're Gone, incredible enjoyable to watch. Now to the Gallery:  New photos added to the Rio De Janeiro album (last three on bottom row),  second Sao Paulo show (starting on page three and leading into page four), and new performance picture of Jim from the Santiago show (marked as new).  Thank you to @fernanda_sales, @AlanRissato, @Rayane_ and @thalesmuniz for the fan photos with Jim :)

Jim is now on tumblr, please take a moment and follow him on his new account

Music:  We have added a link to Jim's music page that direct fans to his amazing music from his official website.  Last night Jim posted the streaming track of his song Not Alone with a photo and the story on how the song was created back in 2002 on his tumblr account. A beautiful song and story, please take a moment to listen to the song if you haven't heard it before on Jim's website. We also posted the photo in our gallery here.

August 1:  Video: From the Rio De Janeiro show, two new videos for you today :) First one Push and Smile of course, mostly the Jim parts. Second video is a four part medley. Hard to imagine that Jim's voice was "trashed" (as mentioned on his twitter comments), because quite frankly you would never know, his vocals are outstanding. Gallery:  And hot off the presses, a new album from the Rio show!  Also more photos from the second Sao Paulo show (last two in the series) and Santiago (today's additions marked as new).  Enjoy!
July 31:  Video: We wanted to change it up a bit and depart from the shaky concert home videos. We have a crisp clear clip of Smile from the AOL Sessions Avril did in May this year. And quite a few screen caps from the same performance. Enjoy!
July 30: Gallery:  We created two new albums, Sao Paulo I and Sao Paulo II  with lots of new photos. We did our best to give the due credit to everyone but if we have ommited someone - let us know.
July 29:  Jim's new single "Girls" is available on iTunes! Gallery:  More awesome photos from the first concert in Sao Paulo in the album - especially this one and this one. And a Video clip to illustrate the latter!
June 28: Articles: Jim wrote a new article for Berklee Today (as most fans know his former alma mater is Berklee College of Music) entitled Coda - The View From the Wheelhouse.   Fabulous article, jam packed with insight in the ever changing environment that is at play for musicians.  We think Jim sums up this piece quite nicely and some words of wisdom for any musician to live by "You didn't choose music; it chose you."

Gallery: New album from the Black Star Tour stop in Sao Paulo. We will be adding photos as we get them, so keep checking back.

July 27: Video: Everyone is talking about this photo taken of Jim and Avril from the Buenos Aires show during the song "Push."  We now have the video which we think is pretty damn awesome!! (also posted in MAC format).  It includes some lovely precious moments between Jim and Avril.  Take a look and you'll see for yourself :) 

Gallery: Even more new photos from Caracas (Jim with fans!), Santiago (Jim on drums), Buenos Aires (pictures start at the bottom row and on the next page).  Thanks for the cool fan photos Florencia Callejas and kmi_lavigne! 

Also just two more day to the release of Jim's new single "Girls!"  Jim mentioned he should be receiving the official single artwork soon! In the meantime, please feel free to utilize our promotional graphics page and spread the message about the single!

July 26: Video: We think everyone will like this one, a combo video (also in MAC format) that includes "Best of Jim and Avril" from Santiago show, great moments during "Push" and "Smile". Gallery: No shortage of photos today! New photos provided and send to us by fans from Buenos Aires, Santiago, (Jim also meeting fans) and Caracas. Thanks to @FabiSmiley, @barbi_gonzalez, @Rakeleiva, @vick_mdf, @Maru Miyashiro (@maru_89)!  Also could not help but mention this photo of Jim and Avril was featured in Rolling Stone Argentina review of Avril's show in Buenos Aires!  Enjoy :)   
July 25: Gallery: From the Buenos Aires show last night, 38 new photos of Jimmy from the show! We think you'll agree with us, this picture is a great one of Jim and Avril!   Hard to imagine that Buenos Aires surpassed expectations of Santiago "honestly didn't think we could have a better crowd than Santiago, but Argentina came 2 rock!" says Jim.  Brazil is next so this is certainly going to raise the bar even higher. Stay tuned we have much more to come!
July 24: Video: From the Santiago show which Jim described as "one of the best shows ever," you can certainly feel the energy within the band interlude, a must check video, these guys always continue to rock! Gallery: New photos from Santiago show thanks to Exequiel Pablo Lobos Ovalle and Felipe Ignacio Rivera Gonzalez for sending us your pics! Events:  According to Summer Sonic Festival website, Avril will be performing in Tokyo on Saturday, August 13th and Osaka, Sunday, August 14th!

July 22: Video: Two new videos from the tour including the entire band interlude from Lima, Peru. Jim and the band rock! Second vid is Avril's party anthem "Girlfriend" and the crowd is loving it!

Click articles section noted above for both interviews.
July 14: Video: Jim performed with Avril on America's Got Talent last night with a medley of "What The Hell" and "Smile."  Check out the video from the show! 
July 12: Video: Two videos for you today including a very Jim focused performance of "I'm With You" from Singapore show. Truly one of our favourite Avril songs to date :) Also from the same show and on a humourous note, a smoke machine on steriods during "Alice." Great performance, you just can't see anything :P.  Events: Two new television appearances for Jim including America's Got Talent tomorrow (thanks Jim!) and August 7th, Teen Choice Awards!

July 5: Video: An excellent version of Smile from Goodbye Lullaby Launch Concert. Hong Kong, Feb 25th, 2011.  Even though the camera is shaky it is one great version of the song, so check it out!  Also we have added a new update archive feature to the site. Anytime you'd like to see our past updates, simply scroll to the bottom of the page and view the previous updates. Our first archive page is here
July 3: Gallery:  Today we injected a bit of fun and put together a collage of cool graphic t-shirts Jim has been wearing. Also in our most recent interview with Jim, he suggests people have mentioned he looks like Alex O'Loughlin. We put together a comparision animation, we think he does, but you be the judge!
