Avril Lavigne Gives First Live Performance in 3 Years with Nickelback

Share :


Avril Lavigne surprised the crowd at a Nickelback concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Friday night. The “Complicated” hitmaker came out and joined the band on their song “Rockstar”, sharing a stage with frontman Chad Kroeger two years after the pair ended their two-year long marriage. This was the first time Lavigne’s first live performance in 3 years.

The band also invited a fan to jam with them on the song that serves as an audience sing-along during their shows. Nickelback took to Twitter to post about the surprise appearance, writing: You never know who will join us for ‘Rockstar’ karaoke. And tonight we got super lucky with these two Rockstars. It just might be you next.”

Lavigne who has been lying low for several years following her disclosure of a difficult battle with Lyme disease, also posted about her “Rockstar” cameo on Instagram, writing “Good to be back on stage! Feeling excited, happy and grateful.”

The “Girlfriend” singer is currently working on her new much-anticipated comeback album, on which ex Chad Kroeger is also collaborating on. Work on the album has been a challenge for Lavigne who released her last album 4 years ago and in that time, went through divorce and dealt with a debilitating disease, which left her bedridden for months. In an Instagram post from August, the singer expressed gratitude and gave an update on the album, stating “I just want to thank everyone for their patience as I work on putting together this new album,” “It’s been a long recovery and I want to make sure that this is perfect for you guys!”

However if this appearance is any indication, the Canadian singer is in a much better place these days and living her best life doing what she loves the most. Release of Avril Lavigne’s new album is expected to be by the end of this year.
