Contributed Anonymously: To think I was a fan of Avril Lavigne is unbelievable. I still like some of her songs on CD, but her live show was truly terrible. Her voice is a lot worse live than on CD. She was off key through all the songs, and then other times she sounded so mediocre that anybody could be up there singing her songs. She could never hit the notes. Even simple songs like “Complicated” every time she’s speak through the verses and when she says ‘car’ or ‘are’ she sounded off out of breath and off pitch.
I honestly never heard her guitar playing because her band would play over her. It is pretty easy to hold a guitar and act like you are playing when their are 4 other guys playing over you. I think she can play 2 chords and that’s it, because on her song “tomorrow’ she played slow and the same 2 chords. She kept looking at the guitar like she was nervous and didn’t know what she was doing because this was the first and only time she didn’t have a huge band backing her up, only one other guitar in back.
Lastly her piano playing wasn’t playing at all. She played a VERY 2 very simple notes on ‘Forgotten” repeating the same note slowly. Although through most of the song you never heard any piano because it’s a song with loud guitars playing over it.
Now, I still enjoy her CD’s some of the songs anyway, but I am so disappointed. I went there to convince my friend that she was talented and when I came out I liked her so much less. I thought she was something she wasn’t. She can’t even sing well. I always knew she was fake but I didn’t care about that I just thought she has nice songs. Now I am totally changing my tune. This girl truly wasted my money and night. It wasn’t even entertaining. I would have rather went to Britney Spears’ strip show than this boring show. I am so upset about it. NOBODY should see her in concert.
