Avril Lavigne Takes the Stage for First Time in Nearly 3 Years to Perform with Ex Chad Kroeger and Nickelback
"Good to be back on stage! Feeling excited, happy and grateful," Lavigne – who mostly left the spotlight while battling Lyme disease – wrote on Instagram
Avril Lavigne is back in action.
The Canadian singer took the stage for the first time in nearly three years over the weekend, joining ex Chad Kroeger and his band Nickelback to perform their hit single “Rockstar” at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
“You never know who will join us for ‘Rockstar’ karaoke,” the band wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo of Lavigne onstage. “And tonight we got super lucky with these two rockstars. It just might be you next!”
Throughout their Feed The Machine North American tour, Nickelback has invited fans onstage to perform the 2006 track with them.
Lavigne, 32, shared video from her cameo to social media as well, writing, “Impromptu performance of ‘Rockstar’ with @nickelback last night in Los Angeles.”
“Good to be back on stage,” she added. “Feeling excited, happy and grateful. #feedthemachinetour #family.”
Lavigne last toured her own music in August 2014. Since then, she’s mostly stayed out of the spotlight while battling Lyme disease.
Just last month though, Lavigne revealed that she’s currently working on a new album – her first since 2013’s Avril Lavigne – sharing on Twitter, “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!!”
“You only deserve my best effort and that’s what I’m going to deliver!” Lavigne added. “I can’t wait to share the new music I’m working on, I promise it’ll be here before you know it!! Love you, Avril.”
