Avril Lavigne, who’s currently on the road in support of her Love Sux album, has called off a string of concerts in Canada due to a positive COVID-19 case on her tour.
“To my fans and friends in Laval, QC, Moncton, NB and Halifax, NS, we are sincerely sorry to let you know that we are postponing these shows due to a positive COVID case within the tour and subsequent exposures,” she wrote on Twitter on Sunday, just hours before she was scheduled to play a show in Laval.
“Tonight’s show at Place Bell will be rescheduled for May 7th and new dates for both Moncton and Halifax will be announced shortly,” Lavigne said.
“I/we sincerely apologize and want you to know that this was not a decision we made lightly,” she wrote in her update. “We remain focused on everyone’s safety and can’t wait to see you all very soon.”
Lavigne just shared the stage with Olivia Rodrigo in Toronto on Friday, performing a duet of the Canadian star’s 2002 breakout hit “Complicated.”
Lavinge’s tour is scheduled to continue across Canada and the U.S. through the spring and summer.
In February, the singer announced that she was pushing a U.K. and Europe trek to next year (April to May 2023) due to concerns over COVID-19: “Due to the on-going issues surrounding the pandemic, there are a series of travel and venue restrictions from country to country that have made the tour not possible to happen,” she wrote to fans at the time.
