Avril Lavigne’’s rocking concert goes off without a hitch in MalaysiaAugust 30th, 2008 - 6:40 pm ICT by ANI
Kuala Lumpur, August 30 (ANI): All the fuss and furor over Canadian teen pop-rock star Avril Lavigne’’s concert proved completely unfounded as she gave a stupendous performance at Stadium Merdeka last night.
It was a pop concert, with no element of a rowdy punk-rock performance as was being feared by some quarters who had initially objected to her coming here.
PAS Youth leaders had criticised the timing of the concert, claiming that the culture Lavigne promoted, was not appropriate especially so close to Merdeka Day, reports The Star Online.
All of that haze was cleared when Lavigne entertained, the estimated 15,000 people with songs from her three albums, bursting into life in typical fashion for several hit numbers.
Lavigne was dressed casually in jeans and a black T-shirt as she took to the stage with her first song Girlfriend, and only had one costume change, into a grey T-shirt, in the one-and-a-half-hour show.
There were many who stood in raincoats to watch the star do her thing. The crowd remained excited throughout, singing and dancing along to Lavigne’’s entire 17-song set. (ANI)
