Avril Lavigne fans were hit with a piece of bad news as the pop-punk singer alerted her followers that she has temporarily halted her ongoing tour in Canada.
Lavigne is currently on tour in support of her Love Sux album, but unfortunately she had to postpone the next three concerts. Her decision came into effect because of 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 added.
“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.”
Avril Lavigne made a career out of entertaining pop-punk space. After rising to prominence in the early 2000s, she has remained a popular figure in the industry. Fans are celebrating her latest album Luv Sux and it certainly hurts her as well to put the shows on halt. But of course, she has to take precautionary measures to stop the further spread of the virus. Guess, fans will have wait until next week to see her perform.
