Mic Check: Avril Lavigne at CSU’s Wolstein Center on Wednesday

Posted By on Tue, Mar 25, 2008 at 11:09 AM

It’s been six years since Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated” came out -- six long years. These days, Lavigne fans shrug indifferently when the Canadian singer performs the song in concert. They reserve their loudest cheers for “Girlfriend” and other songs from last year’s The Best Damn Thing. Avril’s grown up (she’s married and owns a multimillion-dollar mansion); her fans haven’t. Which brings the pop star to a sort of crossroads in her career. Does she continue to make the hooky pop that’s made her one of the best-selling artists of the decade? Or does she move on to something bigger and bolder? We’re all for hooky pop songs, but The Best Damn Thing is actually kinda short on them. The Best Damn Tour, however, has six years’ worth of material to choose from. So the hooks ratio oughta be high with “Sk8er Boi,” “My Happy Ending,” and the one we’ll be cheering for, “Complicated.” -- Michael Gallucci Avril Lavigne performs at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at the Wolstein Center at CSU, 2000 Prospect Avenue. Tickets range from $18 to $47.50, available by calling 216-241-5555.
