In the summer of bad girls, Avril Lavigne could not be missed: the concert in Milan

In the summer of bad girl she couldn’t be missing. Twenty years after her most successful songs (Complicated, one above all), the former girl from Napanee, Ontario, the one you couldn’t help but find on rotation on MTV in the 2000s, she returned to Italy.

Avril Lavigne – now 39 – brought 34 thousand nostalgics and Gen Z to the I-Days in Milan, between Simple Plan and Sum 41. Under the stage there were those who learned to skateboard with her, those who copied her to put black eyeliner on their eyes for the first time or color the ends of their hair. And then there were the girls of today who admire (and copy) her style Pop punk of the beginning of the millenniumand find his debut album cult, Let’s Go, dated June 4, 2002. After all, the first icon today to mention it was Billie Eilishcommenting on their meeting with these words: “Thank you for making me what I am.”

Avril in Milan was the protagonist of a show that lasted just under an hour. In the setlist, the hits that everyone expected: Complicated, I’m with you, Sk8ter boy, He Wasn’t, Girlfriend. The lyrics of his adolescence (and a little of ours too), written in his bedroom, mixing fears, insecurities and ambitions. The karaoke effect is inevitable, a sort of Max Pezzali in pop punk key.

Almost at the end, the Canadian singer-songwriter wanted to pay homage All the little things by Blink 182, her high school soundtrack. A way to go back to where it all started and close the circle. Fun fact: after her, the stage of the Ippodromo in Milan saw the arrival of Sum 41, with her ex-husband Deryck Whibley protagonist. But that’s another story.
