Avril Like "She's Never Been Seen Before!"
Avril is up-front, outrageous and totally in control. And now her first dvd gives you a front-row seat at her Buffalo, NY concert and a behind-the-scenes glimpse into her amazing life. Go deeper into Avril's world and see and hear for yourself why Avril is real, rockin' and anything but ordinary.
An arena-ful of fans loved every second of this 68-minute concert (recorded in May 2003 in Buffalo, New York) by then-18-year-old pop sensation Avril Lavigne. And while the singer's charms may elude anyone older than, say, 25, that won't stop the sk8er boyz 'n' gurls who bought her Let Go
CD by the millions from digging this, her first DVD, as well. Fact is, Lavigne's rather tuneless, sometimes off-key singing isn't her strong suit. And her songwriting... well, Lennon and McCartney, or even the Go-Go's, are in no danger. But she isn't without talent, and she's got attitude to spare (even if that 'tude has a certain MTV-style lack of conviction or insight). Combine that with the loud, crunching guitars, the anthemic, driving choruses of Lavigne's songs, and tons of bonus features (including a six-song, audio-only CD), and you've got more than enough to keep the kids satisfied. After all, it's a rock show, dude. --Sam Graham
