Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger Down Under
They may be one of the most polarising groups in rock, but fans in their thousands have turned out to see Nickelback’s first Australian concert – and Canadian pop rocker Avril Lavigne has joined the band Down Under!
Taking a break from wedding planning, the ‘What the Hell’ singer touched down in Perth on Sunday with fiancé Chad Kroeger as his band played a near sell-out stadium show.
Avril and the band have since jetted off for further shows in Brisbane and Adelaide.
After a secretive whirlwind romance, Kroeger proposed to Lavigne in August after just six months together, with the wedding date set for next year.
But the ‘How You Remind Me’ singer is letting his fiancée take the lead when it comes to plans for the big day!
“She's got great ideas. I would have gone a little too traditional, I think, and she's giving it a real rock n' roll edge,” Kroeger told Men’s Health.
“Let's just say she's taking the bull by the horns and steering the ship towards what is going to be the most unique wedding that the planet has probably ever seen.”
