So, I’ve seen a large number of news postings about Avril Lavigne’s “profanity-laced rant” during her appearance at the Rays Summer Concert Series on Saturday night. According to numerous reports, Avril “unleashed a downpour of obscenities” or “let a few profanities fly.” Just to set the record straight, that’s not exactly what happened.
I was standing in the photo pit, directly in front of the stage and not six feet from Avril during the first part of her show. After struggling through two songs with multiple dead microphones, Lavigne was escorted off stage by her crew. With a new, working microphone in hand, Avril did drop the F-bomb once, or maybe twice, while expressing her feelings about the situation. It was not directed at the crowd, only a little bit of ill-placed stress relief. It definitely wasn’t a “profanity-laced rant.”
Maybe I’ve covered too many metal shows where most of the evening is dominated by profanity, because I didn’t really think that it was that bad. I agree that it might have been better for Avril to find a few less-offensive words, but I’m sure that it was just stress and frustration.

She may not have any U.S. dates currently on her tour schedule, but pop-punk rocker Avril Lavigne managed to slip into the states for a single show. On Saturday night Lavigne performed as part of the Rays Summer Concert Schedule, a post-game concert series hosted by the Tampa Bay Rays.

The live music scene around the Tampa area is full of choices for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Check out a few of my suggestions below:
Thursday: Seven Mary Three at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino, Tampa – I’ll be on-hand to cover this show, so check back for pics on Friday.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Jannus Live, St. Petersburg – Old-school hip-hop in downtown St. Pete.
Blast Friday: Atlanta Rhythm Section, Cleveland Street in front of the Capitol Theatre, Clearwater – Free concert from a great band. What more could you ask for?
Avril Lavigne, Tropicana Field (after the Tampa Bay Rays game), St. Pete – Yeah, the field will be full of screaming teen fans, but it should still be a good show.I plan on wading into the mayhem for a few good pics, so be sure to check back for updates on Sunday.
97X Backyard BBQ w/Sick Puppies, Panic! At The Disco, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, AWOLNATION, The Airborne Toxic Event, Hugo, Marksmen, Vinoy Park, St. Petersburg. – I’m going to miss this event because, well, I’ll just say it……. I’m getting old. Getting into and out of events at Vinoy Park is a pain in the butt and I’d rather not put myself through the hassle unless it’s a really big show that I can’t avoid.
