Avril Lavigne (Rob Porter of RMS Media)

Welcome back to Victoria, Avril Lavigne!

Lavigne’s ‘Bite Me Canada’ tour kicked off on May 3rd marking her first nationwide tour in over ten years – which wrapped up here in Victoria Wednesday night.

Her last visit to the capital was in 2011.

The Ontario native walked out to an extremely energized sold-out crowd of 4,400 at Victoria’s Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.

This year, Lavigne also celebrates the 20th anniversary of her diamond-selling album ‘Let Go’ featuring award winning singles Sk8ter Boi and Complicated.

Her show opened with special guests grandson and Mod Sun. Victoria Buzz photographer Rob Porter of RMS Media captured these stunning shots of the 37-year-old pop-punk princess:
