Over the weekend, Olivia Rodrigo performed at Toronto’s Massey Hall where she brought Avril Lavigne on stage to perform “Complicated.”
While out on her “Sour World Tour,” Olivia Rodrigo has been paying tribute to Lavigne with a cover of her 2002 hit, “Complicated,” every show. While in Toronto, Lavigne came out on stage to perform the track as a duet. Both Lavigne and Rodrigo donned plaid miniskirts and platform Dr. Martens for the cover.
Before bringing her out on stage, Olivia Rodrigo called Lavigne someone “who broke down so many barriers, and opened so many doors for girls like me. I can’t sing her praises enough. She’s from Canada, and I’m so, so, so lucky because she came here tonight to sing with me.”

“Jumped up to sing ‘Complicated’ on stage with @oliviarodrigo in Toronto tonight,” Lavigne wrote on Instagram after the show. “It was very sweet to perform with you tonight on your SOUR tour!! Have an incredible tour gurl. Keep killing it. Sending you so much love.”
Earlier this year, at the Grammy Awards, Olivia Rodrigo brought home Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album. She’s set to continue on tour all the way through until July.
