  I like Avril even more now!
Updated 28 March 2003, 09.32
Louise outside Brixton Academy
Rock chick Avril Lavigne has just performed three sell-out gigs in London.

Tickets were really hard to get hold of but Louise went along to se her fave singer in action.

Here's her report.

"When I found out I'd won the competition to see Avril in concert, I couldn't believe it.

I was really excited but totally shocked. I didn't think it was real - I thought it was a wind-up!

Early start

But it was real. I live in Edinburgh so me and my mum had to get up really early to catch a train down to London. It took four-and-a-half hours!

When we got to Brixton Academy I was really excited. I'd not really been to a concert before so I didn't know what to expect.

It was different to what I'd thought though. It seemed much bigger.

Long wait

Avril Lavigne
The atmosphere inside was really exciting. There was quite a long wait to see Avril and I just didn't want to wait.

It took ages and it was quite frustrating.

Then the support band, Our Lady Peace, came on. They're a Canadian band. They were OK but it's not what I like, it's too heavy.

Good voice

Then Avril came on! I could see her quite well.

She has got such a good voice, much better than I thought.

I've heard her sing live on TV a few times and she wasn't anywhere near this good.

All my fave songs

She played all the songs I wanted to hear, like Sk8er Boi, I'm With You, and, of course, Complicated.

But my fave song was Things I'll Never Say.

It was packed inside and there was lots of pushing, but I didn't mind. She was so cool to watch.

Overall it was a brilliant day - really amazing. I had such a good time.

And I think I like Avril even more than before now!"

Louise, 13, Edinburgh
