    Avril Lavigne will not reschedule concerts she postponed due to laryngitis, including one that had been scheduled for May 10 in Everett.

EVERETT — Avril Lavigne fans shouldn’t keep holding on to tickets for her Everett concert.
Today, the international pop star canceled her appearance here and has no intention to reschedule it, contrary to previous reports.
Refunds are available at the point of purchase.
Citing a case of laryngitis, the pop star bailed on eight dates in late April and early May, including a May 10 show at Comcast Arena at the Everett Events Center. Then, organizers said the concert was postponed. That has changed.
"They were unable to reroute the tour to include the dates, unfortunately," said Ashley Graham, a spokeswoman for Live Nation.
Lavigne has concerts booked through August, taking her to Europe, Canada and other areas of the United States.
In a message posted on her Web site after the original cancellations, Lavigne apologized to fans.
"I have been sick this whole tour, and now I have lost my voice," she wrote. "I have never canceled a show in my whole career and just had to for the first time ever. This sux!"
Lavigne, 23, rocketed to fame with her 2002 debut, "Let Go." The Canadian singer scored her first No. 1 hit in 2007, with "Girlfriend." That song also boosted her appeal abroad, with a chorus recorded in eight different languages, including Mandarin and Portuguese.
