Paramore Announces Fall North American Tour

Paramore is set to resume operations this fall, having recently announced a string of North American headline dates.

The Franklin, Tennessee band have been off the road for nearly four years, with their last show taking place in Nashville on September 7, 2018 at the end of a summer run for their fifth album, After the laugh. In the years that followed, singer Hayley Williams launched a solo career, releasing the albums Armor Petals (2020) and Flowers for vases / Descansos in 2021.

The first thoughts that Paramore was brewing for a return to action came last year when, when asked about further solo releases during a Twitter Q&A with fans, Williams said, ” I’m ready for the next Paramore album. Let’s go.”

Paramore is one of the headliners, alongside My Chemical Romance, of the upcoming emo/pop punk/post-hardcore festival When We Were Young, taking place over successive weekends in October in Las Vegas. Now they have announced headline shows on either side of the festival.

Paramore will play:

October 04: Magna The Great SaltAir, Utah
October 6: Omaha Orpheum Theater Omaha, NE
October 08: Oklahoma City The Criterion, OK
October 09: Austin, TX city limits

October 14: Bonner Springs Azura Amphitheater, KS
October 16: Austin, TX city limits

October 23: When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas, NV
October 29: When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas, NV

Regarding the sound of the upcoming album, Williams told Rolling Stone, “The music that first excited us wasn’t exactly the kind of music that we went on to make. Our output was always all over the place and with this project, it is not so different.

“We’re still in the thick of it, but a few things have stayed consistent from the start. 1) More emphasis on guitar, and 2) Zac should go “Animal” as he wants with drum takes. “
