Paramore Announce North American Tour Dates

18th July 2022 | Category: Concerts

Paramore is getting ready to hit the road later this year. The group announced on Friday that it will be touring North America starting in October.

This is their first such outing in four years. The tour mainly covers the United States plus one stop in Toronto. The tour is scheduled to begin on October 2 in Bakersfield, California, at the Mechanics Bank Theater, and includes stops in Chicago, Atlanta, and Toronto, as well as festival appearances at Austin City Limits and When We Were Young. The North American trek will conclude on November 19 with an appearance at Mexico City’s Corona Capital Festival.

The rock trio’s last studio set was 2017’s After Laughter, and since then Williams has dropped two solo records, 2020’s Petals for Armor and 2021’s Flowers for Vases / Descansos. Meanwhile, the group has focused on being what Williams called “regular friends, without getting the outside world involved.”

Earlier this year, singer Hayley Williams revealed that Paramore were in the studio working on their first album in five years. 

They may have expected some rust, but on their very first day reconnecting in a Nashville studio, Williams said, “We wrote and tracked something we loved and it actually surprised us.”

She added, “We kept joking it was all downhill from that point, but thank God we’ve been surprised a lot throughout this whole thing. I’m always waiting for the moment for us to know we’re onto something new and we’re not just rehashing the same shit. It was ‘Ain’t It Fun’ for our self-titled record, and ‘Hard Times’ or ‘Told You So’ for After Laughter. It’s not about it feeling like a hit so much as it’s a scary, exciting feeling that you’re treading uncharted waters. It keeps you curious. We got to feel that feeling early on this time.”

She also promised that the upcoming LP would put “more emphasis back on the guitar.”
