Fresh off their performance of the title track from their forthcoming album, This Is Why, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Paramore have announced a North American tour hitting 26 cities, kicking off in Charlotte. With support from Bloc Party, Foals, The Linda Lindas and Genesis Owusu, the tour will kick off on May 23 at Spectrum Center with English rockers Bloc Party and Ghanaian-Australian singer-songwriter Genesis Owusu, making stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, Austin’s Moody Center, Los Angeles’ Kia Forum, and Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena. Paramore last performed in Charlotte at Ovens Auditorium in 2017.
The announcement comes off the heels of their limited U.S. theater performances and festival appearances at Austin City Limits and When We Were Young.
The Grammy-winning band released their last album, After Laughter, in 2017, and lead singer Hayley Williams released two solo albums: Petals for Armor in 2020 and Flowers for Vases / Descansos in 2021. Their forthcoming sixth album, This Is Why, is set to be released on Atlantic Records February 10, 2023.
A portion of ticket sales for all North American shows will also be donated to Support + Feed and REVERB. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, November 11 at 10 a.m. (local time). Check out the pre-sale details below.
