Paramore Announce Australian and New Zealand Shows
Paramore have announced they will return to Australia and New Zealand for a run of shows this November.
The news comes after the band teased fans on social media. “G’day,” they posted on social media last week, alongside the date 27 June 2023. A link was included which led to a special website, Paramore Down Under, which asked “why we gotta be in a rush?” On the website, fans were able to sign up with their email address to receive updates about the potential tour.
Fans’ patience has now been rewarded with three Australian dates and a stopover in New Zealand. They’ll perform in Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in November, supported by special guest Remi Wolf (see full dates below).
It will be the band’s first time in Australia since 2018. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, July 6th at staggered times (Auckland at 10am AEST/Brisbane at 11am AEST/Sydney at 12pm AEST/Melbourne at 1pm AEST).
The Frontier Members pre-sale begins on Monday, July 3rd, again at staggered times (Auckland at 10am AEST/Brisbane at 11am AEST/Sydney at 12pm AEST/Melbourne at 1pm AEST).
It’s been a busy year so far for Paramore, with dates in South America and North America, while they joined Taylor Swift on The Eras Tour. Hayley Williams also joined Foo Fighters on stage at Bonnaroo earlier this month, performing a surprise rendition of My Hero.
Paramore are touring in support of their latest album, This Is Why, which hit No 1 in the UK on its release in February. The album came after a four-year hiatus, which singer Hayley Williams commented on in an NME interview on the album’s release, “It was a necessary detour. It was necessary not to be so hung up on being Paramore: it’s all it’s ever been. We were in junior high when we met, and by the time we had gotten out of high school, everyone knew who we were and the way we related to each other naturally changed.
