Pass us the bright orange hair dye, because the ‘Hard Times’ are officially over: Paramore is coming to Melbourne in November, and our little emo hearts have a ‘Crushcrushcrush’.
The Grammy Award-winning US trio – Hayley Williams, Zac Farro and Taylor York – will touch down in Australia and New Zealand this November, following their most recent visit in 2018 when they played sold-out East Coast dates. Did someone say Riot?! After all this time, we’re ‘Still Into You’.
Currently taking their mammoth live show across North America, Paramore has had a whirlwind start to 2023: they embarked on a South American tour in March, joined Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour for two nights in Arizona, played two sold-out Madison Square Garden shows in June, and last week achieved a career-high, blowing crowds away at Bonnaroo with Hayley Williams jumping on stage with the Foo Fighters for a surprise rendition of ‘My Hero’. The band’s highly anticipated sixth studio album This Is Why was released in February to incredible support from fans and critics alike, topping charts in Australia and the UK.
Joined by special guest Remi Wolf, Paramore will head through Auckland, Brisbane and Sydney before landing at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on November 27, 28 and 30. It's expected to be their biggest Australian headline show to date.
A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to leading food rescue organisations OzHarvest (Australia) and KiwiHarvest (New Zealand) to help reduce food waste and create lasting positive social change.
General public tickets for the third Melbourne concert go on sale from 2pm on Friday, September 15. The Frontier Members Pre-sale will begin at 1pm on Thursday, September 14.
