By the time Lights announced she was performing the 2016 Parahoy! Cruise, the ship was already sold out. Fortunately, the charismatic musician has a devoted fan base, which also happens to overlap a good deal with Paramore’s. Lights rocked songs like “Toes” and “Up We Go” across three well-attended sets on the Norwegian Pearl, and found time on the cruise’s final day at sea (March 8) for an appearance on the Alt In Our Stars podcast.
“Paramore fans are super sweet,” Lights tells host Chris Payne. “It kind of reminds me of my fanbase in that everybody’s kind of misfits and they find themselves in the fanship… that’s their people.”
