Paramore Announce North American Tour
Paramore will hit the road this fall for a full-scale North American trek.
The alternative rock group’s “The Self-Titled Tour” will visit arenas and amphitheaters across the U.S. and Canada, and will include a stop at New York’s Madison Square Garden for the first time and a date at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans.
The tour, which comes in support of the band’s chart-topping eponymously-titled new album, will start Oct. 15 at Seattle’s KeyArena and wraps Nov. 26 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Tickets for the 27-date tour go on sale from July 26 at LiveNation.com and Ticketmaster.com. Presales for official members of Paramore.net begin today at noon EST, and Live Nation mobile app users will have access to presale tickets from Thursday.
Canadian alt-rock outfit Metric and indie pop group Hellogoodbye will open for Paramore on selected live dates.
Promoters Live Nation has hinted that more dates will be announced.
Paramore nabbed its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart in April, beating the trio, opening with 106,000 first-week sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The band is booked to perform “Still Into You” as part of their first-ever live appearance on FOX’s Aug. 11 awards show Teen Choice 2013, where they are up for multiple categories.
