Paramore will hit the road this spring for a month of intimate theater shows, kicking off April 27 in Augusta, Ga. 

The 17-date trek called "Paramore: Writing the Future" also includes a play at Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala. and will see the Tennessee trio hitting venues such as New York's Beacon Theatre, Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre (formerly Kodak). See the full dates below.

"It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close," said singer Hayley Williams in a statement, referring to the band's eponymous 2013 LP. "We've had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one." 

Williams clarified the band is not actually referring to this as a "tour." Rather, each night will be a "little event" -- a "celebration."

"What wouldn't feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band's career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way," she continued. "So we've decided to do one last little run with it. Smaller shows, beautiful theaters.... As we acknowledge the past few years (and more) of everything we've been through together, we're also looking forward together at all there is to come."

Joining Paramore on the non-festival dates will be Copeland, who Williams credited for helping the band greatly early on by bringing the new act on tour almost 10 years ago. 

Tickets will go on sale for the tour Monday, Jan. 26 at 9 a.m. for the band's email subscribers, and then to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 30.
