International rock superstars PARAMORE are making their highly anticipated return to Australia for their first headline shows in four years, bringing Tour Four to Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena this February. Paramore are touring in support of their ARIA #3 charting album After Laughter. New York indie-pop band Bleachers will be joining Paramore on the tour for their first ever Australian shows.
Paramore’s fifth album was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A – also their first time recording in their beloved hometown. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Jimmy Eat World, Beck) and Paramore’s own Taylor York, After Laughter signalled the return of founding member Zac Farro to the band. It debuted at #3 on the ARIA Charts, featuring the hugely successful singles ‘Hard Times’ – which has had over 50 million views on its colourfully playful video which Billboard declared “addictive” – and ‘Told You So’ which saw over 7 million views in its first two weeks alone.
Long regarded as an exhilarating live act with a non-stop show led by the fearless Hayley Williams, with Taylor York on guitar and Zac Farro back on drums, Paramore are a bona fide juggernaut, selling over 6 million albums and leaving a trail of sold out headline arena tours in their wake. They have sold out iconic venues around the world including Madison Square Garden and Wembley Arena, and performed show-stealing headline festival sets at the likes of Reading and Leeds Festivals, Riot Fest and their own four-day festival cruise PARAHOY!. With Tour Four hitting some of Australia’s most well-loved arenas, these will be Paramore’s first headline shows Down Under since their last tour in February 2014.
