Paramore postponed another trio of dates due to what the band have described as an “illness within the tour party”. The move came after the Hayley Williams-fronted band canceled a show in San Francisco on Saturday night at the Chase Center due to illness, just hours before the show was scheduled to take place.
The show was quickly rescheduled to the same venue for August 7.
In a statement to fans on Sunday, the band wrote, “after much discussion, in the interest of our health and being able to put on a show you all deserve, we have decided to reschedule our shows this week in Seattle, Portland and Salt Lake City.”
Those shows, at Climate Pledge Arena, Veterans Memorial Coliseum and Vivint Arena respectively, with openers Foals and Linda Lindas, will now take place (again respectively) on August 9th, August 10th and August 13th.
As with the San Francisco show, tickets previously purchased for all shows will be valid for the rescheduled dates; if fans are unable to attend the new dates and would prefer a refund, instructions will be sent to them and refunds will be offered over the next week. The next scheduled date on the band’s current tour in support of them This is why album is scheduled to take place on July 29th at the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK.
At press time, a spokesperson for the group had not returned a request for additional information on the reason for the postponements.
After wrapping up their current North American tour on August 13 in Salt Lake, the band will move on to a tour of Australia and New Zealand in October before joining Taylor Swift again next spring for the European leg of her Eras tour, which kicks off on May 9 with the first of four dates at Paris La Défense Arena in Paris; Paramore will appear on all 48 European match dates.
