“Why did it take us 5 years to get here? Can't wait to come back to New Zealand. Please, dear God, let it be soon. Never had so much fun in 3 days in my whole life. NZ, we'll miss you!” (Hayley Williams on Twitter, March 2010)
Solid Entertainment, C4 and The Edge are delighted to welcome back Paramore, the hottest band on the planet to their favourite part of the world!
Having played two rapturously received shows earlier in the year Paramore loved every moment of their time spent on our shores and in thrilling news for fans and band alike they’re bringing their spectacular new arena show back to New Zealand in October.
Paramore will play Wellington for the first time at TSB Arena on Thursday 7th October and their Auckland show on Friday 8th October is at Vector Arena, NZ’s largest indoor venue. Both venues are all ages and licensed events.
Paramore 2010 is a worldwide story of sold out tours and a band burning brighter than ever. Everywhere they play they’re filling rooms with their explosive and infectious energy and now, with a recent Green Day European stadium tour under their belts the band are firing like never before - no venue is big enough to contain their force of nature!
The Christchurch and Auckland shows earlier in the year bore witness to Paramore as one of the most exciting bands of the decade with fans coming face to face with the irrepressible flame haired firebrand that is Hayley Williams. In Hayley Paramore have an inspirational front woman like no other. 100% the real deal – with the voice, the presence and performance marking her out as probably the most respected young musician of the new generation, and propelling Paramore to stratospheric levels.
These are shows not to miss (and plenty did earlier in the year with the Auckland tickets selling out in a flash.) It will also be the first opportunity to see lead guitarist and co-songwriter Josh Farro joining the fun for the first time - having been unable to travel on their last tour due to wedding arrangements.
In a sense the band have hardly been away – Paramore’s album and singles have been riding high in NZ and Hayley Williams has spent much of the last few months on top of the radio and hit charts with a #1 single collaboration with B.O.B. titled ‘Airplanes’.
If you witnessed Paramore last time, no doubt you’d be returning to sing along once again and if you missed out last time don’t think twice! Get in quick! Early purchase is advised!
Tickets on sale Friday 9 July 9am.
Both venues are all ages and licensed.
Wellington - Thursday 7th October - TSB Bank Arena.
Auckland - Friday 8th October - Vector Arena.
