Paramore - The Self-Titled Tour
2013 is definitely the year of Paramore. The pop punk trio’s comeback album went to number 1, “Still Into You” became their biggest single yet, and they put on a hell of a show for their first headlining arena tour.
I got to watch them rock Toronto, and that show was no exception. Whether it was Taylor’s wailing guitar solo during “Decode,” Hayley’s soaring vocals on “Daydreaming,” or Jeremy slappin da bass on “Ain’t It Fun,” each of the Tennessee trio worked the stage like it was a badass rock catwalk, running, spinning, and headbanging their way back and forth. Their energy is infectious.
I really respect how Paramore make an effort to genuinely connect with their fans, both online and onstage. They brought up a local choir to preach the last verse of “Ain’t It Fun,” the whole band thrashed around with a lucky fan during “Misery Business,” and Hayley even personally handed their setlist to someone in the crowd.
By the time we were covered in confetti butterflies during the epic “Still Into You,” it was clear why we’re still into Paramore. On top of being three talented bandmates, Jeremy, Taylor, and Hayley’s amazing friendship brings out the best in them and us as fans. Each one pushes the other to play harder, dream bigger, and keep moving, no matter what. That’s Paramore.
Don’t miss Paramore’s next show!
