The Paramore tour is rescheduled for next month and there’s a makeup date for the L.A. shows. It’s part of the band’s latest move to postpone their tour while they deal with the COVID-19 crisis.
Los Angeles: Paramore are rescheduling their upcoming concert series due to the COVID-19 crisis, with a makeup date set to be announced later. They’re also changing the makeup date for this weekend’s series.
Paramore posted on Facebook on Thursday, March 31st, 2020, in response to a “coronavirus” announcement they made on social media. In the news post, their drummer Kenyatta Moore wrote that Paramore was “not doing any concert tours or any other concerts this year.”
The band said they were working on a revised schedule and would let fans know when it was ready.
“We appreciate and appreciate the support of our fans over the past few months. We will have more information about the upcoming schedule and makeup date soon,” the post read.
Paramore have been toying with the idea of rescheduling their series of concerts this year and next year. The last major show was April 30th at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. and it was planned to be followed by a series of appearances in Europe.
The band played a handful of festival shows in April before their North American tour. They played their first U.S. live show at the Long Beach Arena on April 17th, where they made their first television appearance. The shows included a stop at the House of Blues in Anaheim on April 24th and at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena on April 25th. They also played at the House of Blues on April 30th.
Wednesday night’s L.A. show sold out weeks in advance, something that hasn’t happened at any of the shows in the last two years. The band’s last live show in L.A. was Saturday night at the Staples Center.
On Tuesday, Paramore announced that they will hold performances at Fox Theatre in Westwood on April 22nd and the Hollywood Bowl on
