Paramore: New Zealand 2014

In news sure to thrill, PARAMORE have confirmed two New Zealand shows as part of their “self-titled” world tour. The band are equally as delighted as their army of fans is sure to be:

"We're so excited to finally come back to New Zealand! No lie, it's one of our favorite places in the entire world. Can't wait to see all of our P-more family at the shows and just party." (Hayley Williams)

Paramore will play
AUCKLAND Vector Arena – Sunday 19th January – Licensed and All Ages
CHRISTCHURCH CBS Arena – Tuesday 21st January – Licensed and All Ages

Universally hailed as an electrifying live act with sold out signs slapped on stadiums across the globe, Paramore are a band on a stratospheric trajectory seemingly without limits in what they are accomplishing. Nowhere is this more obvious than in their recently released self-titled fourth album that has received the best reviews of an already massively acclaimed career.

one of the finest rock bands on the planet” 5 STARS - Alternative Press
Paramore has captured both maturity and youthful vitality to create its best record yet” PopMatters
not only is it the band’s best album yet, it’s ambitious and sounds grown up…” NZ Herald

The album’s phenomenal success saw the Grammy Award nominated band from Nashville, Tennessee hitting #1 on Albums charts around the world including New Zealand, USA, UK, Australia, Ireland, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. The current single ‘Still Into You’ has been a permanent fixture around the top of NZ singles and radio charts and the new single ‘Ain’t It Fun’ has all the ingredients to potentially become the biggest they’ve ever released.

Paramore are a band at the top of their game, a force of nature and in vocalist Hayley Williams they have one of the best and smartest female talents anywhere in music today. Alongside guitarist Taylor York and bassist Jeremy Davis Paramore return to New Zealand as one of the biggest and brightest artists on the planet. With millions of albums sold and audiences banging down the doors, we’re thrilled to be bringing Paramore back for their third tour to New Zealand and their most spectacular and biggest production to date.

"Paramore is a band you can believe in" USA Today

Paramore’s special guests for both shows are TWENTY ONE PILOTS. Described as “schizoid pop”, twenty one pilots duo, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun from Ohio USA have become one of the most talked about artists going around. “Get in on the ground floor while you can because we’re predicting that big things are on the horizon for this young duo.” absolute punk
