Paramore to Bring 'Tour Four' to Auckland in February 2018

Paramore to Bring Tour Four to Auckland in February in Support of Their New Album After Laughter

Grammy award-winning, international rock superstars PARAMORE are making their highly anticipated return to New Zealand for their first headline show in four years, performing at Auckland’s Spark Arena on February 13, 2018.

Paramore are touring in support of their RIANZ #7 chart album After Laughter with special guests still to be announced.

Tickets on sale Midday Wednesday, November 15.

Spark customers will be able to access a special pre-sale commencing 2pm, Friday November 10.

Paramore’s fifth studio album was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A – also their first time recording in their beloved hometown. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Jimmy Eat World, Beck) and Paramore’s own Taylor York, After Laughter signalled the return of founding member Zac Farro to the band. Featuring the hugely successful singles Hard Times’ – which has had over 50 million views of its colourfully playful video which Billboard declared “addictive” – and Told You So’ which saw over 7 million views in its first two weeks alone.

Long regarded as an exhilarating live act with a non-stop show led by the fearless Hayley Williams, with Taylor York on guitar and Zac Farro back on drums, Paramore are a bona fide juggernaut, selling over 6 million albums and leaving a trail of sold-out headline arena tours in their wake. They have sold out iconic venues around the world including Madison Square Garden and Wembley Arena, and performed show-stealing headline festival sets at the likes of Reading and Leeds Festivals, Riot Fest and their own four-day festival cruise Parahoy!.

With Tour Four hitting Auckland’ Spark Arena in February this will be Paramore’s first headline show Down Under since their last tour in February 2014.

Paramore have had a truly remarkable run since forming in Nashville in 2004, from their gold-certified debut All We Know Is Falling (2005), to 2007’s 2x platinum breakthrough Riot! and platinum-certified albums Brand New Eyes (2009) and Paramore (2013). The Grammy-award winning band have consistently drawn both critical acclaim as well as a wide-ranging list of international honours and accolades, multiple Grammy nominations and a win for Best Rock Song (for Ain’t It Fun’), two People’s Choice Awards, three NME Awards, three MTV Video Music Award nominations and much, much more.

Howard Davis: Roddy Doyle's Grim and Gritty Rosie

Although it was completed over two years ago, Roddy Doyle's first original screenplay in over eighteen years has only just arrived in New Zealand. It's been well worth the wait. More>>

Simon Nathan: No Ordinary In-Laws

The title of this short memoir by Keith Ovenden is misleading – it would be better called “Bill, Shirley and me” as it is an account of Ovenden’s memories of his parents-in-law, Bill Sutch and Shirley Smith. His presence is pervasive through the book. All three participants are (or were) eloquent, strongly-opinionated intellectuals who have made significant contributions to different aspects of New Zealand life. Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
