Paramore Cancel Remaining Dates On US Tour Due To Illness

Hayley Williams has confirmed that Paramore have been forced to cancel the final stops on their North American tour in Portland and Salt Lake City.


Following the postponement of four dates last month due to Hayley Williams suffering from a lung infection, after performing at a rescheduled show in Seattle last night (August 9) – the singer took to Instagram stories to share the sad news.

“My lungs are just not healing quickly enough to keep up. It got a little scary tonight.”

“We will have the team post an official statement ASAP but we are going to have to cancel the last 2 shows of the tour so I can get better finally. I know some of you are camping in Portland already so I just wanted to get this out there.

“I’m so sorry for all the chaos this has caused some of you. I really tried to kick this shit. Love you all.”

Paramore were due to perform at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum on August 10 and the Delta Center in Salt Lake City on August 13 to close out their North American tour in support of latest album ‘This Is Why’.

Paramore’s summer US shows have seen a selection of familiar faces join the band to perform ‘Misery Business’, including Lil Uzi Vert and Billie Eilish.

The trio will return to the UK next summer when they support Taylor Swift on her huge run of stadium shows in June.

Hayley Williams also recently featured on Taylor Swifts ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’ alongside Fall Out Boy.
