Hayley Williams to head out on first-ever solo tour in the spring

Hayley Williams is hitting the road this spring, armed with a brand new set of tunes and a new attitude.

On Thursday (March 5), the Paramore frontwoman announced plans to hit the road later this year in support of her debut solo album, Petals for Armor. Dubbed the Petals for Armor tour (because what else?), the outing will find the musician performing at venues across the continent throughout May and June.

The North American-centric tour will include shows in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Brooklyn, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, and more.

The 17-stop trek kicks off on May 28 at the Moore Theatre in Seattle and concludes a month later on June 29 at the Brooklyn Ballroom Nashville.

There are currently two different ways to get first dibs on tickets for the newly announced gigs. You can pre-order Petals for Armor on the record’s official website from now until this Sunday (March 8).

You can also register for Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program from now until Sunday (March 8) to unlock an exclusive ticket pre-sale code.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale beginning this Tuesday, March 10. General ticket sales begin next Friday, March 13, at 10 a.m. local time.

Arlo Parks will join Williams during the North American excursion.

“Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore, and truthfully, it’s just a little terrifying. But if I know anything, it’s that there’s no safer place (besides at home with my dog) than to be in a room, on a stage, in front of the people who I’ve grown up singing my lungs out for. There was a time I thought I wouldn’t tour Petals For Armor. What a joke. I must,” Williams writes in a press statement.

She continues: “This is a brand new adventure. It’s important to embark on something new every now and then just to show yourself that you can. I welcome the discomfort and the joy, and I’m ready to be present for this.

The first run of shows is going to be hot, sweaty, and intimate. My brand-newly-formed band and I will be playing rooms that Paramore outgrew a decade ago. It’s going to be so satisfying to feel the energy of a crowd that close again, especially while performing songs that feel so vital for me; songs I have never performed before for an audience.

Thank you for the chance to tour this. I hope to see a ton of old friends and make some new ones too.”

The upcoming tour is in support of Williams’ forthcoming album, Petals for Armor. The record is due out May 8 through Atlantic Records.

Last month, Williams revealed that she would release an exclusive five-track collection titled Petals for Armor I. The EP will include “Simmer,” “Leave it Alone,” and “Cinnamon.”
