Paramore Pay Tribute to Robin Williams


It’s been four days since news broke that Robin Williams passed away at the age of 63 from suicide in which he hung himself with a belt in his room and we all know how many fans are still in mourning.

During a recent stop on their co-headlining MONUMENTOUR with Fall Out Boy, Paramore paid tribute to the late comedian.
The frontwoman, who seems to have fully recovered since the band had to reluctantly cancel several show a couple of weeks back, gave a touching speech before dedicated their song, “Last Hope” to the late actor.

The speech begins with Williams reminiscing about the past ten years that the band had been on the road, from their beginning as this little unknown band, to now selling out arena and how there was a time where they were not happy at all and were in a place that was “depressing.”

Paramore Cancel Two Tour Dates Due to Illness


For fans of Paramoe who were looking forward to seeing the Nashville-based band on their co-headlining tour with Fall Out Boy this summer, it looks like they’ve had to bow out for a couple of stops.

The band was forced to cancel two Texas stops on the “Monumentour,” one in Corpus Christi and the other in Dallas due to frontwoman Hayley Williams falling ill with a chest infection and exhaustion.

As of now, it looks like their show tomorrow (August 7) in Albuquerque is still on, but with illnesses that bad especially for the voice of the band, fans should keep an eye out for updates from the band about that.

Check out a message from Williams, explaining the decision to pull out of the two stops.

“Writing from my bunk to let you know that my doctor and my vocal coach have told me I can’t play tonight either. I have a chest infection and … Something called “exhaustion”. Ha. 

Words in this tiny little message cannot begin to express my frustration, sadness, and overall loopiness (the latter is likely just from the cortisone and antibiotics…ugh.) 

Corpus Christi, you’ve been on my mind since I woke up this afternoon and Dallas, you’ll be on my mind the rest of the night. I absolutely hate canceling anything. Admitting defeat is a tough thing for this gal. 

Anyway. Thanks for understanding as much as you can. Of course any frustration on your part is totally understandable. I’m thankful for all the get well soon’s and all the love I’ve seen online. Big special thanks for FOB camp as well for helping by extending their set last night. We absolutely love being out here with those guys and their crew.

As for the rest of the tour. It is still on. Doctor thinks I’ll be good to go in the next day and certainly before the next show. 

Texas, the guys and I will be back to you as soon as we can.

Pray for me if you pray. Fist bump me if you don’t. 


Skunk Battles Its Way to the Front of Paramore Show


We know that Paramore has a big fan base, but did you know that also included woodland creatures?

Well, that became apparent during the band’s stop in Cincinnati, OH for their co-headlining MONUMENTOUR with Fall Out Boy. Things were going great until frontwoman, Hayley Williams noticed there was huge commotion going on in the crowd down in front during their song, “The Only Exception.”

Word got to the singer that a skunk had found its way into the crowd. After finding out what was causing the ruckus, she made a comment about the matter.

“Apparently, it’s just a skunk down there, spraying you with its love and generosity,” she said. 

“That’s never happened before!” she added. 

Seems that the skunk was fighting its way to the front of the crowd. Got to given the smelly, black and white creature some cool point and kudos for getting to the front of the crowd, something that we’re sure even some concert veterans still have trouble with. 

Kudos, Pepe LePew. 

Watch Fall Out Boy Participate in a Drum-Off


Fall Out Boy has just begun their “MONUMENTOUR” Summer tour with Paramore and New Politics this past week, and we have already begun to get some cool videos from it.

Yesterday, video surfaced of FOB covering Queen’s iconic song, “We Are the Champions” and today, video was released of frontman Patrick Stump and drummer Andy Hurley having a major drum-off to the tunes of, get this, Slayer AND Jay-Z.

Quickly, it seems like these kind of drum-offs will be a major staple of Fall Out Boy’s set during this tour, because video of them doing similar antics during their stop in Mansfield, MA and Hartford, CT has already made its way onto the internet.

Check out the video below and if you haven’t already gotten tickets to an upcoming date of the “MONUMENTOUR,” you might want to reconsider that.
