Paramore, Best Coast to embark on North American tour in the fall

Paramore’s fifth studio album hit stores last week and now, it looks like the band is ready to take the new tunes on tour. On Monday (May 15), the Tennessee-founded band announced plans to hit the road this fall. The tour, which has been named “Tour Two,” will kick off on Sept. 6 at the Moran Theater in Jacksonville, Florida and conclude almost a month and a half later on Oct. 17 at the Ryman Auditorium in the band’s hometown of Nashville. Best Coast will open for Paramore for most of the excursion with the exception of all three Florida stops (Jacksonville, Miami, and Orlando).

For fans ready to purchase tickets, there will be a total of three pre-sale options. The first pre-sale option is AT&T’s priority pre-sale which begin on Thursday, May 18, at 10 a.m. local time. More information about that option can be seen here. The second pre-sale option available is for Citi® card members. Those who qualify will get the opportunity to purchase tickets beginning Saturday, May 20, at 10 a.m. local time through Citi’s Private Pass® program. More information about that option can be seen here.

The third and final pre-sale option comes directly from Paramore. Like many bands hitting the road this year, Paramore has joined forces with Ticketmaster to combat bots and scalpers. Fans who are interested in purchasing pre-sale tickets through the band will need to register and become a verified fan. Those who register, and are verified, will receive a unique code on Wednesday, May 17, two hours before the tickets go on sale. Once they get to the pre-sale page to purchase the tickets, they will need to enter the unique code which will guarantee them tickets. Registration to become a verified fan is currently available here and will end on tonight at 10 p.m. PST.

Once all the pre-sales end, general admission tickets for the tour will begin next Wednesday, May 24, at 10 a.m. local time. For more information about the tour, head on over to Paramore’s website here.

In support of After Laughter, Paramore has revealed that they will make several live television appearances. On Wednesday, May 17, the group will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! while on Wednesday, May 24, they will perform on The Late Late Show with James Corden. After a few months away from live television, the band will return to the small screen on Friday, Aug. 25, when they hit the stage as part of Good Morning America‘s 2017 “GMA Summer Concert Series.”

Paramore Announce Second Annual PARAHOY! Cruise Lineup

All aboard the second annual PARAHOY! cruise.

On Wednesday (Oct. 28), Paramore announced the lineup for the second voyage of their now-beloved cruise. Taking to Facebook, the band posted a video revealing the 2016 lineup. The video features frontwoman Hayley Williams (and her pooch, Alf) pulling out a notebook and writing the names of the acts joining Paramore on the four-day trip.

Heading out on the Caribbean cruise alongside Paramore will be X Ambassadors, LIGHTS, mewithoutYou, Vacationer, New Found Glory, and CHVRCHES. The announcement that CHVRCHES will be joining the trio on the cruise comes a couple of hours after footage of Williams joining the Scottish trio on stage for their song “Bury It” in Nashville surfaced.

The four-day excursion will kick-off in our hometown (and New Found Glory’s, kind of) of Miami on March 5, 2016. From Miami, they will head to Cozumel, Mexico and then return to the port in Miami on March 9, 2016. Sadly, tickets for the cruise have been sold out since May, but there is a silver-lining. The band announced there is currently a wait list going on the PARAHOY! website for those who might want to test their luck a little bit.

The inaugural PARAHOY! cruise took place back in March of 2014. Due to the band’s full touring schedule earlier this year, the group wasn’t able to bring their touring fun to the high seas.

Paramore Take on the High Seas

Paramore-2013

Cruises are one of the coolest ways to go on vacation and at the same time get the best bang for your buck; come on, why do you think there are so many ships and locations to pick from?

Recently, it has become a trend for musicians to get their own cruise ship and take some of their hardcore fans (who could afford it) to come along for watery adventures.

Today, it was announced that Paramore would be hopping onboard the new vacation trend and take some of their fans on their own trip on the high seas in a package titled, “Parahoy!”

For $650, fans can set sail on 4-night cruise, March 7-11, 2014 from Miami to a private island in the Bahamas and have fun with the band members.

Throughout the four nights, fans will get the chance to play activities with each band member, participate in a Q&A session as well as attend two of their performances while on the boat.

WHAT YOU GET
4-night luxury cruise, with a stop at our very own private island in the Bahamas
2 shows on the pool deck by your hosts, Paramore
Q&A with Paramore on the Pool Deck
Activities with each member of the band
Autographed commemorative cruise print
Dozens of concerts by other great bands
Great dining options, fun activities, contests, and more!

But that’s not where all the fun ends!

Tegan and Sara will also be jumping on ship as special guests while other bands that will be joining the high water adventures, will soon be announced.

Like it was said earlier, Paramore aren’t the first to get into the cruise ship business; Weezer, Matchbox Twenty, the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block have also taken their fans onto the high seas as well.

For now, check out the band’s announcement to fans about the cruise:
