Rejoice, sugary pop-punk fans, because Nashville darlings Paramore are heading back to Australia & New Zealand next year for a run of arena shows up the east coast.

It’s the first time the trio have been to Australia since their tour with Twenty-One Pilots in 2014, and they’re returning to big venues with Tour Four to promote their latest album, ‘After Laughter.

The band themselves have transformed several times in their thirteen-year history, with Hayley Williams sticking as vocalist through the rotation of dudes backing her.

Paramore have seemingly settled on a final form, and the trio (Williams, guitarist Taylor York and drummer/prodigal son, Zac Farro) have continued the band’s maturing sound, forging themselves as a powerful player in a genre of music that has traditionally been dominated by all-male lineups for the most of its existence (I’m talking like 30+ years, here).

The trio will be hitting the following venues early next year, and tickets are available through Live Nation on November 15 over HERE.

Thursday February 8th, Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne.
Friday February 9th, Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney.
Sunday February 11th, Riverstage, Brisbane.
Tuesday February 13th, Spark Arena, Auckland.
