Paramore, The Final Riot!

Story by Jack Foley

PARAMORE have confirmed they will be playing a one-off UK club show on September 7 while they are in the country to promote their forthcoming new album Brand New Eyes.

The band will be returning to the first ever venue they played in the UK back in April 2006; the O2 Islington Academy.

This £5 per ticket, one-off intimate show is a change from the arena tour the band have just completed with No Doubt in the States, as well as from their previous sold-out headline UK tour, which culminated in two sold out shows at London’s Brixton Academy.

Lead singer Hayley Williams says: “This show will be a chance to get back to the core fans and show them we remember who were there first and we appreciate them. We can’t wait!”

Tickets for the September 7 show will go on general sale on Friday, August 21, at all the usual outlets, as well as from the venue direct – but they will be limited to a maximum of two tickets per person.

No hard tickets will be sent out, the purchaser will have to leave their name and will need to collect their ticket on the night upon the presentation of valid identification.

Paramore’s new single Ignorance is released on September 14, followed by the album Brand New Eyes on September 28.
