With their self-titled era coming to an end, Paramore
decided to celebrate with a string of intimate performances with long-time friends Copeland
. Each set will be different than the last, and the tour will focus on smaller venues."It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close," the band reveals in a statement. "We've had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one. What wouldn't feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band's career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way. So we've decided to do one last little run with it. Smaller shows, beautiful theaters…and we're not calling it a tour, by the way. Each night will be a little event, or as we said just a few seconds ago, a celebration. As we acknowledge the past few years (and more) of everything we've been through together, we're also looking forward together at all there is to come.
"Another way we want to celebrate our journey thus far, is to bring out a band who helped us in our most humble, playing 500 beats faster than we should, terrible hair, beginning. We might've never gained any traction on the road had they not allowed us on their tour almost exactly 10 years ago. So if you're coming to one of these shows make sure to get there early for Copeland.
"Lastly, thank you to anyone and everyone who made this album a milestone in Paramore's career and in each of our lives. We started this journey 3 years ago, desperate for any sort of future at all! Now we are standing taller, more confident, knowing that we are the ones who write our own future. This means you too.
Hayley, Jeremy & Taylor
