Paramore Announces Tour Dates
By Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
Following a summer on the Vans Warped Tour ’07 and in Europe, Franklin, TN-based quartet Paramore is launching a headlining tour Oct. 22. The trek, presented by Helio, ends Nov. 28, and the group will be joined by The Starting Line and The Almost, with Set Your Goals hopping on board for select dates.
Paramore’s new album, “Riot,” debuted in the Billboard 200 this past June at #20, marking one of the highest sales and chart debuts for its label, Fueled By Ramen (second only to Fall Out Boy) and recently jumped to #15 on the chart with more than 258,000 total copies sold to date. The album’s first single, “Misery Business,” is currently Top 10 at Modern Rock radio.
Before heading out on tour, Paramore will play three radio-sponsored festivals — the KROQ LA Invasion at Home Depot Center on Sept. 15 in Carson, CA;, KFMA’s Fall Ball 2007 at the Tucson Electric Park in Arizona on Sept.16; and KNDD’s Endfest at Qwest Field Events Center in Seattle on Sept. 22.
