After spending their summer opening for [artist id="1003"]No Doubt[/artist] in 15,000-seat amphitheaters and massive hockey arenas, [artist id="1968732"]Paramore[/artist] pledged to go "smaller" on the headlining tour in support of their forthcoming Brand New Eyes album.
"We haven't hashed it all out yet, but it will be smaller, due to the fact that the tour we're doing right now is so large and, like, ticket prices are on a whole new level ... everything is a whole new level for us," frontwoman Hayley Williams told MTV News. "And we love it, but we want to do something that's really intimate and that our fans can be right up there and don't have to break their banks [for tickets]. It will just be really fun. I'm stoked."
And, it looks like they're making good on that promise.
On Wednesday (August 12), Paramore announced the dates and (decidedly small — for them, at least) venues for that tour, which kicks off on September 29 — the same day Brand New Eyes hits stores — in Pomona, California, and will crisscross the continent for a month before wrapping with a November 1 homecoming gig in Nashville. Fueled by Ramen labelmates the Swellers and fellow Nashville act Paper Route will serve as the opening acts.
Special pre-sale tickets go on sale Monday, with remaining ducats going on sale to the general public on August 21 and 22. For more information, check out the band's official site, Paramore.net.
