Paramore Announce Spring U.S. Tour Dates

After Hayley Williams and co. were plagued by illnesses last fall, they're hitting the road again.

The last time [artist id="1968732"]Paramore[/artist] hit the road to support their Brand New Eyes album, it was a less-than-smooth trip.

On the first night, frontwoman [article id="1622641"]Hayley Williams lost her voice[/article], forcing the audience to provide her vocals for the remainder of the show. Then, the band [article id="1622920"]postponed a handful of dates[/article] while Williams recovered from laryngitis. And when they finally returned to the road, [article id="1624181"]Paramore battled a seemingly endless string of illnesses[/article], leading Williams to tweet that she was "seriously considering buying a gas mask."

Hopefully, things will go a little better this time around. Because on Thursday, the band announced their second batch of dates for a lean, mean spring jaunt, scheduled to kick off on April 26 in Knoxville, Tennessee. The band will crisscross the continental U.S. (including a May 1 stop at the Bamboozle Festival at the Meadowlands in New Jersey) and bring the tour to a close on May 16 with a gig at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Joining Paramore on the trek are Relient K and fun. Tickets will go on sale to fan club members beginning this Monday (February 1), and will then be made available to the general public starting on February 5 and 6. For more information, check out Paramore.net.
