Paramore Announces Intimate Spring “Celebration”

Fueled By RamenParamore has announced an intimate U.S. tour for the spring, except they're not calling it a tour, exactly.

A posting on the band's Facebook page reads, "It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close. 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."

The message continues, "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."

The band signs off by writing, "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."

The tour, billed as Writing the Future: An Intimate Evening with Paramore, will feature the band Copeland as the opening act. Paramore credits Copeland for helping them get their foot in the door by bringing them along on their tour ten years ago.  Tickets go on sale to the general public on January 30 via email subscribers will get a code to buy tickets on Monday, January 26 at 9 a.m.
