Paramore Reschedules Tour Dates

Shall I skip the clever intro and just get to the point? Hayley Williams has layringitis. Her voice gave out at the very end of their first night on the tour, in Pomona, CA. The audience belted out “Misery Business” with the rest of the band in her absence. One night of rest wasn’t enough for her pipes, though–they postponed last night’s Hollywood Palladium show and then this morning came the announcement that all the dates until October 9th have been rescheduled.

So, this week I saw one of the best doctors in the country to check on my vocal cords. I knew it wasn’t going to be good but knowing that we were just starting our tour, I was trying to remain positive about it. In short, I’ve got laryngitis and need several days of vox rest. Luckily, we caught it early on. It’s not like I’ve got some impending doom hanging over my head in which every time I play a show I’m going to wonder if it’s the last one… I just have to be smart about this whole thing. So – we may have to rework the way I do stuff on the road.. like not only do I need to watch what I eat – but how much I talk at meet and greets and signings and press. I might have to go back to wearing that “I’m on voicerest” button that I used to wear all the time. Ha. Ha. IT SUCKS!!!” (via
