Hayley Williams Admits She's Terrified to Tour Without Paramore


Paramore’s Hayley Williams has already started releasing solo music for the first time off her upcoming album Petals for Armor.

And now she’s taking the solo mission a step further by embarking on her first tour as well and she’s admittedly a little freaked out.

“Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore and truthfully, it’s just a little terrifying," she says. "But if I know anything, it’s that there’s no safer place (besides at home with my dog) than to be in a room, on a stage, in front of the people who I’ve grown up singing my lungs out for."

"The first run of shows is going to be hot, sweaty and intimate," she continues. "My brand-newly-formed band and I will be playing rooms that Paramore outgrew a decade ago. It’s going to be so satisfying to feel the energy of a crowd that close again, especially while performing songs that feel so vital for me."

Tickets go on sale on Friday, March 13th and her album Petals for Armor arrives May 8th.
