Paramore Postpone Shows Due to Hayley Williams' Laryngitis

Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams was upfront with the audience at the band's tour kick-off show in Pomona, California, earlier this week: she has laryngitis. (Read our full report from the show here: Paramore Rock Hayley Williams' Voice Away at Cali Tour Launch). She pushed her way through a set packed with songs from the band's new album, Brand New Eyes, but had to let the crowd sing lead on encore "Misery Business." And as a result, the band has opted to postpone their gigs from tonight through October 9th to let their singer's voice heal. Refunds are available at point of purchase, and the new slate of dates is below.

Over the past few days, Williams' Twitter has been blowing up with reports on her sore throat. "Naked Gun and chicken noodle soup," she reported on September 30th. "PS, I have never felt more support nor have I been more thankful for our fans. You have no idea how much your encouragement means to me," she added.
