Paramore have hinted at their Reading And Leeds Festivals setlist as they returned to live action for the first time in almost a year this week.

The band played an intimate show at the Fox Theater in Pomona, California on Tuesday night (August 14) and played an 18-song set, which included no new material. They were backed by a touring guitarists Jon Howard and Justin York as well as AWOLNATION's Hayden Scott, who is filling in on drums.

The set drew heavily from the band's first two albums 'All We Know Is Falling' and 'Riot', with their four 2011 singles 'Renegade', 'Monster', 'In The Mourning' and 'Hello Cold World', which the band performed live for the first time ever.

Singer Hayley Williams also referenced the band's troubled two years, which has seen founding members Josh and Zac Farro leave, telling the packed crowd as she introduced 'Ignorance', "Our band has been a little bit of a soap opera since day one" and described the song as "a reminder of how it's never, ever going to be again."

Paramore play Reading And Leeds Festivals next weeked, appearing on the Main Stage at Reading on Friday (August 24) and at Leeds on Saturday (August 25). They will play before headliners The Cure.
