Paramore warmed up for their forthcoming UK arena tour with an intimate gig at London's Roundhouse as part of this month's iTunes Festival last night (September 4).

The Tennessee trio will begin a six-date UK arena jaunt later this month as part of a full European run, but first treated a packed Roundhouse to 90-minute, 21-song set, which focused heavily on their recently released self-titled album.

Kicking off with 'Grow Up', the band played 11 of 17 tracks from their new LP across the set, including recent single 'Now' and the record's three ukulele-based interludes.

As well as this, the trio also aired fan favourites 'That’s What You Get' and 'Crushcrushcrush' from their second record 'Riot', four tracks from their 2009 album 'Brand New Eyes', and 'Pressure', the solitary outing from their debut album 'All We Know Is Falling'.

Sporting a new bob haircut in her trademark deep red, singer Hayley Williams referenced the fact that the show was being filmed throughout, jokingly saying at one point, "We could be playing in front of millions of people who don't know our songs right, which is their loss."

She also spoke about the band's much publicised difficulties, which saw founding members Josh Farro and Zac Farro leave the group in late 2010, telling the crowd: "We've been through some stupid stuff. Some ups and downs, some low valleys. If we're up here playing new songs from a new record right now, then you know you can get through anything."

Paramore also included a short cover of Fleetwood Mac’s 'Landslide' in the middle of their much-loved ballad 'The Only Exception'. They finished their set with a riotous version of recent single 'Still Into You' before letting off confetti cannons.

Paramore played:

'Grow Up'
'Fast In My Car'
'That's What You Get'
'Decode'
'Ignorance'
'Interlude: I'm Not Angry Anymore'
'Now'
'Daydreaming'
'When It Rains'
'Last Hope'
'Brick By Boring Brick'
'Interlude: Holiday'
'Crushcrushcrush'
'Ain't It Fun'
'The Only Exception'
'In The Mourning'/'Landslide'
'Pressure'
'Misery Business'
'Part II'
'Interlude: Moving On'
'Still Into You'
