Paramore’s 2023 Australia and New Zealand tour dates are:
Saturday 18 – Spark Arena – Auckland, New Zealand
Wednesday 22 – Brisbane Entertainment Centre – Brisbane, Australia
Saturday 25 – The Domain – Sydney, Australia
Monday 27 – Rod Laver Arena – Melbourne, Sydney
The tour dates come after the band began teasing shows in Australia and New Zealand. On June 19, Hayley Williams and co. took to Twitter to tease a tour announcement, with a simple post reading “6.27 – g’day” and a link to a Paramore Down Under website.
Paramore last toured Australia and New Zealand in 2018, as part of their ‘Tour Four’ world tour, in support of the ‘After Laughter’ album. During that tour, Paramore performed also across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland.
Paramore most recently released their sixth album ‘This Is Why’ in February. The record scored a five-star review from NME‘s Sophie Williams, who wrote: “With some of their most fearless songwriting to date,‘This Is Why’ is a bold reminder of how limitless Paramore can be.”
