Aircraft problems means Hayley Williams and co are running very late
Paramore are in danger of missing this year’s Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds Festivals – potentially making it two years running that they’ve canceled an appearance at the event.
NME.COM has learnt today (August 24) that the band’s appearance tomorrow is in doubt due problems with their flights from America to the UK. This follows the 2006 festival when the band had to cancel at the last minute because frontwoman Hayley Williams was ill.
Having just finished playing the American Vans Warped Tour, the band have had trouble getting a flight out of the country.
“The band were due to fly into the UK today, but after an airport closure in the US, they have been forced to change their flight schedule,” a spokesperson for the band told NME.COM
They added: “At this point, we cannot guarantee that Paramore will make their 12 noon slot on the main stage at Reading festival (tomorrow August 25), as the band may not be able to get on site in time. They land in London tomorrow morning, and we are trying our best to get them there on time.”
According to the spokesperson the band are currently in contact with the event’s organisers about moving their main stage slot. Their appearance at the Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival the following day (26) should not be effected.
