HAYLEY WILLIAMS Announces First Ever Solo Tour
The “Petals For Armor Tour” is set to kick off this May.
Following the announcement of her solo debut album, PETALS FOR ARMOR, out on May 8th, Hayley Williams has now confirmed details of her eagerly awaited first solo tour. The “Petals For Armor Tour” UK & Europe and US tour, which begins on May 13th in the Netherlands, will come to London’s Electric Brixton on May 16th. In addition, Hayley will also be performing at The Great Escape Festival on May 15th.
Wow. I am going on tour. Myself. It’s not Paramore and truthfully, it’s just a little terrifying. But if I know anything, it’s that there’s no safer place (besides at home with my dog) than to be in a room, on a stage, in front of the people who I’ve grown up singing my lungs out for. There was a time I thought I wouldn’t tour Petals For Armor. What a joke. I must.
This is a brand new adventure. It’s important to embark on something new every now and then just to show yourself that you can. I welcome the discomfort and the joy and I’m ready to be present for this.
The first run of shows is going to be hot, sweaty, and intimate. My brand-newly-formed band and I will be playing rooms that Paramore outgrew a decade ago. It’s going to be so satisfying to feel the energy of a crowd that close again, especially while performing songs that feel so vital for me; songs I have never performed before for an audience.
Thank you for the chance to tour this. I hope to see a ton of old friends and make some new ones too.
Pre-sale for Hayley’s London show begins at 10am on Wednesday March 11th with general sale commencing at the same time on Friday March 13th via Hayley’s official website.
