A permanent fixture of the alternative rock scene since 2004, the Tennessee pop-punk band Paramore have of late managed to break into mainstream music.

For over a decade front girl Hayley Williams has wowed dedicated crowds with her ever-changing hair colour, emo-inspired lyrics and enthusiastic charisma on hits such as ‘Ain’t It Fun’ and ‘Ignorance’.

The band shot to fame in 2005, drawing inspiration from major influences ranging from No Doubt to Jimmy Eat World.

Ex-original guitarist Zac Farro is rumoured to be rejoining the line-up in time for the performance, following his departure in 2010 due to disagreements regarding the direction of the band.

Attendees can look forward to popular classic hits coupled with new releases from their fifth studio album, ‘After Laughter’.
