American rock trio Paramore are returning to Manila after five years.
Promoter MMI Live confirmed today the band will be performing on Sunday, February 18 at Mall of Asia Arena as part of Tour Four, or the Australia-Asia leg of the world tour supporting their LP After Laughter.
While the Manila date isn’t on the official Tour Four poster the Grammy-winning act shared on social media this morning, we can take this as a good sign. They may or may not be waiting to release the Asia version when more dates are confirmed.
Tickets are PHP1,325 / 1,855 / 2,756 / 4,876 / 6,890 and 8,000, going on sale through SM Tickets and hotline 02-470-2222 starting November 23.
After Laughter is Paramore’s fifth studio album. It was released in May as a followup to 2013’s self-titled album and is their first one since the departure of founding bassist Jeremy Davis two years ago. The album also marks the return of drummer Zac Farro who originally left the band in 2010 with his brother and guitarist Josh.
The record debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200 and has been hailed one of the best albums of 2017 by the likes of The Guardian, Rolling Stone and Alternative Press. Here’s its lead single, “Hard Times”.
