Paramore‘s tour plans for this summer are finalized. Hayley Williams and her boisterous boys, who we last saw recieving the Hard Rock Artist of the Year award, kick off a slew of North American summer dates with a performance at Milwaukee’s Summerfest on June 30 and will work in two dates opening for John Mayer. And no, we don’t quite understand why.
After wrapping up a European stint and a handful of Warped Tour appearances, the Riot!-makers will make their way across North America with opening acts Jack’s Mannequin, Phantom Planet, and Paper Trail before ending their sojourn on Aug. 30 in Wallingford, Connecticut.
In addition to this already busy schedule, the group will be making appearances at Seattle’s Bumbershoot festival and Baltimore’s Virgin Festival 2008, as well as those two to-be-announced dates supporting Mayer.
Can you imagine a duet between Hayley and John on “Your Body Is a Wonderland”? No, we can’t either.
