Paramore – Gig Review

Friday 27th September 2013
Capital Arena, Nottingham

Following the release of their 4th studio album, Paramore head out on tour and stop off at the Capital FM Arena, Nottingham for some fun. Their self-titled album is quite possibly their most varied yet, and gives us a taste of a band that has strengthened over the years and packs a more mature sound. It’s been almost a decade since the band formed, so it was anticipating waiting to see what was in store.

Hayley took to the stage and the night was opened with “Grow Up” and “Fast In My Car” both tracks from the new album. The night was filled with a mixture of tracks from the new album, and the classics punched out in between. Hayley also performed Decode, which was released as a soundtrack to the Twilight film.

We were treated to a couple of interludes, such as “I’m Not Angry Anymore” and they played homage to Fleetwood Mac performing in London the same night with “Landslide”.

There’s many a review that will boast about how much more amazing it is seeing a band live, and that really is the case with Paramore. Hayley is extremely talented and she has a belter of a voice; it really doesn’t compare to listening to the CDs at home.

It was an energetic evening, and brilliant to be part of such a loyal audience, who took in every single moment with the band and sang along to every line so perfectly. The set came to a close with Misery Business, and Hayley even pulled a lucky fan up on to the stage to join her on the mic.
