The 26-city trek will wrap on July 24th in Morrison, CO at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre. A special guest will also be added to the tour and announced soon.

The band also previously announced the third installment of their hugely popular PARAHOY! vacation experience, an interactive four-day festival at sea presented in partnership with Sixthman Productions and Norwegian Cruise Lines. The cruise – a full charter aboard the spectacular Norwegian Jade – will feature a specially selected schedule of bands, activities, and truly unique Paramore live performances. PARAHOY! sails roundtrip from Miami, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas from April 6th through 10th, 2018 and the boat is completely sold out.

The 2018 summer amphitheater and arena tour is in celebration of their acclaimed fifth studio album After Laughter, which was released May 2017 through Fueled by Ramen. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen and Paramore’s own Taylor York, After Laughter hit number one on Billboard’s U.S. Top Alternative Albums chart and the U.S. Top Rock Albums chart. It was also included on several Best Album of the Year lists in 2017 including Billboard, NME, NPR, Rolling Stone and more. The album featured smash hits “Hard Times,” “Told You So,” “Fake Happy” and most recently, “Rose-Colored Boy” which was released on February 5th along with their retro morning-news themed music video, which currently has over 3.7 million views.

Foster The People most recently wrapped a world tour in support of their third studio album Sacred Hearts Club. The album released July 2, 2017 and featured hit songs including “Pay the Man”, “Doing It for the Money”, “SHC,” and “Sit Next To Me.” The band also played a slew of festivals last summer and fall including Lollapalooza, Meadows Music and Arts Festival and Austin City Limits.
