Paramore to Cast Its Spell on Indonesia

Paramore’s devout followers in Indonesia can now unleash their excitement live for the Tennessee alternative rock band as it has booked gigs in two cities here.

“We are coming to see you August 17 in Bali and August 19 in Jakarta. We’re really excited. Can’t wait! So stay tune and wait for us in Indonesia,” they said in a YouTube announcement. (Check out the youtube video HERE)

The band skipped this country last year when they toured Southeast Asia with stops in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Manila. But in August, the band will visit in between gigs in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Paramore is expected to play songs from their latest album “Brand New Eyes” (2009), with fan-favorite single “The Only Exception” from the platinum record.

Paramore will perform with its new, smaller formation, with Hayley Williams on vocals, Jeremy Davis on bass and Taylor York on guitar.

Paramore, whose name is originated from the word paramour, meaning lover, has released three studio albums during their seven-year run in the music industry, with their second album “Riot!” putting them in the spotlight.

The first single off that album “Misery Business” was the one that brought the band to the top of the charts and led to exposure in Rolling Stone magazine.

Bali Concert: Aug. 17, Garuda Wisnu Kencana, Rp 400,000 (Festival B) and Rp 600,000 (Festival A)
Jakarta Concert: Aug. 19, Carnaval Beach, Ancol, Rp 500,000 (Festival B) and Rp 700,000 (Festival A)
