Paramore have just announced a massive UK arena tour next year, and they’re set to stop off right here in Manchester.

Following a hugely-successful return to the road in the US earlier this year, the three-piece American rock band has just announced a tour across the UK and Ireland in 2023 in support of their sixth studio album This is Why – which is set to be released on 23 February 2023.

Kicking off in Dublin in April, the band will then make stops in Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, London and Birmingham for their first UK tour in over four years.

The chart-topping band will be supported on the tour with special guest Bloc Party.

A portion of ticket sales for all UK and Ireland shows will be donated to Support + Feed – which is a global initiative to shift to an equitable, plant-based food system to combat food insecurity and the climate crisis.

The band says they are also excited to work with environmental nonprofit REVERB on their 2023 tour to create positive impacts for people and the planet, and in addition to partnering on what is being called a comprehensive tour sustainability program, the band and REVERB will also host an Eco-Village.


This means that on every UK tour date, fans can take action on important environmental and social causes and much more.
