Paramore have cancelled the final two shows of their North American Tour due to illness.
Paramore had previously postponed several shows on the tour in support of their This Is Why album due to illness within the touring party, including frontwoman Hayley Williams.
Williams and team played two rescheduled concerts in San Francisco and Seattle earlier this week but announced that the band will not be able to appear for the remaining two shows at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland on Thursday and at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City on Sunday.
“Hey everybody, we just got off stage in Seattle. After speaking with our team and my doc, I know that trying to finish this tour is now going to come at a detriment to my health,” Williams wrote on her Instagram Stories.
“My lungs are just not healing quickly enough to keep up. It got a little scary tonight,” said the 34-year-old musician, who earlier admitted that touring is different at 34 than it was at 16.
“We will have the team post an official statement ASAP but we are going to have to cancel the last 2 shows of the tour so I can get better finally. I know some of you are camping in Portland already so I just wanted to get this out there,” she added.
