Paramore Donates Portion of Ticket Sales to Abortion Organizations


A portion of the profit from Paramore’s upcoming fall tour will be donated to charities providing reproductive and abortion services.
The band expressed their outrage at the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court. Paramore has decided to donate $1 of every ticket sold for their fall 2022 tour to the ARC Southeast, as well as give $1 of every ticket sold towards the Kansas Abortion Fund and Women’s Shelters Canada.

The group’s North American tour, which supports their fifth album, After Laughter, is their first since 2018. It begins in California on October 2 and ends in St. Augustine, Florida, on November 16. They also will make an appearance on November 19 at the Corona Capital Festival in Mexico City.

The band announced earlier this year that the next album has already begun production. Singer Hayley Williams also released two solo albums in the five years, Petals for Armor in 2020 and Flowers for Vases/ Descansos in 2021.
