Hayley Williams and Paramore Make Long-Awaited Return To The Stage At California Club Date

After almost a year away from the concert stage, singer Hayley Williams and a revamped version of the Tennessee band Paramore rocked a packed Fox Theatre in Pomona, California, earlier this week.

According to a Rolling Stone report, Willams and band members Taylor York (guitar) and Jeremy Davis (bass) were backed by three touring musicians, making up for the absence of brothers Josh and Zac Farro, who acrimoniously left Paramore at the end of 2010.

Packing 18 songs into a 90-minute set, the band rocked through songs from all three of their studio albums, as well as newer tunes like “In the Mourning” and “Monster,” the latter track being Paramore’s contribution to the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack. During fan favorite “Pressure,” York and Davis even pulled off an impressive “pressure flip,” much to the delight of the crowd.

Here’s a complete set list from the show. Click here to watch videos for nearly every song.

‘Brick by Boring Brick’
‘Born For This’
‘For A Pessimist, I’m Pretty Optimistic’
‘That’s What You Get’
‘In The Mourning’
‘The Only Exception’
‘Looking Up’

‘Misery Business’

Paramore is prepping to open for goth-rock legends the Cure at England’s Reading and Leeds Festivals on August 24-25.
