Hayley Williams quits Paramore show as fans fight – ‘Jail for all!’

Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams said a Canadian audience made her “act like a teacher” when she intervened in an audience member’s argument from the stage.

Currently on tour in North AmericaParamore were performing at Toronto music venue History on Monday (November 7) when the fight broke out and Williams stepped in.

Footage of the incident subsequently surfaced on social media.

Watch the video at the bottom of this post.

“Everyone okay?” Williams asks the audience after she stopped Paramore’s performance of their 2018 After Laughter single “Caught in the Middle”.

“Alright, are we having a match?” she continued, who Higher reported, before adding: “Oh, man. What do you think this is — like a Terror show?”

Williams goes on to add, “We’re not a hardcore band, bro. We’re gonna dance tonight, we’re gonna have fun.”

Then she joked, “You got me up here acting like a teacher. Detention for all!”

Several other rock artists have also had to stop their recent performances, often to curb crowd violence. Examples this year include Pearl Jam, Shine down, The cult, ARROW and even a country star Luke Bryanwho joked that his show “ain’t Limp Bizkit or nothing.”

In September, Paramore released their first new song in five years, “This is why.” Paramore’s sixth studio album, also called This is why, arriving Feb. 10, 2023.
