The band recently completed their UK arena tour in support of 2017 album 'After Laughter'.

Hayley Williams has responded on Twitter to a Paramore fan who attended the group's recent Manchester show after being injured in the attacks at the MEN Arena venue in 2017.

Twitter user jay posted an emotional message online, thanking the band for their performance, marking the first concert they had attended since the attack at an Ariana Grande show at the city's venue in May last year.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed multiple fatalities and injuries, including young children, after a bomb exploded in the concert venue foyer at around 10.30pm on May 22nd.

Hayley saw the message and responded with a few words of support for jay:

Paramore also performed the song '26' during their Manchester set, an acoustic ballad taken from their latest record After Laughter, which united the whole crowd in song and even featured a spontaneous moment of silence, the emotional weight of the moment clearly not lost on the band members.
