Hayley Williams is ready to dominate the stage again. The lead singer of Paramore, 34, recently cancelled four tour dates with the band due to underlying health issues, which she has now opened up about in a letter to the band’s fans.
Taking to her Instagram Story, the Mississippi native, who recently collaborated with Taylor Swift on re-releasing her album Speak Now, revealed the news: “As you know, we postponed a handful of dates due to illness.
We kick back up Saturday in Tulsa (!!!) after a week of misery, sadness, and bellyfuls of antibiotics and steroids.” READ MORE: Hayley Williams Breaks Up A Fight At Paramore Concert In Toronto: ‘What Do You Guys Think This Is?’ With a dash of humour interjected in her fan address, the “Misery Business” songstress added: “For the record, we did not have food poisoning or a band-wide s**t fest.” The cancelled shows included San Francisco, Seattle, Portland and Salt Lake City stops.
Williams described passing on those dates as “really tough.” The Grammy winner shared that the spawn of her sickness began in Houston, but her sheer adrenaline pushed her to complete her show in LA, finally revealing that by the end of the performance, her “body just gave out.” Pointing out how tour life has changed for the star over the years, she succinctly stated: “Touring is different at 34 than it was at 16, when leaving home felt like the greatest escape.” READ MORE: Paramore Bandmates Hayley Williams And Taylor York Confirm They’re Dating “At this age, I have my own home life, a community, a dog, my sisters and the rest of my family who are getting older.
