Paramore to play album release concert at Nashville's Opry House

So "This Is Why" Paramore's recently announced 2023 tour didn't include a date in their hometown.

Before they hit the road, the Franklin-born, Nashville-based rock giants will take the stage at Nashville's Grand OIe Opry House on Feb. 6. It's billed as a celebration for the impending release of their sixth album, "This Is Why," which arrives Feb. 10.

Fans have until 10 p.m. Tuesday to register for a presale that will be held Thursday, Dec. 8, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday. You can find more information at and

This will be the band's first concert in Nashville in nearly five years. They wrapped up touring for their previous album, "After Laughter," with their own mini music festival "Art and Friends" at Municipal Auditorium in 2018.

The 4,000-seat Opry House will be one of the more intimate venues Paramore plays in 2023. After headlining the emo nostalgia fest When We Were Young in Las Vegas this past October, the band is leaping back up to arenas for their trek across the U.S., U.K. and South America. They're also headlining the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest in Phoenix on Feb. 9.

Bonnaroo diehards have also noted a curious gap in the band's schedule that would put them in our neck of the woods when the festival returns June 15-18.
