”I feel like we can’t really practice enough to make the perfect show, and the perfect show to me is one that fills up the room and also makes the room feel like the biggest one you’ve ever been in, but also the smallest. To me, you can’t practice that. It’s a connection and it happens every night or it doesn’t happen every night. For me, on this tour and with the fans that have been with us all along, and the fans that we’re sort of recruiting this year, that connection’s been there this whole time, and I’m super thankful for that, because it’s not anything that we can do. Like, we can put on the best show that we’ve ever, ever played, but if we aren’t concerned with connecting with people — every single person in the room who has their own story and their living their own lives, and when they talk out the door at the end of the night, they’re going back to reality — if we can’t connect with them by the time they leave and do that? Then we’ve failed. It doesn’t matter if we have the biggest light show, or lasers, or if I’m flying around the room. That stuff comes and goes. We might be doing arenas today and tomorrow we might back at The End, but if we can’t connect with people, we’re not getting the job done and that’s really what makes Paramore shows so special. That’s our number one priority every night.” Hayley Williams.
