Paramore, Tegan & Sara Get In on Music Cruise Trend with Parahoy!
By Annie Reuter
The members of Paramore announced today (Aug. 22) that they’ll be breaking in to the music cruise trend — previously reserved for older, washed-up types (pun intended) — with a four-day concert cruise aptly dubbed Parahoy!
From March 7 to 11, 2014, Paramore and Tegan and Sara, along with more TBA performers, will sail from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. The four-day trip to paradise (get it?) will include a Q&A and two concerts on the pool deck by Paramore, as well as other “activities” with each member of the band and dozens of shows from the rest of the lineup.
Paramore joins a slew of artists before them who have hosted their own musical cruises, most recently including Weezer and Matchbox Twenty. Then there’s the Ultimate Prog Cruise, which features Yes and Queensryche, and the EDM cruise with Skrillex, Diplo, Zedd and Disclosure. Even The Beatles had a cruise named in their honor, though it was unofficial.
Before Paramore hits the open seas, the pop-punk trio will be embarking on its Self-Titled Tour, even after a full spring and summer of touring following the April release of Paramore. Complete dates below.
