It's happening!

Hayley Williams dropped the news on Thursday (March 5) that she is heading out on her very first solo tour this summer (catch me in line at the venue already)!

The Paramore singer took to social media to announce a 17-date North American tour in support of her debut solo album, Petals For Armor.

“I crave INTIMACY. these are small shows - i’ve been wanting to do this for a long time,” she wrote on Instagram along with the dates. She'll also be heading overseas to the UK and Europe. 

Arlo Parks will be supporting Williams on tour in the US and The Ninth Wave will open overseas. 

Before her album comes out, Williams dropped an incredible five-song collection, called Petals For Armor I , as well as music videos for a handful of the songs including “Simmer,” “Leave It Alone,” and “Cinnamon.”

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Williams opened up about her solo endeavor and how therapy helped bring the new music to life as well as not wanting to become a cliché. “I came close to stifling my creative process because I didn’t want to live up to those expectations of what it looks like when a female leaves a band and makes a project on her own,” she explained. 

Tickets for the tour go on sale next week and fans can access ticket pre-sale by ordering Petals For Armor — out May 8.
