Paramore canceled the last two dates of the current leg of their tour, due to singer Hayley Williams’ health. She has been fighting a lung infection that also caused cancellations of some earlier dates. 

The singer posted on an Instagram story:

Hey everybody, we just got off stage in Seattle. After speaking with our team and my doc, I know that trying to finish this tour is now going to come at a detriment to my health. My lungs are just not healing quickly enough to keep up. It got a little scary tonight.

We will have the team post an official statement ASAP but we are going to have to cancel the last 2 shows of the tour so I can get better, finally. I know some of you are camping in Portland already so I just wanted to get this out there.

I’m so sorry for all the chaos this has caused some of you. I really tried to kick this shit. Love you all.

Paramore also published on their Instagram:

After my lung infection forced us to postpone 4 shows, I was hoping a week off of performing and a strict medicine routine would allow my body to heal enough to finish off this tour strong.

I have been doing everything I can to fight this infection so we wouldn’t have to disappoint anyone with more news of postponement and cancelations. After struggling through the last few shows and consulting with my doctor, we’re unfortunately realizing that it’s past the point of wanting to push through to put on a good show for all of you. I’m now risking long term damage and I need to pay attention to my body. With that in mind and with a heavy heart, we have to cancel our remaining shows in both Portland and Salt Lake City.
