UTG PHOTOS: Paramore (11/21/13)

Under The Gun Review sent photographer, Corbin Alvae, to Paramore’s ‘Self Titled Tour’ at The Palace in Auburn Hills, MI.

Hello again, readers! Oh do I have some cool things in store for you. So first off, for me to be able to shoot Paramore was a dream come true. I’ve been a huge fan of them since my days in middle school, so being able to do this was awesome! One other thing, and this is the first time it’s happened in awhile, but it freaking rained again! It’s November, Michigan, bring the snow now! Anyway, the show itself was brilliant! As soon as those lights went out, screaming fans just erupted in the venue. The group came out and they were ready to get down and melt faces. Vocalist Hayley Williams was her usual energetic, fun-filled self and everyone was just going nuts.

The group played a variety of tracks, from old to new, including earlier efforts such as “That’s What You Get,” “Crushcrushcrush” and “Misery Business.” Now, what made “Misery Business” super special was that Hayley invited one fan to come up and sing the third chorus with her and the band. Newer tracks such as “Grow Up,” “Still Into You,” and “Ain’t It Fun” were also played. Again, the band did something super cool; during “Ain’t It Fun” they welcomed the Rochester High School choir to the stage to sing with them, definitely making some kids’ dreams come true.

Overall, Paramore did an absolutely phenomenal job. The variety of tracks, the featuring of young students on stage, it just shows that Paramore is a band that likes to do things differently in their live performance and add some new fun for everyone to enjoy, and they certainly did a great job at doing that.

On that note, something for everyone to take in: it doesn’t matter how old or how young you are, if you like what you do — whether you write music, photograph bands, draw, do web design, or anything else — if you truly believe in yourself and push your limits and not let anything get in your way, you can achieve and do anything you want. Just be patient and have dedication, ’cause you never know, I could be shooting next to one of you upcoming photographers in the future. Just remember, keep believing and work hard, cause in the end, it really does pay off.

Now, for your enjoyment, here are my photos I captured of the talented group.
