As we mentioned not too long ago, Saturday Night Live is opening their Twitter and Facebook accounts up once a month to take fan suggestions about who should host and perform on the show, and today’s the day! It’s finally October’s Suggestion Day!
To suggest that SNL have Paramore on as a musical guest this season, you can either send a tweet to @nbcsnl with the hashtag #SNLMusic and the name of the band OR you can head over to their Suggestion Day post on Facebook and leave a comment telling them why you think Paramore should be on the show. Or you can do both – we’re certainly not stopping you from doing that too.
Let’s spread the word and make sure SNL knows that the whole world wants to see Paramore on the show! Tweet and comment to them as often as you want. Make this count cause it’s the only chance we get until sometime next month! Let’s show them what the Paramore Family is made of!
PF’s very own Ross McClenaghan has written an article for Big Cheese Magazine detailing his experiences at Paramore’s shows in Belfast, Edinburgh, and Leeds this past August! If you weren’t able to make it to the shows, check it out. It’s a great read and, seeing as it’s from a fan’s point of view, will surely psych you up for Paramore’s next tour.
The issue is out now and is available at newsstands and retailers in the UK! Outside of the UK? No worries! You can buy a copy HERE!
You can also check out scans of the article, thanks to our friends at Paramore Online HERE!
Saturday Night Live has recently announced on their website that they will be opening up their Facebook and Twitter accounts once a month so that fans can tell them who they want to see on upcoming episodes of the show. September’s suggestion day has already passed, but October is coming up fast, so it’s time for the Paramore community to team up and let Saturday Night Live know that we want to see Paramore on their show!
Here’s the official statement from SNL:
“Hey everybody! We’ve been noticing a lot of our followers on Facebook and Twitter have been suggesting performers they think would make great hosts and musical guests for our show. And some of the suggestions have been so amazing that we here in the web world want to keep better track of what you’re saying so that we can pass it along to our producers. So once a month we’ll chose a day and open the floor to your suggestions on Facebook and Twitter. If you’re on Facebook, you can simply leave a comment on our “Suggestion” post and if you’re on Twitter, tweet us your suggestion on the designated day with the hash tag #SNLHost or #SNLMusic. And please, stick to the designated days. It will make your suggestions so much easier to track and keep our feeds open on “non-suggestion” days to other interactions with all you wonderful people. Thanks! Can’t wait to hear from you all!”
For anyone who isn’t familiar with Saturday Night Live, it is an extremely popular and well-known late-night live sketch comedy show in America–having started the careers of stars like Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, Adam Sandler, and SO many more–and it is currently on its 38th season! It is an honor for anyone to host or perform on the show, and we think Paramore are way overdue for their chance.
October’s suggestion date is not known yet and won’t be announced until right before it happens, but please spread the word to all the Paramore fans you know, and make sure they’re ready. We’ll be posting as soon as we know the date so that we can make sure SNL knows we want Paramore on their show!!

Over the years, we’ve seen fellow fans all over the place looking for a master list of every Paramore show ever. It’s something we’ve always wanted to do, but it seemed almost impossible… until now! With the help of some great people in Paramore’s camp,and several months of hard work, we are finally able to provide fans with a complete list of every show Paramore has ever played – in order and separated by year for easier viewing!
Without further ado, we present you with the Past Tour Dates section!
**A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped with this in any way! We couldn’t do this without you!**
