Paramore has bailed on the iHeartRadio ALTer EGO festival January 13th in Anaheim.

The band released a statement which read: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Paramore can no longer attend and perform at iHeartRadio ALTer EGO. The band apologizes for any inconvenience.” The cancellation was reportedly due to a “scheduling conflict.”

Paramore has been touring in support of their sixth studio effort, “This Is Why.”

About a month ago, the band noted that they have “now fulfilled all label obligations (with Atlantic Records) and are effectively free agents. This has led to a level of uncertainty.” Then came the acknowledgement that “a chapter of the band’s career has come to a close” referring to their recording contract – not whether the band would continue.

Frontwoman Haley Williams also affirmed “they’re still going to be together, and they’re still going to keep having fun.”

On December 26th the band wiped their official website, Instagram and X accounts clean which raised concerns but actually the action had to do with the status of their contract with Atlantic Records.

Festival organizers were able to plug in Fall Out Boy to fill the Paramore slot.
