Poor Hayley Williams! Constant touring can do that to a person!
The Paramore front woman had quite a health scare while she was on tour with Fall Out Boy this past week!
A chest infection and general exhaustion forced the band to cancel their performance in Texas on August 4th and 5th.
So scary! But alas, Hayley, being the super trooper she is, promised fans she'd be back up and rockin' out when the band hits Albuquerque, New Mexico in a couple of days!
The rockstar wrote a personal message explaining her situation to her dear fans on the Paramore website:
Writing from my bunk to let you know that my doctor and my vocal coach have told me I can't play tonight either. I have a chest infection and … Something called "exhaustion". Ha.
Words in this tiny little message cannot begin to express my frustration, sadness, and overall loopiness (the latter is likely just from the cortisone and antibiotics…ugh.)
Corpus Christi, you've been on my mind since I woke up this afternoon and Dallas, you'll be on my mind the rest of the night. I absolutely hate canceling anything. Admitting defeat is a tough thing for this gal.
Anyway. Thanks for understanding as much as you can. Of course any frustration on your part is totally understandable. I'm thankful for all the get well soon's and all the love I've seen online. Big special thanks for FOB camp as well for helping by extending their set last night. We absolutely love being out here with those guys and their crew.
As for the rest of the tour. It is still on. Doctor thinks I'll be good to go in the next day and certainly before the next show.
Texas, the guys and I will be back to you as soon as we can.
Pray for me if you pray. Fist bump me if you don't.
Sending you happy thoughts, Hales!
Get lots of rest and drink orange juice! You'll be better in no time!
