Over the past few days, Paramore has been touring across the United States, and an unfortunate incident occurred during their show in Salt Lake City on October 4.

WARNING: This article contains topics about assault and violence.

The band stated on their official Twitter account regarding an incident involving a concertgoer and other fans who attended their show at the Great Saltair in Magna, Utah.

They wrote:

“We were made aware of an incident that happened in the crowd while we were on stage.”

A man allegedly assaulted several women and an engaged couple while performing their hit songs.

Fortunately, the incident alerted the security team and venue staff, prompting them to restrain and kick the unknown person out of the venue.

According to Paramore, they didn’t realize there was an assault in the crowd because it was out of sight from where they were on stage.

The band clarified that if they had witnessed the incident, they would have halted the performance until it was resolved.

They added:

“PARAMORE DOES NOT CONDONE violence, homophobia, or bigotry of any kind. It is supremely unwelcome in our community and has no place at our shows.”

Offering their apologies to fans who attended the show that evening, the band said they were sorry for those who witnessed the unfortunate encounter and promised to do everything possible to protect their fans and make them feel celebrated.

It is unclear whether the man was charged or detained by police as of this writing.

In other tour news, Paramore performed at the Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, California, for their first tour show.

Fans were taken aback when frontwoman Hayley Williams announced that the band would perform “Misery Business,” which had been “canceled” a few years ago.

After receiving backlash for its misogynist lyrics, Paramore announced in 2018 that they would no longer perform the song. They made a significant decision because the band felt it was time to move away from the song.

The vocalist said during the concert that they didn’t know “five minutes after I got canceled for saying” a specific word, but TikTok decided that it was fine.
