Paramore Drop Out of iHeartRadio ALTer Ego Concert & Wipe Their Socials Clean

Paramore announced Thursday (Jan. 4) that they are dropping out of this year’s iHeartRadio ALTer EGO show “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

“The band apologizes for any inconvenience,” the group wrote in their statement on Instagram Stories, which you can read here.

Other than the statement on Stories, Paramore’s Instagram account has been wiped clean, leaving fans to speculate about what the “unforeseen circumstances” could be and how they might affect the future of the band.

In the meantime, Fall Out Boy will step in as a new addition to the lineup for the concert, taking place Jan. 13 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

“We are thrilled to join the 2024 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO lineup and celebrate our most recent album So Much (For) Stardust,” Fall Out Boy wrote in a press statement. “We are looking forward to closing out an incredible night of music in advance of our upcoming ‘So Much For (2our)Dust’ US concert run.”

FOB will join previously announced performers The 1975, The Black Keys, Thirty Seconds to Mars,  Bush, Sum 41, Yellowcard, lovelytheband and The Last Dinner Party. iHeartRadio ALTer EGO will be hosted by Woody of iHeartRadio ALT 98.7’s nationally syndicated The Woody Show.

Paramore released their sixth studio album, This Is Why, in February of last year, scoring their highest-charting album in nearly a decade with a No. 2 debut on the Billboard 200. The album was the band’s first since After Laughter was released in May 2017; it debuted and peaked at No. 6. The group’s last album to go higher was its self-titled 2013 release, which debuted at No. 1 on the April 27, 2013-dated list.
