Paramore debut "Thick Skull" live Auckland, New Zealand

20 November 2023, 13:21 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

Paramore are currently on an arena tour across New Zealand and Australia. At the Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand, they played "Thick Skull" for the first time.

Their show in New Zealand marked the band's return to the stage following their North American tour, which ended early due to Hayley Williams suffering from a lung infection.

Alongside live staples such as "Rose Coloured Boy", "The Only Exception", "That's What You Get", and "Misery Business", Paramore gave "Thick Skull" its live debut. The song is the final track on their sixth studio album, This Is Why.

Julien Baker shared her own version of the track on Paramore's remix album, Re: This Is Why, which was released earlier this year, and features reinterpretations of songs on the band's latest album from Wet Leg, Romy, Foals, The Linda Lindas, and even Remi Wolf, who is the opener for the dates on Paramore's Australian/New Zealand dates.

Paramore recently announced the tenth anniversary vinyl reissue of their self-titled album. Pre-orders are available on their website, with the item shipping on 5 January.
