A Letter About Tonight's Cancelled Show in Dallas

  • 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. 

    Love,
    Hayley

Dear Haley, I hope that you are back to 100% but I am really disappointed in you. I can not believe that you have yet to announce a make up date for your cancelled show in Dallas. Your fans who spent hundreds of Dollars on VIP tickets, drove hours to get to the arena, then had to stand in the pouring rain just to hear the announcer say that you had cancelled your show due to illness deserve more then a blog! I realize that you were sick but you could have saved everyone a lot of time and money by cancelling your show sooner then an hour before the concert was set to start. I understand that performers can get sick and shows do get cancelled at times, but there needs to be a change when it comes to the refund policy on tickets when there are multiple head liners and one of the performers cancels. I would have NEVER paid $1,000.00 for 4 VIP tickets to go see Fall Out Boys perform their only good song in the pouring rain. I am really not mad at you for cancelling the show. I am more mad at the venue for not cancelling the entire concert when they noticed how bad the weather got not to mention, that one of the head liners had already cancelled the show. They put thousands of peoples safety at risk. At least, we could have got the entire show rescheduled for a different date or received a full refund. But what do they care. They already received their money for the show and they can deny Paramore fans any sort of a refund since Fall Out Boys played an extended set list. What about the people who came to the concert just for Paramore and could care less about the Fall Out Boys? What about your hardcore fans who were there for you when you were just getting started, playing small venues? Please do not let us down by not making up the cancelled show in Dallas. Again, I hope you are feeling much better but DO NOT FORGET YOUR DALLAS FANS. We didn't buy tickets to see Fall Out Boys. We bought tickets and stood in the pouring rain to see you!

Get well soon Haley. I'm sorry for all those who missed out. I know it stinks but I know the band really love their fans they treat them like gold and I'm sure Haley could just not sing to cancel. That being said let me know guys if you hear of a make up date can't wait to see them in Texas.

Hayley thank you for taking the time to send this letter - you get well and we will see ya'll in Texas soon. For the people posting on here that are disappointed their lil 13 yr. old didn't see Paramore please get a life. Turn on the news and pick a country - there are millions of kids around the world that would love to trade places w/ your lil one. God speed Hayley!

What an ignorant comment! The disappointment is due to the fact that those people paid for something which they did not receive and will not get their money back. You obviously, could not afford to go to this concert otherwise, you would be disappointed too. For those of us who spend a lot of money to see Paramore and realized once we arrived at the venue that the show was cancelled, then yes DISAPPOINTED is an understatement!

Corpus Christi show was a disater the fans didn't even know what was happening for 2 hours. The new politics music video kept replaying during that time. We were all confused about what was happening. The moved around the set a lot until one of the promoters came out with a letter from hayley saying he couldn't come out because she was sick.He then said if anyone wants a refund go to the ticket booth within 30 minutes. Some people did end up leaving I couldn't because we had drivin 2 hours for this concert. It was a huge mood killer then to have fallout boy come out after that.. but maybe paramore will be able to make it up to us in corpus..Hope she feela better xo

I am using my daughter' account for this post. She too was crushed when the meet and greet was canceled and then the performance. She has been to a couple of other concerts but did not win meet and greet. This was her opportunity to meet Paramore in our home city. While greatly disappointed, she is most concerned with Hayley's health. I will pray for her as she requested and hope that they return to Corpus Christi soon.

Wow how did she win meet and greet? That's awesome! I hope she can still meet them when they come back. Notice I said when, looking forward to it. Huge fan I have been praying for Hayley. I hope she is well by now.

Hayley get well soon. Much prayers and well wishes to a speedy recovery. I know a lot of people are disappointed about Paramore's cancellation. I have no doubt that you guys will make up for those two shows. What's really important in the whole scheme of things is that your well and that you get your health back 100%. Keep your head up and keep rocking this world with your kick ass music!!!!!

I'm glad you're getting better. I was saddened that after getting excited to see you guys again in less than a year's time frame (after the self-titled tour visit in October last year), and after hyping up one of my best friends because I was able to buy her a ticket to join me and my girlfriend in seeing y'all, that we were confronted with the unfortunate news of your illness. Nonetheless, we all still had a grand old time. The torrential rain actually made it better due to the camaraderie that was enhanced as a result. I'll be looking for future Dallas show dates, for sure. And I'll pray you finish healing quickly.

In the grand scheme of things, it's your overall health that matters. Get well and God bless! <3
