Fan Reacts to Live Performance of All I Want

Lead singer Haley Williams had the crowd enraptured by her clear vocals and exuberant spirit. In a moment of assertiveness, the singer called out two fans whose fight disrupted the show. The band paused in the middle of playing the song Figure 8 as Hayley kicked the two out. Paramore has been adamant in the past about the safety of their fans during concerts. “Both of you need to find somewhere else to take care of that shit because that’s not happening here.”, Williams shouted from the stage. The band then resumed the show, taking Figure 8 from the top.

To the fans pleasant surprise, Lil Uzi Vert appeared with his fresh take on Paramore’s Misery Business. The rapper has been a long time fan of the band and even stated that his dream collaboration was Haley Williams. “There’s no one better than Haley Williams”, he told Complex.
