Paramore is currently treking across the U.S. on their After Laughter ‘Tour 5’ in support of their latest record, After Laughter, with special guests Foster The People and Soccermommy. Tonight in Brooklyn, NY at the Barclays Center Arena Paramore brought out a special guest for their smash hit song “Misery Business,” from their 2007 album, Riot.
Each night of every Paramore tour, fans get excited for the band to perform “Misery Business” as they bring a fan up on stage to finish out the song with them. However, tonight they brought out Stranger Things actor, Gaten Matarazzo who plays Dustin in the show, along with his sister Sabrina and brother Carmen to finish the song with them. Matarazzo has performed the Paramore single “Misery Business” on tour with his band Work In Progress earlier this year, which cause a spark across the internet.
Hayley Williams noticed the Matarazzo’s band Work In Progress cover, and invited them to play onstage with them via Twitter, which Gaten agreed to almost immediately. Williams then sent over their 2018 touring schedule to Gaten, so that he could choose a date to attend. Williams tweeted, “dear @GatenM123, @itstayloryall & i saw your band’s Miz Biz cover and all i can say is: \m/ open invite to crash a pmore stage and thrash those luscious locks around (& harmonize, obv) whenever the spirit (of rock) leads you.” and Gaten instantly responded saying, “Dude!! Yesss!!!! Let’s make this happen! Thanks.” The collaborative efforts then came together in Brooklyn, NY.
Check out some fan shot footage from the show below:
