The Franklin, Tennessee-based band Paramore was formed by three members: brothers Zac and Josh Farro, and Hayley Williams. At the age of 13, Williams moved from her hometown of Meridian, Mississippi to the Nashville suburb, where she met the brothers. In the next few years, Paramore would begin to perform at venues outside the greater Nashville area, including the concert festivals Purple Door and Warped Tour. In April 2005, after being seen only once by a record executive for the music label Fueled by Ramen, the band was offered a contract to produce a major market CD.

Paramore's first United States headlining tour kicked off on August 2, 2006, leading them across the country and ending with a hometown show in Nashville, Tennessee. They also toured the United Kingdom from October 5, 2006 to October 15, 2006, where they ended in London at The Mean Fiddler.
