"Tonight you are Scotland and let me tell you something else, tonight, you are Paramore" Hayley Williams proclaimed to a loud and enthusiastic crowd. It was nearing the end of a fantastic night and Paramore did not disappoint.  

The set list was a mix of classics and new material from their latest album 'After Laughter'. The lead single from the album, 'Hard Times', was mashed with 'Heart of Glass' by Blondie. 'Ignorance', 'Still into You' and 'Grow Up' were particularly well-received by fans.  

The 'Misery Business' tradition continued with Williams pulling up four people to perform alongside her. It is always the highlight of the show with fans vying for a spot on the stage. 

As usual on the 'After Laughter ' tour they covered a song by drummer Zac Farro's band HalfNoise. Williams and Farro's synchronised dance routine for 'French Class' has been a favourite for the entire tour, and had fans bopping along with them. 

The ever enthusiastic Scottish crowd chanted the traditional "here we go" which was remixed by Farro. Later he boldly stated, after much deliberation, that Scotland was his favourite place to play. 

They closed the show with ‘Rose-Colored Boy/I Wanna Dance with Somebody’. Williams (and her massive hair) engrossed fans as she bounced around the stage with the same energy she had 90 minutes ago. Meanwhile guitarist Taylor York’s riffs ensured everyone was singing and dancing as the night came to an end. 

Paramore stunned their audience with a fantastic show, which brings Tour Three to a close. No doubt they will be back soon as they left fans wanting more.
