Paramore's Reading Festival Set Hit by Power Outage

Paramore's headlining performance at Reading Festival earlier today (August 22nd) was hit by a power outage after the speakers blew, leaving the band in silence for 15 minutes.

The Tennessee trio were half way into their set when the power went out. While sound engineers tried to resolve the issue, vocalist Hayley Williams entertained the crowd by leading a Mexican wave and theatrically miming a tantrum.

When the power was restored, Paramore performed a stripped down version of "The Only Exception." After nearly 20 minutes, the power finally came back on.
