Hayley Williams is currently touring with Paramore and Fall Out Boy on the Monumentour. The summer tour has been going great for both bands that have been playing for large crowds all over the country.

If you haven’t gone to the show in person, then you may not be aware of just how much running around Hayley Williams does on stage. Always dressed in the appropriate attire, Hayley Williams runs around on stage and up slides to sing to the crowds. While she makes it all look effortless, Hayley Williams admitted to Rolling Stone in an Aug. 1 report that she is starting to accept that she isn’t as young as she used to be!

Speaking to the publication, the lead singer of Paramore said, “I'm starting to accept that 25 is not 16. Seven or eight years ago, we would go to Taco Bell, grab a bean burrito and run onstage. Now, getting ready for a show takes two hours.”

Hayley Williams admits that she has to stretch prior to performing and added, “I'm loving it, but I definitely might collapse at one of these shows.”

The crowds that flock to see Paramore are also loving the Monumentour which kicked off earlier this summer. Although there was a time when the fate of the band was uncertain, they have regrouped, now as a trio, and are back to scoring hits. Likewise, Fall Out Boy went on a four-year hiatus, but came back onto the scene last year with their new album “Save Rock and Roll.” Many of their new songs are incorporated into their Monumentour set which gives fans a chance to hear their new stuff, but they haven’t forgot about the old! Like Paramore, Fall Out Boy still play some of their favorite songs from their earlier albums.
