Farro To Miss Paramore Tour
PARAMORE guitarist JOSH FARRO is to miss the band's upcoming tour, so he can plan his wedding.
The newly-engaged rocker has chosen to skip a string of dates in order to stay at home in Tennessee and begin organising his nuptials with fiancee Jenna.
He will be replaced Paramore guitarist Taylor York's brother Justin.
In a post on Paramore's website, Farro writes, "As weird as it is to stay behind, I need to take some time off to plan the wedding and everything. Because of that I will not be joining the guys on the Pacific rim tour coming up.
"The band has been extremely supportive and gracious to me about all of this which has made it a lot easier. Justin York will be filling in for me as a favor. He's an awesome dude, you all will love him.
"Trust me, I know it's strange having someone 'fill in' for me. I don't like it anymore than you guys do, but this is the most important thing in the world to me and I trust you all will understand. The Lord has blessed me with the most amazing woman and for that I am eternally grateful."
The star ends his note by assuring fans the hiatus isn't permanent, adding, "I will be back soon! Don't worry! I shall see you all very soon."
The Misery Business hitmakers are due to play a handful of shows in Japan beginning later this week (10Feb10), before making stops in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
