"The After Laughter Tours" were a series of tours by Paramore, in support of their fifth album After Laughter (2017), that began on May 10, 2017, in Nashville, Tennessee, and concluded on September 7, 2018, in Nashville, Tennessee.

This was the first touring cycle since 2010 to feature drummer Zac Farro, who left the band on December 18, 2010, and rejoined on February 2, 2017.

Background[]

On April 19, 2017, Paramore released "Hard Times" as the lead single from their fifth studio album, After Laughter, and on the same day announced European tour dates. On May 3, 2017, the band released "Told You So" as a single in the UK, acting as the second single from their fifth studio album. The full release of the album followed on May 12, 2017. The same day they also announced the 3rd Parahoy! Cruise, and on May 15, 2017, they announced North American tour dates. On November 17, 2017, the band released "Fake Happy" as their third single off After Laughter. On February 5, 2018, the band released their fourth single off After Laughter, "Rose-Colored Boy". And finally, on June 26, 2018, Paramore released their fifth and final single off the album, "Caught in the Middle."

The first set of tour dates was announced as "Tour One" on April 19, 2017, with the band touring intimate venues in Europe. Parahoy! Cruise was announced on May 12, 2017, coinciding with the release of After Laughter. The second set of tour dates was announced as "Tour Two" on May 15, 2017, touring intimate venues in North America. Due to Hurrican Irma, the band had to reschedule the Orlando and Miami dates for December 5 and 6, 2017. The third set of tour dates was announced as "Tour Three" on August 25, 2017, touring arenas in Europe. The fourth set of tour dates was announced as "Tour Four" on November 7, 2017, touring arenas in Oceania, Asia, and Hawaii. Due to Williams getting sick, the Jakarta and Manila dates were rescheduled. The fifth and final set of tour dates were announced on March 8, 2018, as "Tour Five" and was officially called The After Laughter Summer Tour with Foster The People.

The band announced the final show of the After Laughter era on June 26, 2018. The show is called Art + Friends and happened in Nashville, Tennessee on September 7, 2018. The band has described it as "a celebration of Nashville music, art, and community." Paramore performed a headline show, with support from bands COIN, Bully, Nightingail, and artists Liza Anne and Canon Blue.

A review of the Mountain View performance stated: "From Williams encouraging the unity of fans in her speeches to the whole band exuding raw emotion in its performance, the band has truly mastered the art of audience connection."
