After postponing in February, American rock band Paramore has announced Aug. 25 as the new date for its concert at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE) hall in BSD, Tangerang, Banten.

“Finally! Can’t wait to hang out with you. Thanks for waiting,” read a post on the band's Twitter account on Wednesday.

The concert was initially scheduled for Feb. 16, but on that day, vocalist Hayley Williams announced the postponement on Facebook, saying she was “fighting a throat and upper-respiratory infection for the last two days”.
