Paramore stopped a fight at their gig in Toronto this week (November 7), with Hayley Williams saying, “Detention for everyone”, regarding those involved.

The band, who will release new album ‘This Is Why’ in February, are currently midway through an intimate comeback tour of North America and played the city’s History venue on Monday.

During the show Williams noticed a disturbance in the crowd and asked her bandmates to stop playing. “Everybody OK?” Williams asks the crowd in footage shared online. “OK, we got a fight?

“Oh, man. What do you guys think this is, like a Terror show?” Williams went on, adding: “We’re not a hardcore band, bro. We’re gonna dance tonight and have fun.”

“You got me up here acting like a teacher. Detention for everyone!” the singer added, before demanding that she “better not have to do that again”.
