After being forced to cancel the first day of the festival due to severe weather conditions, emo and pop punk mega-fest When We Were Young finally kicked off yesterday, Sunday October 23, at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds after over nine months of build-up and hype. 

One of the headliners of this year's lineup were none other than Paramore, fresh off officially announcing their comeback with well-received new single This Is Why, taken from the album of the same name, which will be out out February 10 via Atlantic.

Playing a career-spanning, twelve-song set, the emo icons delighted the Las Vegas crowd by opening their show with a live debut for fan-favourite track All I Wanted, taken from 2009 album Brand New Eyes.

You can watch fan-filmed footage of the track being played for the first time below.

Paramore are currently midway through a North American tour, with a UK and Ireland tour coming next year.
