Lowestoft’s prodigal sons The Darkness have lined up a humungous tour for this coming November and December.
Always an excellent live spectacle, the glam rock quartet will play a total of 17 shows kicking off at Southampton O2 Guildhall on Thursday 23rd November and wrapping up in a blaze of glory three weeks later on Thursday 14th December at Bristol Colston Hall.
Tickets to the tour go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 9am on Friday 31st March.
Singer and master orator Justin Hawkins said: “The Darkness is proud to return once again to the stages of our sceptered isle. We are here to confirm our reputation as the mightiest live band treading the boards in this saccharine age of music made by computers, millionaires and halfwits. Sometimes by all three! We will once again be showcasing our trademark mix of relentless rifferama, effortless haute couture, ridiculously loud noises and bright things that flash on and off.
“As any fool will tell you, a Darkness show is a place where believers come together, where fluids are shared, and dreams are built. But most importantly, where rock and roll is crowned king EVERY NIGHT!
“And as if that wasn’t enough, we have made a frankly stunning fifth album that will be unleashed on the world in September of this year by the lovely Cooking Vinyl people. Good times… so come one, come all!!”
