With over three million concert tickets sold worldwide, four Top Ten albums, two hundred million streams on Spotify, five Top Ten singles and numerous industry awards and having toured with giants including Queen, Guns N’ Roses, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard & KISS, The Darkness are one of the most successful rock bands of the modern era
Many of The Darkness’ biggest songs are now staples of rock radio, sharing airtime with songs by their genetic forerunners, Queen, T-Rex and Cheap Trick.
Justin Hawkins says of their imminent return, “Our last ill fated Antipodean excursion in 2020 was cruelly truncated. We’ve spent 2.5 years deflated. Our appetite for Rock has largely gone unsated. Well, for too long you have waited, to witness the atmosphere created, in the Uk, Ireland, Canada and the Unite Stated, by us, Rock’s most underrated. and I am truly elated to announce that we shall return in October to deliver our solid gold plated ROCK – see you there!”
