British classic rockers The Darkness will be spreading their Easter Is Cancelled message across the Antipodes with an Australian and New Zealand headline tour in March 2020. On a mission to lead us to the sunlit uplands of inclusivity, togetherness and rock’ n’ roll fellowship, the band will play shows in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Auckland.

These performances promise to be incredibly special, reflecting the grand scope and vision from the band’s new album Easter Is Cancelled, alongside epic live favourites such as I Believe In A Thing Called Love and Love Is Only A Feeling from their spectacular canon of hits (I hope they play Bald – increasingly follically-challenged Ed)..

The Darkness have also released today a new single Heart Explodes, taken from their jaw-droppingly ambitious quasi-sci-fi concept album. Heart Explodes is an almighty mini-rock opera, which finds The Darkness baring all in a multitude of heartfelt emotions reflecting the hardships, struggles and changing relationships of life.
