Multi-platinum UK rock icons The Darkness will be returning to Australia & New Zealand this October, playing shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland & Wellington.
Brimming with their trademark blazing guitar riffs and solos, soaring falsetto and immeasurable rock ‘n’ roll extravagance, The Darkness will be operating at their loosest and most extroverted frequency.
Fans will be treated to new songs from the band’s new album Motorheart, along with slaying their award-winning, platinum-selling hit singles including I Believe in a Thing Called Love and Love Is Only A Feeling– a true spectacle to behold.
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 and 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.
Mainman 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 United States, 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!”
