The Darkness return to North America – Announce LA (2/19) and SF (2/21) shows
“Darklings of the new world… we’re coming to get you!” The Darkness have announced North American tour dates for their reunion tour and they will be coming to California in February. They will play the House of Blues in Hollywood 2/19 and the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco 2/21. After exploding into rock stardon with their 2003 debut Permission to Land (featuring “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”), The Darkness quickly gained notoriety for their classic rock influences, guitar riffs, and elaborate stage performances. The band began to fall apart after the release of their second album, 2005’s One Way Ticket to Hell … And Back (which is an underappreciated record), and Frontman Justin Hawkins left the band in 2006. The Darkness has not played in North American since, and here is your chance to see them in two amazing venues! Ticket information and more after the jump.
The Darkness return all original members including Justin Hawkins (lead vocals, guitar), his brother Dan Hawkins (guitar, backing vocals), Frankie Poullain (bass, backing vocals) and Ed Graham (drums). The Darkness announced their reunion this March and played their first live shows in over 5 years in June. They will be showcasing older material, including the entirety of the debut album Permission to Land, as well as songs from their forthcoming 3rd studio album.
