The Darkness to Start UK Tour at Liverpool O2 Academy

Famous disappearing rockers The Darkness have come out of erm.. the darkness and are touring the UK this coming winter opening in Liverpool at the O2 Academy on Tues 8th November 2011

Following this week’s triumphant intimate warm-up shows (the roof of Shepherd’s Bush Empire was reportedly eventually found floating in Chelsea Harbour in the early hours of the morning), and the band’s full-blown main stage ‘comeback’ show at this year’s Download Festival, The Darkness make their return to touring with an extensive UK run in November 2011.

When the band released their debut album ‘Permission To Land’ in 2003 they exploded into the UK’s consciousness with a fresh and exciting sound, look and attitude. Playing every show as if they were headlining Wembley Stadium they embraced the classic rock sounds of the 70’s and 80’s and gave it a unique updated sound for the new millennium. Countless chart hits followed, 3 Brit Awards, millions of albums sales and sold out tours before they called it a day in 2006. This tour will feature the original line-up of Justin Hawkins, Dan Hawkins, Frankie Poullain, Ed Graham for the first time since 2005.

After Download this weekend the band will play several European festivals before returning to concentrate on finishing their third album … do hold your breath!
