The Darkness

The Darkness have revealed a mass of new live dates the size of a small planet, quite apt given each and every one of said dates will find the “rock-based music band” playing each and every track on their 2003 LP ‘Permission To Land’, which has its tenth anniversary this year. Unbelievable.

The so-called ‘Outreach Programme’ will take Justin Hawkins to various ‘intimate’ and distant enclaves – like sites in Bath, Cardiff, Brighton and Belfast, none of which I’ve heard of.

So distant, in fact, that the following may not even appear on maps:

17 Nov: Cardiff, Coal Exchange
19 Nov: Buckley, Tivoli
