After revealing in March that they’d be announcing a UK and
Ireland leg of their Permission To Land 20 world tour, The Darkness have made good on
that promise and officially unveiled a nine-date headline run.
Celebrating two decades of their brilliant 2003 debut album, the
band will be hitting Belfast, Dublin, Norwich, London, Glasgow, Manchester,
Bristol, Nottingham and Wolverhampton this December.
“We, The Darkness, are delighted to announce that we’ll be
hitting the road in the UK once again,” announces frontman Justin Hawkins. “To
commemorate the 20th anniversary of Permission To Land, our set will include
every song from our debut album faithfully reproduced – with additional clam
notes and meanderings – in the order in which they appear on the record.
“We’ll also play all of your favourite Darkness songs from the
rest of our illustrious and tipsy turvy career. It will be the best show you’ll
see this year. I should know, I’m the singer and also a YouTube music expert.”
Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 7 at 9am.
