Never miss another 'The Darkness' show
The Darkness + LostAlone + The River 68's
The Darkness have announced plans to head out on a new tour this winter.
Ten years has now passed since The Darkness' rock-based masterpiece "Permission To Land" and its massive hit single "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" were dropped upon an unsuspecting public.
Deeply unfashionable at the time and sticking out like a sore thumb in the age of The Strokes et al, the sheer naked ambition of The Darkness, along with their huge choruses and confident stage show, drew disapproving glances from the 'cool' media but connected with fun-starved music lovers and gig-going audiences in an unprecedented manner, propelling The Darkness to the toppermost of the poppermost with a chart-obliterating album and sold out shows across the globe.

This event takes place at O2 Academy Leicester, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The Darkness exploded into the public consciousness for both their unique brand of glammed-up rock and outrageous stage costumes when their debut album 'Permission To Land' shot to number one, spawning new rock anthems including 'Love Is Only A Feeling', 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love' and 'Growing On Me'. It was also the fastest selling debut album by a British band in America since The Spice Girls. Four albums later, the band are still flamboyantly rocking, now joined by new drummer Emily Dolan Davies who replaces Ed Graham.
