The English glam rock formation The Darkness became world famous overnight in 2003 with their hard rock anthem 'I Believe in a Thing Called Love' from the album 'Permission to Land'. In 2023, we are exactly two decades later and The Darkness is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of this legendary album this year and of course they are doing so in Melkweg!
Permission to Land
After the success of their debut album 'Permission to Land', things certainly did not remain quiet around the band. Several albums followed with various feel-good classic rock and glam rock classics. With the latest achievement being 'Motorheart' from 2021.
A personal message from Justin Hawkins about this tour:
“When Permission to Land landed, twenty short years ago, we were bathed in shock and awe. As if by magic, Rock wasn't dead! Fun wasn't banned! And Spandex was almost acceptable again…
Well, guess what? Twenty years on, the same rules apply. So please to squeeze yourselves into those inappropriate leggings, back-comb your mullet, splash on a big handful of attitude, and come celebrate with us! We promise everything and we deliver, every time. Bring on the next twenty!
The Darkness. The best. For you. Forever.”
