CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF PERMISSION TO LAND ACROSS SYDNEY, MELBOURNE & BRISBANE!

Get ready and prepare to rock! Multi-platinum UK rock royalty The Darkness are returning to Australia in February 2024 to perform three very special “Let There Be Rock” events in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne celebrating the band’s 20th anniversary of Permission to Land.

The classic debut album which delivered iconic songs such as “I Believe in A Thing Called Love” and “Love Is Only A Feeling” will be performed live, in its entirety, for fans plus a string of album B-sides and rarities.

Igniting the mainstream rock scene like a meteor of sonic brilliance back in the early 2000s, The Darkness, known for their trademark falsetto, spandex, guitar riffs and extravagant mind-blowing live shows will be supported by one of Australia’s finest in rock, You Am I with their phenomenal “The Majesty of Tap” Spinal Tap tribute show plus Aussie gems DZ Deathrays, Cry Club, DJ’s Eleven & Denim coming along for the ride.

Following their sold out Motorheart tour across Australia and New Zealand in 2022, The Darkness couldn’t leave us waiting too long for another dose of their outrageous rock ‘n’ roll antics with irrepressible frontman Justin Hawkins reflecting on the anniversary of their debut album with fondness; “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 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 have set countless stages ablaze across the globe with millions of ecstatic fans, four mighty Top Ten albums, an astounding 400 million Spotify streams, and an awe-inspiring arsenal of five Top Ten singles along with sharing hallowed ground with legends like Queen, Guns N’ Roses, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, and the immortal KISS. In an era where the heartbeat of rock has taken new forms, The Darkness emerged as the blazing phoenix, etching their name as one of the unquestionable rock gods of our modern chronicle.

Fans can expect the full rock show experience when “Let There Be Rock” rolls into town – don’t miss out on getting your tickets early before these shows sell out.

Stay tuned for more tour news soon for the rest of Australia & New Zealand!
