The Darkness - Limelight Belfast 2017

The Darkness announce headline Limelight show

UK rock band The Darkness are pleased to announce a return to Belfast headlining the Limelight 1 on Sunday October 15th 2017. The band have recently announced their fifth studio album release, due September 2017.

The Darkness first exploded onto the international music scene with their landmark debut, Permission to Land back in 2003. Their most recent LP, Last of Our Kind was issued in 2015 and reached No. 1 on the U.K. Rock chart, and No. 2 on the U.S. Hard Rock chart.

The Darkness are a UK rock band currently seeking out an existence on the periphery of the world music scene. Surrounded by a team of highly paid professional technicians, our heroes battle irrelevance in obscurity, paying themselves a meagre minimum wage so as to keep it real. The Darkness’ live performances have become legendary.  Or mythological.

“The absence of an official live DVD means you have to witness a show first hand before you are entitled to slag it off. Then, and only then, may you slag it off. I wager you won’t, because the Darkness will make you shit in your pants, in a good way. I should know. I’m the singer.” – Justin Hawkins.
