Britain’s beloved rock band The Darkness will be performing at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Sunday, Oct. 8 celebrating the 20th anniversary of their mutli-platinum, chart-topping debut album, “Permission to Land.”
Formed by singer/guitarist Justin Hawkins, guitarist Dan Hawkins, bassist Frankie Poullain and drummer Rufus Taylor, the band’s upcoming show promises to be a grand spectacle with the band playing the much-lauded, award-winning, foot-stomping, guitar-wailing, groove-making masterpiece in full.
“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,” said frontman Justin Hawkes. “Well, guess what? 20 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 20!”
In addition to “Permission to Land’s” splendid confection of rock brilliance, the band will pump out a bonus “Best of the Rest” set stuffed to the gills with all the hits and fan favorites from The Darkness’ six subsequent studio albums.
Tickets to The Darkness at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas will be available online on Friday, June 9 starting at $35. Artist presales begin Tuesday, June 6 at 12 p.m. PST with Live Nation and venue presales taking place the following day on Wednesday, June 7 at 10 a.m. PST.
