The Darkness Announce 34-Date 2022 North American Tour

British rock icons The Darkness have announced an extended 34-date North American Motorheart Tour that will take the hard-rocking quartet across nearly all North American points starting with a West Coast run on March 9 in San Diego as they work the tour east, wrapping up on April 24 in Boston. The tour comes in support of the band’s seventh studio album Motorheart that was released on November 19 by U.K.-based record label Cooking Vinyl.  The tour will take the British rockers to both U.S. and Canadian fans of the longtime band who waited patiently as The Darkness shelved tour plans in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Concergoers will now be able to experience again the band’s signature memorable, high-adrenaline spectacular rock shows that fans have come to expect from them. The Dead Daisies will provide support on all dates.

“You there, in the Americas – hear me, and hear me well: The Darkness know your pain, know that you have cried yourselves to sleep every night, bereft of quality English rock music. Well, desist from weeping and pull up your fully grown adult pants – salvation is upon you!” – states Justin Hawkins

The Darkness formed in 2000 in Lowestoft, England, and are comprised of brothers Justin Hawkins (lead vocals, lead guitar) and Dan Hawkins (rhythm guitar, backing vocals) and Frankie Poullain (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Rufus Tiger Taylor (drums, backing vocals). The band has toured with Queen, Guns N’ Roses, Lady Gaga, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, KISS and Ed Sheeran.
