Well THE DARKNESS fans are standing up and putting their hands in their pocket as the first Melbourne Show on Wednesday 3rd May at 170 Russell, Melbourne sold out in less than 30 minutes!! We are now able to announce a second and final Melbourne show on Friday 5th May @170 Russell, Melbourne (18+). Tickets for this show are ON SALE NOW! Just go to:

Frontman Justin Hawkins recently announced their tour: Rejoice, Australians fair, in your home which you so rightly claim to be girt by sea – THE DARKNESS are quite simply thrilled to be returning to your shores!

Those lovely people at Groovin The Moo festival have realised that there is simply NOT ENOUGH ROCK on your otherwise wonderful island, and have tasked us with saving YOU from inferior musical stylings.

Besides leading the stellar festival line up at GTM, we also gift you headline shows in all of Australia’s favourite cities, showcasing our trademark mix of relentless rifferama, effortless haute couture, ridiculously loud noises and bright things that flash on and off.

Ask any fool – a DARKNESS show is a place where believers come together, where fluids are shared, and dreams are built. But most importantly, where rock and roll is crowned king EVERY NIGHT! Come one, come all…
