Once in a lifetime a band of pure style and rock’n roll come to Earth to shake up and entertain us to the max. The Darkness is a mix of different components that become a bright cannon ball of great joy. Great music? Check! Long, stylish hair? Check! Terrific taste of clothing? Check! Uplifting lyrics about love and adventures, youthful spirit, absolutely brilliant sense of humour? Triple check!
Listening and watching The Darkness is the best gift you can give yourself on Christmas. And they become better and better with years going by. The legendary Roundhouse venue fitted their style perfectly. The set was split in two segments – first: songs from the latest album and second: the most well known songs. Their performance ended with oh so fitting Christmas song. During one of their songs Justin Hawking – the band’s original and charismatic front man – stood up on his hands and started clapping with his legs. After this acrobatic number he sung and played guitar as if nothing happened without missing a note. The Darkness in certainly an act that should not be missed when playing live.
