The Darkness began in Lowestoft, Suffolk in the year 2000.
Three years later they would rise to stardom with their debut CD, “Permission to land,” which contained the hit single, “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”.It was certified quadruple platinum in the U.K, with sales of almost 1.5 Million, and won three Brit Awards: Best British Album, Best British Group, and Best British Rock Act.
Fast forward to 2018.
Current members: Justin Hawkins (lead vocals, guitar), Dan Hawkins (guitar), Frankie Poullain (bass) and Rufus Tiger Taylor (drums).
In support of their 2017 release “Pinewood Smile,” released by Cooking Vinyl ,The Darkness gives us “Tour de Prance.”
The Truman, Kansas City’s newest HOT SPOT, was host to this Explosive stage show.
Justin Hawkins takes us back to the day when METAL was FUN.
With his animal print body suit, up beat heavy riffs, and a “We Rule” Attitude, he dominated the stage.
Frankie Poullains Bass skills are amazing. He was stealthy on stage, but his trend setting style made an impression.
With his guitar skills equally matched by his vocals, brother Dan Hawkins.
Skins by TAYLOR, Rufus Tiger Taylor.
Kansas City fans were off their feat, bouncing all night long.
