The Darkness Announce 2022 North American Tour

They'll be playing across Canada in March and April of next year

The Darkness have announced a 2022 North American tour in support of this year's Motorheart that'll see them playing in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario with Nashville's the Dead Deads coming along for the ride. 

The tour kicks off on March 9 in San Diego before wrapping up in Boston on April 24. Between those dates, the band will be hitting up Vancouver's Vogue Theatre on March 20 and Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre on April 19. 

In a statement about the tour, the Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins said:

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! As doctors, we UNDERSTAND the healing power of rock music and we have instructed our minions to make arrangements for us to visit your moderately distant shores. 

The cryogenically sealed Tupperware box of roadies has been set to 'Thor' and the mighty winged chariot has been dusted off. Remember — one lick of Darkness sweat and you will be cured — you will literally walk again, without Covid or anything! But what price freedom and eternal life, I hear you ask? To you sir, about thirty bucks (plus local taxes and booking fee). Now get the fuck in!

Tickets for the tour go on sale December 13 at 10 a.m. local time here. Check out the full tour itinerary below.
