    After MUCH sadness my November trip to Manchester U.K. to visit my bf and see The Darkness was canceled do to the auto accident I was in ,in October :(

    However, Rock gods were on my side and The Darkness decided to tour North America and Canada !!!

    The Darkness' "Christmas Time" single was the #1 rock single this past week in the UK, a solid 8 years after it was released. A fine way to end their reunion year. ;)

    Here's a live performance of it from just a little bit ago. They do a great job. :grinthumb

    Howdy there Darklings. New news from Darkness HQ.

    Firstly, the first new song from the Darkness since their reunion, "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us"



    Aaaaaand you can download said new song at their site for free. Music – The Darkness I Don't think it's the best song but it's new, free and I see it entirely as a quick little promotional song.


    Also during the Superbowl tonight the Darkness made a boom in a big way with their signature song...









    And THAT lead to THIS...

    Hate to break it to The Fray....but they can suck it. :D

    Ed and Frankie were sooo on too..and adorable !! I love every second

    the highlight was Justin got on a roadies shoulders road him around playing a solo in A Thing Called Love..I was in the balcony and he was face to face with me for 5 mins playing ! :pullhair: I ALMOST fainted lol ..not kidding..

    I blew him a kiss..he mocked catching it before he road off among the rest ..It was a fun time. So interactive with the crowd. It was sold out..we rocked that place..

    gawd, still recovering..worth it ! I LOVE them !!!

    It was AWESOME Metal..they put on the BEST show..they sounded perfect..I am waiting for the new album. They tease us with clips..the tour seems to be going really well for them..with that cheeky Super Bowl advert..that should boost some new interest. According to the last check , A Thing Called Love , is 1# on the download charts !

    Good for them..I hope they realize how many loyal fans they DO have here..they were worried if people would remember them..I know all the northeast venues were SOLD OUT Boston, Nyc, Phillie..TOTALLY cool !

    I wasn't sure what expect from them musically but I can assure you, they sound brilliant..really impressed that the qualtity has upgraded in fact ..better !
    I hope Justin stays clean ..no drugs etc...touring must have alot temptations ..
    He shows HOW much he can do with his brother Frankie and Ed..

    Fun time :D
