Author: | Posted in UK No comments

British band The Darkness are gearing up to bring some glamorous rock music to Belfast as they confirm the band’s return to Limelight next year.

The four-piece glam-rock band, consisting of brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins, Frankie Pollain and drummer Rufus Taylor, will play at the famous Belfast venue on February 28, 2022.

The concert will align nicely with the release of their upcoming album Motorheart in November, which has recently released their new single, Nobody Can See Me Cry.

The band last played Limelight in November 2019; that means it takes a while for local fans to take another look at the 80s-inspired rock band.

The concert at Limelight 1 will be part of their UK-wide tour, and the band will also play two nights in Glasgow, Cardiff and London’s O2 at Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Talking about the tour, Justin Hawkins said, “Come and party with us like it’s the last order in the last chance hall. Maybe, but I don’t want to comment further on this.

“Join the guys, Darkness you know and love, plus British Lion – Steve Harris’ top rock band.


The group will play Belfast’s Limelight 1 on February 28.

“What a night. Delirium. Clothes, including hats. Denim that smells like hamsters. Who wouldn’t want that? See you ahead, connoisseurs of the best life has to offer.”

The producers of the I Believe In A Thing Called Love hit came to the fore in 2003 with the release of their debut album, Permission to Land.

Their most recent album, Easter Is Cancelled in 2019, became the band’s fourth Top 10 album in the UK, while also hitting #1 on the Official Charts Top 40 Rock Chart and iTunes Rock Chart.

Tickets for the concert at Belfast’s Limelight will go on sale Friday, September 24th at 10:00am and are available from
