Flamboyant English hard rockers The Darkness have announced their first ever New Zealand tour – with shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in April 2017 - and they will be joined by Kiwi legends Push Push, reforming after 24 years!
Relive the classics from The Darkness' outstanding debut album, Permission To Land (2003) right through to their most recent album, Last Of Our Kind. Expect gems like "I Believe In A Thing Called Love", "Growing On Me", "Love Is Only A Feeling", "One Way Ticket" and much more. Looking forward to their first New Zealand tour aside from a short Big Day Out one-off show in 2004 - are Darkness brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins, Frankie Poullain (bass) and new drummer Rufus Taylor (son of Queen drummer Roger Taylor).
As a very special addition to the line-up, New Zealand’s own Push Push reform for their first shows after a 24 year-long break. The Kiwi legends – fronted by Mikey Havoc – will blast through the hits as well as unveil new material from their forthcoming EP, due out in the New Year. The explosive five-piece released their debut album in 1992, A Trillion Shades of Happy, which featured their #1 hit single "Trippin’", and pushed the group further up into New Zealand's singles chart with more hits such as "What My Baby Likes" and "Song 27".
