A new day and a new concert announced that I have to buy tickets for … The Darkness!

The Darkness are a UK rock band currently eeking out an existence on the periphery of the world music scene. Surrounded by a team of highly paid professional technicians, our heroes battle irrelevance in obscurity, paying themselves a meagre minimum wage so as to keep it real.

The Darkness’ live performances have become legendary. Or mythological.

The absence of an official live DVD means you have to witness a show first hand before you are entitled to slag it off. Then, and only then, may you slag it off. I wager you won’t, because the Darkness will make you shit in your pants, in a good way.

I should know. I’m the singer.

On the strength of the Serpent Rings album and having not seen them in about 4 tours, I’m in :+1:
A good way to end the Edinburgh debauchery :wink:

Envious :pensive:.

I’m resigned to the fact that I will never get the opportunity to see them live again. I actually asked my buddy Bob :wink: whether they would do shows in the US and he said ‘probably not’.

Therefore the one and only time I saw them was at a small gig in Milton Keynes back in ‘86 :+1:

Lucky so 'n so. I feel like I’ve been punished since I came back in the south of France. No bands that I listen to do ever come to tour around here. Paris if your lucky but most of 'em don’t even bother playing in France. They do dozens of dates in Poland or Germany though :pensive: and UK of course. So unless I get my ass over to the UK like I’ll do twice this March or have done in the past, I’m condemned to never see anyone, it sucks!

I just bought tickets to a show by “a Nightwish cover band”, which certainly will be an actual Nightwish gig under an alias. It’s on the date when the new album is released and there is no information anywhere about this so called Nevski & The Prospects. :grin:

RUSSIA’S MOST POPULAR NIGHTWISH COVER BAND TO PLAY AT THE RELEASE PARTY FOR THE NEW NIGHTWISH ALBUM AT CLUB TEATRIA, OULU

To celebrate the release of the new studio album by Nightwish on April 10th, 2020, a release party will be held at Club Teatria, Oulu. ”Nightwish have played the venue in the past, so now that we have this new club and Nightwish have a new album coming out, we thought we’d have a party. A friend of a friend even managed to get an excellent cover band from St. Petersburg to play at the event. It’s going to be one hell of a party!” comments promoter Marco Järvenpää, also known for organizing the Jalometalli festival.

The tickets will be available on Monday 20th of January at 9am. You can get the tickets from Ticketmaster.fi

How do you people hear about the gigs coming up apart from the obvious artist by artist search on internet, announcement on their own FB page or whatever? Do you subscribe to alerts from specialised websites? Seems I miss lots of them even though I think I’m looking everywhere.
Looking inside Classic Rock or Prog Rock magazine was a piece of cake but I don’t have access to them anymore and couldn’t find anything on the magazine’s website.
