UK: Suffolk rockers The Darkness set to tour with Lady Gaga

SUFFOLK glam-rockers The Darkness have scored a huge coup after being chosen to support Lady Gaga on part of her world tour.

Famous for donning outrageous catsuits, the band will be performing on the European leg of the tour – called the Born This Way Ball.

The reformed band – brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins, Frankie Poullain and Ed Graham – exploded onto the music scene with their number one album Permission to Land which spawned new rock anthems including Love is Only a Feeling, I Believe in a Thing Called Love and Growing on Me.

The Darkness, from Lowestoft, won three Brit Awards in 2004 but split two years later when frontman Justin Hawkins quit.

Lady Gaga will be performing at London’s Twickenham Stadium on September 8 and at Manchester Arena on September 11.
