One Way Ticket
The group sold more than 100,000 tickets on its last outing in late 2004 and they’ll look to do the same this time around, with a dozen dates booked from February 4-21.
The tour starts in Dublin, Ireland, and includes a two-night stand at London’s Alexandra Palace.
It’s the band’s first tour with bassist Richie Edwards, who replaced Frankie Poullain in June. Edwards is no stranger to the road, having served as The Darkness’ guitar tech for the last couple of years.
Fans can expect a healthy dose of tunes from the band’s new album. One Way Ticket To Hell … And Back, the follow-up to 2003’s Permission To Land, is slated for a November release.
A press statement describes the disc as an “every-song-a-classic album.”
“We are all really looking forward to getting back out there and playing live to our fans,” Justin said. “It will be great to air the new album and new bass player, Richie Edwards, as well as some of our older classics.”
