DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN

The latex rockers will be supported by local heroes ASH...

THE DARKNESS are set to round off their headlining slots at the Carling Weekend at Reading and Leeds festival with a huge outdoor show in Belfast.

The band will play on August 30 in the city’s Botanic Gardens. The show is part of the Tennents ViTal 04 series of gigs and comes less than a week after The White Stripes play the same outdoor arena (August 25). Local heroes Ash will be special guests at the Darkness show.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (June 25).
