THE DARKNESS RISE AGAIN! The Darkness Tickets

After having to cancel three shows, because of illness, it's all go again for the band of the moment...

THE DARKNESS RISE AGAIN!
The Darkness have confirmed their UK tour will resume in LONDON at the CARLING HAMMERSMITH APOLLO tonight (October 22).

The band were forced to pull out of gigs in Liverpool (18), Folkestone (20) and Portsmouth (21) after singer Justin Hawkins got a throat infection.

Writing on the band’s official website over the weekend, Justin explained what happened with regards to his throat. He said: "I would like to offer my sincerest apologies for what happened last night - it's the first time we've ever had to pull a show and nobody could be more disappointed than me.

"I've often felt a little hoarse of a morning, but usually my hour-long pre-show warm-up blows away the cobwebs. Yesterday was different, and I didn't realise how serious the problem was until around 8.30pm when my voice disappeared altogether.

"A doctor was called and the first thing he noticed was that one of my glands was swollen, and arranged for me to see Liverpool's finest ENT consultant immediately, so I was driven to the hospital.

"Liverpool's finest ENT consultant found that I have laryngitis AND an infection in my voicebox, I have swollen vocal chords and a troublesome node which is (worryingly) causing mischief.

"If it were as simple as a sore throat, the ENT consultant could have administered an injection to reduce the swelling and the show would have gone ahead, but sadly that could not happen last night.

"I'm really sorry that the cancellation could not be announced earlier, but the injection possibility was not ruled out until well beyond our scheduled stage time. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me."

The Liverpool show has been rearranged for December 11.
