The Darkness @ Palace Theatre, 08/05/2012

Nothing says "nostalgia" like a good ol reunion tour, and we (Australia) certainly have had quite a few of those over the past few years, haven't we? When this tour was announced I must admit I did, for a brief second, question exactly whether I really still would enjoy the ridiculously overblown rock extravaganza that is The Darkness, then I thought, "Hell, I'm not gonna get another chance" and bought a ticket almost immediately. Well, this could not have been a more fun evening. The UK rock gods were in absolutely top form - Justin sounded fantastic, every song off Permission to Land made it in, new tunes sounded great, what more could you ask for? Sometimes music just ain't meant to be taken too seriously.

Sound quality isn't so great unfortunately. You'll need to turn it up.
