The Darkness Announce Lady Gaga Dates

The Darkness have announced dates for their trek on Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way Ball' Tour' for Summer 2012.

Invited by Gaga herself, The Darkness will provide main support for the dates across Europe. Before joining Lady Gaga, The Darkness return to Australia for the first time in six years (their Melbourne show sold out within an hour this past Friday). Next, they'll head to the U.S. in May for select dates as well as three festival appearances: Saturday, May 19 at InfieldFest (Baltimore, MD), Sunday, May 20 at Rock On The Range (Columbus, OH) and Saturday, May 26 at Rocklahoma. They'll perform festivals across the U.K. and Europe as well as a hometown outdoor headlining gig at Thetford Fest in Suffolk before teaming up with Lady Gaga.

"I've been living with my Lady Gaga secret for many moons and it's such a relief to be able to tell folk at last. I was beginning to go insane," says lead vocalist JUSTIN HAWKINS. "She is the best pop star of the 21st century bar none and we're honoured to have been selected. 2012 has been the most brilliant of years so far, and it's about to get even more magnificent!"
