The Darkness Play Their Hometown For The Very First Time

(Classic Rock) "This is the first time in 13 years I've been embarrassed," Justin Hawkins admits during The Darkness' first ever hometown show. "I've just realised how embarrassing it is to sing songs about going to school in Lowestoft… in Lowestoft, to people who probably went to school with me.

"But don't worry. It didn't last long. I'm already back to feeling awesome, as usual." With the wind howling in off the North Sea, Justin, brother Dan, Ed Graham and Frankie Poullain created their own weather system inside the brand new Aquarium venue, melting a capacity crowd of 800 on its opening night.

The eastern most point of the United Kingdom boasted one of the oldest human settlements in the country but it hasn't had a venue big enough until now for its most famous musical export since composer Benjamin Britten.

"Any old school teachers here?" said the unitarded Justin, who could pass for Benjamin Button, early in the set. "You? You might be an old school teacher but you're not one of mine." more on this story
