Live Review: The Darkness
Venue: Glasgow O2 Academy
Justin and co. light up Glasgow.
The Darkness have been at this tongue-in-cheek shtick for 15 years now, yet they still know how to kick it live. Opener Barbarian gets things off to a raucous start, and not even the PA’s poor performance can dampen the party atmosphere in the sold-out hall. It’s difficult to make out Justin Hawkins’s vocals over the muddy mix, but the intro to Growing On Me is instantly recognisable and the audience have got the singer covered.
