The Darkness -- Cambridge, England -- November 20th, 2011
Have seen these before quite a few years ago and was a laugh so thought i'd check them out, cheap tickets, smallish venue and went with a couple of mates who arent in the metal scene so was good to go to a concert with them for a change.
Foxy shazam were the second support (cant remember the first) but tbh they were fucking wierd - i have seen some fucked up acts, but these were just wierd! Just cant describe them....
The Darkness on the other hand were.....OK....they tried really hard, had some good pyrotechnics for a small venue but the crowd averaged around 35-45 yrs of age and was mainly couples and there wasn't too much atmosphere.
The set included all the songs off of permission to land, a couple off the second album and a load of new stuff which no one knew.
Not the best gig (didn't expect it to be) and not the worst.
