The quality of sound was fantastic, Justin playing a very sparkly guitar, keyboard and a huge pipe organ at the back of the set. A sensational performance was given by all of the band and even the new bassist.

Sound: The camp metal maestros were back in town for another magnificent performance. The quality of sound was fantastic, Justin playing a very sparkly guitar, keyboard and a huge pipe organ at the back of the set. A sensational performance was given by all of the band and even the new bassist, one of the best concerts I have been to as far as quality of sound goes! // 10
Perfomance: The performance was sensational and the crowd participated in every song, from Black Shuck to Givin' up, playing a fantastic selection of songs from both albums. You knew it was going to be good when Justin flew over the crowd to the sound of the song knockers whilst atop of gigantic breasts with flashing nipples. There was a surprisingly large amount of pyrotechnics involved in the stage show. They opened with knockers and closed with Bald (especially for the new bassist). The new bassist was fantastic, and Justin got the whole crowd chanting his name as he was "Sworn Into" the band. The support bands didn't disappoint ether; there was a Swedish band called "The Ark" and another band called "Juliette And The Licks." Though good they did not overshadow the main event. // 10
Overall Impression: The Darkness, February 13th, 2006, Newcastle, UK was one of the second best show I've ever been to this show had everything - fire, breasts and guitars. The set list was fantastic and the crowd interaction was well timed and not excessive. The tickets were around 27, which was a steal considering the show they put on, and the merchandise was cheap as well, picking up a tour shirt for around 20, not bad considering most are 25. If they were to come again I would go see them and I would recommend others to do the same! // 10
