A British rock band which penned one of the most-played songs of the 2000s will perform on a South West stage next month.

The Darkness will play at Bristol’s Colston Hall, in Colston Street, on December 14 at 7pm.

The band shot to fame in 2003 with the release of their debut album Permission To Land, which included glam rock smash hit I Believe In A Thing Called Love.

The album reached the rare landmark of quadruple platinum sales, with more than 1.3 million people buying a copy, and that success propelled the Suffolk band to a trio of Brit Awards.

The four-piece are famed for their high-energy, high-pitched performances led by Justin Hawkins.

The Darkness also enjoyed chart hits with Christmas Time, One Way Ticket and Love Is Only A Feeling before making an exciting comeback this year.

Tickets, priced £29.56, are available from 01172 034040 or online via www.colstonhall.org
