Black Stone Cherry And The Darkness Announce 2023 Co-Headline UK Tour With Danko Jones

Wednesday, 22 June 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Black Stone Cherry and The Darkness have announced a co-headline UK tour.

The British and American rockers will kick off 2023 with arena shows in Cardiff, Liverpool, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and London, where they'll play the OVO Arena Wembley on February 4.

Support will come from Canadian trio Danko Jones, with tickets on general sale at 10am on June 24. The Darkness vocalist and guitarist, Justin Hawkins commented:

"Legend tells of a night, some ten or more years ago, upon which The Darkness and Black Stone Cherry serenaded the nocturnal creatures of Thetford Forest, receiving generally favourable reviews in the woodland press. Like the owls and squirrels of that fabled evening, we give to you an opportunity to stand beaks and mouths a-gape in awe and wonder at the awesome power of power chords played by the very same fingers, but within the convenient shelter of an arena instead of in a moon-dappled forest clearing. There may be some seating so you won’t have to sit on toadstools. Also, modern flushing toilet facilities, not just tree trunks and bushes. Remember what the Thetford fauna say - "The music of Black Stone Cherry and The Darkness is TREEmendous, and Never LEAVES you."

Black Stone Cherry added: "The rock n' roll history books will tell you that on a summer's night in 2012, tucked way back in the English countryside, two bands, from different parts of the world, came together to bring people a night of high energy, pedal to the metal, in your face unscripted rock ‘n’ roll.  A bond was formed that could only have been blessed by the wizards of said forest.  While discussing each other’s outfits and stage moves, a tour was spoken of, put into the galaxy if you will, and now we are honoured to say the stars have finally aligned and we will be joining forces with The Darkness for what will be the UK's most exciting tour of the season! We absolutely cannot wait to create more magic and release the lightning that both bands caught in a bottle so many years ago.  Grab your friends, grab your family, but hold on to your asses because this tour is going to ROCK!"

The news comes hot on the heels of Black Stone Cherry's London premiere of their concert film and documentary, 'Live From The Royal Albert Hall… Y'All', which is set to land via Mascot Label Group this Friday (June 24). The Darkness, meanwhile, put out their seventh studio LP, 'Motorheart', in November 2021.
