The Darkness To Open For Lady Gaga On European Tour

Talk about an odd way to wake up.

As per their official website, The Darkness will open for Lady Gaga for a slew of dates in Europe.

“The Darkness are honoured to announce their addition to the bill as main support for Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour 2012.” –TheActualDarkness.Com

Now those dates are only in Europe, so we won’t be getting that show on this side of the pond. Quite frankly not sure how many people want it on this side of the pond(Darkness fans I speak of). As some may see this as somewhat “cheesy”, then you’re obviously not in touch with what The Darkness are all about. Personally, the guy typing this is not a Lady Gaga fan. But she fills seats, in large, epic venues. Now I’d love to take all those drones who don’t recognize Madonna’s moves from 20 years ago.. I would love make sure all of them are enlightened by The Darkness.  If Lady Gaga hand picked them, then kudos to her for having taste in music.
