PHOTOS: The Darkness – San Francisco, CA 03/16/2022

In support of their 2021 album ‘Motorheart’, The Darkness are currently on tour to and seem determined to celebrate live shows returning with flair and fun. The San Francisco show at the Regency Ballroom featured the band hamming it up for the crowd with dramatic posturing, to-the-crowd guitar solos and multiple costume changes. Lead singer Justin Hawkins’s voice was in fine shape and with a falsetto that’s a throwback and unique compared to other rockers out there. The band’s commitment to their music and their shows really shine on-stage and as different as the band is in 2022, they sparkle and glimmer with the energy of Queen. The band members, not just the front man, dance and play with genuine enthusiasm and mirth. Check out the photos.
