The Wildhearts – Darkness European Tour Support

By Kris | January 17, 2004

We’ve been deluged with questions about what the Wildhearts are warming up for in February. I’ll leave Ginger to explain the good news:

I’m delighted to say that we are being invited to join The Darkness on their European tour. Some bands promise a lot when they start out, and often forget all about promises made when things take off for them. Or simply turn into fucking arseholes that forget their roots.

Well not many bands take off bigger than the Darkness, and I’m delighted to say that they have lived up to every promise they made. Genuine guys with real talent? Now THAT is fucking rare. God bless ’em for remembering us, and helping someone other than themselves.

If you are in a band you should learn something from bands like The Darkness. And of course the Wildhearts!”

The tour begins on Feb 10th in Amsterdam and takes in dates across Europe, finishing on March 2nd before the band head out to the US (full dates coming soon). The band can’t wait to play to new audiences across Europe, with CJ commenting “It’s going to be a fine tour and I can’t wait to get my mouth round a big juicy bratwurst. Hold the mayo ‘motherfucka'”
