Are you ready to rock the big top?

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

THE Darkness are set to light up this year's Summer Pops.

The rock band, led by Justin Hawkins, will rock the big top on Thursday, July 13.

It is the first time they have brought their spectacular take on stadium metal to the Pops.

Justin said today: "To play for the people of Liverpool is privilege enough but to play on the same line-up as Whitesnake is truly wonderful. Liverpool will be rocked!"

The Darkness have been one of the most surprising rock smash hits of recent years.

Their debut single, I Believe In A Thing Called Love, introduced a whole legion of fans to their take on the classic rock of the 70s and 80s.

City council leader Warren Bradley said: "The Darkness is a fantastic addition to a line-up full of the diversity which makes the Pops such a unique and special attraction."

Chas Cole of promoters CMP, said: "Adding The Darkness to this year's Pops line-up completes a set of huge star names with what is surely our best bill ever."
