Best Double Bill Ever?

Rock jesters The Darkness are supporting noted alien glamstress and Mother Monster, Lady Gaga, on her optimistically titled UK ‘tour’ (two stadium gigs in England and a show in Ireland counts as a tour, does it?  I must be getting old).

GagaNicko - the REAL dynamic duo...

My sniping aside, this is clearly the greatest meeting of minds since wily old goat Gene Simmons decided to fund his latest house extension by going on tour in the States this summer with Motley Crue.  La Gaga loves herself some rock – witness  evidence of Mother Monster with a right old gargoyle above (sorry Nicko) – so this blend of pop glam and glam rock revival seems like a match made on a particularly prescient spreadsheet.

The shows are in September and – I’ll wager – probably sold out by the time that you read this…
