Now here’s an absolutely heart-melting story. The Darkness played a show at the Picturedome in Holmfirth last night and during the show lead vocalist and guitarist Justin Hawkins spotted a young fan by the name of Zak watching the show next to the PA stack. Hawkins then suggested to his parents that they move him away from the stack so he could enjoy the show without being deafened. However, he was informed that Zack had, “stuff in his ears”.
As an alternative, Hawkins then invited Zak on stage to watch the rest of the show by the drum riser. Zak was even allowed to invite his friend Haydyn on stage to watch the show with him. When the two kids finally left the stage, Hawkins announced that they were allowed to have anything they wanted from the merchandise stall.
That Justin Hawkins is a class act.
