The Razz: Justin is light relief at heart of Darkness.

Byline: JOHN DINGWALL

WICKED: Justin HawkinsTHE Darkness rode into Scotland last night on a wave of euphoria supplied by a sellout crowd at Glasgow's SECC. Later, singer Justin Hawkins rode out again on the back of a Siberian tiger - stuffed, of course.

The Lowestoft band, who walked away with three Brit awards this year, provided an impressive pyrotechnic display, including a bank of 20 flamethrowers, to accompany favourites including I Believe In A Thing Called Love, Love On The Rocks, Love Is Only A Feeling and Get Your Hands Offa My Woman Motherf ***** .

Hawkins played to the crowd, donning a tartan tammy as he changed the title of English Country Garden to Scottish Country Garden.

The Darkness are more Noddy Holder than Freddie Mercury, more Focus and AC/DC than Queen, but wicked nonetheless.
