Lady Gaga has chosen the Darkness to open for her when her Born This Way Ball tour kicks off August 14 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The UK metal/glam band said on their website that they are "honored" the be the "main support for Lady Gaga's Born This Way Ball tour 2012."
Frontman Justin Hawkins added that "I have been living with my Lady Gaga secret for many moons and its such a relief to tell folks at last."
The Darkness made their mark with the smash hit "A Thing Called Love" back in 2005 before breaking up in 2006. The band recently reunited and announced plans for a new album.
After kicking off August 14 in Bulgaria, Gaga and the Darkness will make stops in Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Germany, France and the U.K. before wrapping October 6 in Barcelona.
