The Darkness have just been given the boost their comeback career needed -- they've been confirmed to support Lady Gaga on her Born This Way Ball in Europe!

While they'll be playing their own solo shows in Europe while Gaga tours in Oz during June, Justin Hawkins and his band will open for the pop superstar on her Born This Way Ball tour dates from August to October.

The group reformed last year after splitting in 2006.

Performance Artist Lady Starlight will also be supporting the Born This Way Ball in Europe.

This gets us excited to think of what awesome supports Lady Gaga might confirm for her Australian leg of the Born This Way Ball.

Who would you like to see opening for Lady Gaga? 63 sleeps to go!
