The Script Performed at a packed First Direct Arena in Leeds last night with support form Ella Henderson, full review coming soon.
Dublin’s The Script offer a bridge between Ireland’s rich musical past and contemporary pop successes. The trio’s soulful radio-ready pop owes as much to Van Morrison and U2 as it does to The Coronas, Snow Patrol and Ronan Keating.
The band was formed in Dublin by Danny O’Donaghue (vocals) and Mark Sheehan (guitar) after their boyband Mytown split in 2000. The duo headed out to LA to gain experience as producers but eventually headed back to Dublin and linked up with drummer Glen Power to form The Script.
First single We Cry got things off to a promising start, quickly followed by The Script’s 2008 self-titled debut album. The Script landed at No.1 in both the UK and Ireland and yielded three Top 10 hits in the band’s home country. A host of high-profile support slots followed, including Take That, U2 and Paul McCartney.
