A whole lot of rosie is just the cup of tea for The Script

THE Rolling Stones may have famously demanded a separate room for their touring snooker table but Dublin rockers The Script want nothing more than a nice cup of tea.

The band, who are reportedly "serious" tea drinkers, only had one request yesterday ahead of their four sell-out shows at Dublin's 02 -- a packet of Barry's Tea. The company decided to go a step further, however, and produced a personalised pack, with the band's name emblazoned across the front.

Last night, Danny O'Donoghue, Glen Power, Mark Sheehan, Paul Walker and Terry Daly took to the stage for the first of four sell-out shows.

"I can't believe we're here in Dublin to do an arena show," said Power. "The best part of coming home is playing to the home crowd. The atmosphere is always unbelievable," he said.

He added the one thing they had when they were touring was a cup of Irish tea. "The first thing we do in the morning is put the kettle on. When I go away, and this is no joke, my mother throws a box of Barry's Tea in the bag," he said.

After their Irish shows, The Script will embark on an eight-month tour in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong and the US.
