The Script are just about to release their sixth studio album and have just announced a massive European tour on the back of it.

The Dublin band will play 21 dates across the UK, Ireland and Europe in February and March next year including Belfast's SSE Arena on March 3 followed by two 3Arena dates on March 6 and 7.

Four years ago tickets for their massive Croke Park gig sold out in less than an hour.

Their new album, Sunsets and Full Moons, will release on November 8 and has been described as a sequel to ther debut album.

Lead singer Danny O'Donohue lost his father around the time of their debut release and ten years later he lost his mother as they worked on this album.  Both his parents passed away on Valentine's Day.

“I think it’s the most poignant record we’ve ever made,” says O’Donoghue. “Our music was always about being together with the audience, and writing about your own feelings, and sharing them”.

The band, who have racked up 10.8 million albums sales since their debut, last toured in 2017 with Freedom Child.

Tickets for their Irish dates priced from €42.70 go on sale on Friday 18 October at 9.30am.
