MULTI-MILLION selling band The Script have announced that they are to play two intimate gigs in Dublin and Cork this week.



Despite playing to 55,000 people in their hometown concert at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium last summer, the trio have chosen to play at the smaller venues of Dublin’s Academy on Wednesday and Cork Opera House on Thursday as a reward to their fans.

Tickets will be available from 9am on Tuesday at the Ticketmaster outlet in St Stephens Green Shopping Centre and Cork Opera House box-office.. Including booking fee, tickets for the Cork and Dublin shows are priced at €37 and €39.05 respectively.

The Script members Danny O’Donaghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power have amassed sales of four million albums and nine million singles since their self-titled debut album was released in 2008. They followed that up with Science & Faith in 2010 and are set to release their third studio album #3 on Friday.

The band have raised their profile dramatically by touring with such musical heavyweights as U2, Paul McCartney and Take That while frontman Danny has become a household name in the UK as one of the judges on BBC’s The Voice.

They have also been able to find success in the elusive US charts where many Irish and British acts have failed to make an impact—Science & Faith peaked at number three in the Billboard Album Chart.

Special guests for both gigs will be The Original Rude Boys.
