Dublin act The Script are to headline Croke Park next year.

The band  - and support act Pharrell Williams - were revealed as the act that will play at the sports stadium on June 20th 2015,

The act behind The Hall of Fame and If You Could See Me Now - Danny O’Donoghue, Marh Sheehan and Glen Power – were in the sports ground for the announcement by promoters MCD.

The Script's last major show in Dublin’s Aviva stadium saw them them draw crowds of over 50,000, and they sold out their Dublin Castle gig in September - to coincide with the launch of their fourth studio album ‘No Sound Without Silence - in just three minutes.

Tickets from €45.00 incl. booking fee go on sale this Thursday.

Westlife, Take That and One Direction are among the groups to have sold to well-out 80,000 crowds at Croke Park in recent years.

The gigs are the first announced  for the stadium since Garth Brooks pulled the plug on five concerts there  in July.

The hopes of 400,000 fans were dashed following a clash between Dublin City chiefs, local residents and promoters about staging five nights of concerts in a row.

The Script gigs were announced as the Department of Environment announced that it was reviewing the legislations around the licencing of outdoor music events.

Advertisements have been placed in the national newspapers appealing for any submissions to be made by November 28.
