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.
