The Script will hold a concert next year free of charge for 13,000 frontline staff and primary care workers, including doctors, nurses, ambulance staff, cleaners and porters.

The concert will take place in Dublin's 3Arena on February 9, 2021 and is open to all frontline workers in Ireland.

In a statement issued this evening, the legendary Irish band thanked frontline staff for their tireless work during the pandemic.

"We've always been huge supporters of those working on the frontline of our health care," the band said.

"They make sacrifices day in and day out, working harder than anyone. Not only to make sure we have access to resources in order for us to continue to live happy and healthy lives, but to also help us and our loved ones through some of the hardest points in our lives."

They said that "the very least" that they could do to give back to "amazing sacrifices" was hold a free concert.

"The very least for us to do in order to give back to their amazing sacrifices during this pandemic is getting to put on a free show for 13,000 HSE and NHS staff at the 3Arena in Dublin.

"We can't thank them enough for their continued service to everyone, much more now than ever. Danny, Mark & Glen x," the band added.

Tickets will be limited to two per person for eligible frontline staff and one guest and will be available online from Tuesday April 7th at 7pm.

Frontline staff must bring their valid staff identification to the show in order to be allowed entry.
