Script ready to rock Aviva and here is your chance to meet them

The Script are preparing to give Dubliners their biggest gig ever.

The Herald can reveal that Danny O'Donoghue, Glen Power and Mark Sheehan will be headlining their first gig at Aviva Stadium next July, after shattering records for ticket sales earlier this year.

Having sold out 60,000 tickets in 20 minutes for their March tour, they have been recruited to perform in front of 50,000 people on July 2, and promise that it's going to be a "massive one".


The trio are fast becoming one of Dublin's most successful music exports, currently tackling the notoriously difficult-to-crack US market with much success.

They broke Irish box office records in September, selling out their homecoming March tour dates in less than an hour, becoming the fastest selling live act in Ireland this year.

Their new album, Science And Faith, has taken both the Irish and UK album charts by storm, shooting to the number one position and achieving platinum status in its first week of release

Speaking to the Herald, drummer Glen Power said he "dreamed of this as a child" and can't wait to take to the stage of the brand new venue.

"We were asked would we want to do it and we felt unsure about it originally," he said.

"But then we thought about it and thought a lot of Irish fans missed out on getting tickets for our Irish tour, and there is still a lot of demand, so let's go back in the summer.

"And we get to spend the summer back in Dublin, any excuse to get home."
