So much has changed for The Script since they released their first album four years ago. They broke Britain, then the States, then everywhere from Asia to South Africa.

Along the way, they’ve toured with U2, Take That and Paul McCartney, sailed through the second album syndrome that sinks so many bands, played to a 55,000-strong crowd at an historic hometown show in Dublin, amassed almost four million followers on Facebook and 1.5 million on Twitter, sold four million albums, nine million singles,

Frontman O’Donoghue also became a bigger household name on TV talent show The Voice UK.

Band members Mark Sheehan and Glen Power joined him this summer to release new album #3, out now on Phonogenic/Sony.

After laying down more US roots on a November tour, the band will write a whole new Script next year when they step into the spotlight for arena dates throughout the UK.

Sheffield Motorpoint Arena tickets will be £29.50, booking fee may apply. Buy in person from the Box Office, call 0114 256 5656 or book online at or
