The Script are also one of the biggest live bands, having sold over 1.4 million tickets across 203 headline shows and they sold out the legendary Croke Park stadium in their hometown in a matter of minutes.
The Script, who have toured South Africa twice with sold out tours (2011 and 2015), consist of members Danny O’Donoghue (vocals), Mark Sheehan (guitar) and Glen Power (drums). After reaching number fifteen in the charts with their 2008 debut single We Cry, their second single The Man Who Can’t Be Moved peaked at number two.

Their new album Freedom Child has topped the UK Official Albums Chart, seeing off competition from LCD Soundsystem and OMD. The #1 sees The Script score their fourth UK #1 album. Freedom Child also topped the iTunes chart in their native Ireland, as well as a further 13 countries. They also entered the Top 10 on iTunes in 47 markets around the globe. The band have said of their Number 1 album win, “You guys may never understand how happy we are to have achieved our 4th number 1 album. You see, we’ve worked so hard on it and ultimately the fans decided whether it’s a strong album or not. We’re so so lucky and are humbled by it.”
