THE SCRIPT Dublin Cas­tle Satur­day Satur­day at 7pm ¤49.50 tick­et­mas­ter.ie

Dublin-band The Script (Danny O’Donoghue, Glen Power and Mark Shee­han) has had a time of it since they formed just over 10 years ago.

Say what you like about their mu­sic, but the lads have paid their dues, first as a failed mid-1990s band (My­town), then as Los An­ge­les- based pro­duc­ers and song­writ­ers for hire (in­clud­ing TLC, Brit­ney, and Boyz II Men), and then in 2001 – now back in Dublin – as rock band hope­fuls. We re­call when in­ter­est was so lack­lus­tre in them that they would play the likes of Whe­lan’s and fail to fill it.

The band’s com­mer­cial sta­tus is far from that now, of course, and they play this gig (which sold out its 4,000-plus tick­ets in three min­utes) not only as a sort of home­com­ing but also as a pro­mo­tional leg-up for their new, fourth, al­bum, No Sound With­out Si­lence.
