The Script are currently on a creative and personal high, with their new single Hall Of Fame featuring will.i.am at number one and their excellent new album  #3 currently riding high in the album charts, the Irish threesome have many reasons to be cheerful.

The band have also announced a 13 date tour starting next year in their home city of Dublin from March 1st. The tour, which will also take in Birmingham and Manchester, will see the three men come to Liverpool on Saturday 9th March and perform at the Liverpool Echo Arena.

So much has happened for Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power since they released their first album four years ago, they broke Britain, the United States of America states, then everywhere from Asia to South America.

Along the way they have toured with u2, Take That and Paul McCartney, sailed through second album syndrome that is the curse of many bands, played to a 55,000-strong crowd at an historic hometown show in Dublin, amassed almost four million followers on facebook, sold four million albums and in excess of nine million singles.

Tickets for this gig go on sale Friday 21st September at 9.30am from www.gigsandtours.com, www.ticketmaster.co.uk or via telephone on 0844 8000400.
