Aberdeen date for The Script

By David Porter

The Script have announced their UK and European Arena Tour including a P&J Live date on March 13, 2020.

The Irish alt-pop trio The Script embark upon a new chapter with the release of their new album Sunsets & Full Moons on November 8.

Having returned with the emotive, stadium-bound first single The Last Time, Sunsets & Full Moons is the sound of The Script – Danny O’Donoghue (vocals, piano, guitar), Mark Sheehan (vocals, guitars) and Glen Power (drums) – focusing on the inclusive, uplifting song writing that helped them become an arena-filling band with a fervent fan base worldwide.

Head of Entertainment at P&J Live Louise Stewart commented: “We can’t wait to welcome back The Script to Aberdeen, to perform at our brand new events venue for the first time, after they wowed a crowd of 6000 last time they were in town.

"We look forward to the release of their new album, and excited to hear them play their new songs live in March.”

In many ways, Sunsets & Full Moons feels like a sequel to The Script’s much-loved debut album.

Both albums emerged from emotionally turbulent times: O’Donoghue lost his father around the time of the release of their debut.

And ten years later, he lost his mother as they worked on this album - with both his parents passing on Valentine’s Day.

Naturally the songs began to reflect the band’s own personal experiences - and those are themes sure to resonate with their fans, too.

As Danny O’Donoghe said: “I think it’s the most poignant record we’ve ever made.

"Our music was always about being together with the audience, and writing about your own feelings, and sharing them”.

The overriding theme, concludes O’Donoghue, is simple: “No matter how deep and dark it gets, it’s going to be daylight again.”

Exuding hope and positivity in the face of challenging times, The Script’s sense of uplift as alive and vital as it ever was.

Tickets are on sale Friday, October 18 from 9.30am from pandjlive.com.
