The Script has quite a short setlist this time around, but this does not stop them from hitting all the highlights and causing quite a huge crowd stir. The group has three albums to their credit, and they evenly split distribution with about 3 songs a piece from each release. The group’s debut self-titled record put them on the map, and it is only fair they drop all its big songs. This includes “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” and “We Cry.” They also perform “Before the Worst,” rounding out what appears from the first record. They may also throw in a performance of “Breakeven (Falling to Pieces)” if time prevails.
Moving on is their sophomore record, Science & Faith. This album established them as more than one hit wonders, and tracks such as “Nothing” and “For the First Time” prove some sense of longevity for the rock group.
The new album, titled #3, does not get as much love as it would if this was a solo headlining outing. The group does perform “Good Ol’ Days” as the show opener, and “Hall of Fame” towards the end of the set and the song is commonly the closing track for the evening. Despite #3 dropping in 2012, the group does not have any new material to perform. They are expected to enter the studio after this tour and take a modest break.

Who is opening the show?
The Script is an opening act under the group Onerepublic, who is most well known for their 2008 jams, “Stop and Stare” and “Apologize,” both from their landmark debut. But they are a long way from this debut and currently touring on the back of their third studio release and tour namesake, Native. Their current hit is the insanely popular “Counting Stars” from this 2013 release.
Supporting both the Script and Onerepublic is American Authors. This comparatively younger, though just as polished and talented group, is gaining some huge buzz in alt-rock circles. They just released their debut in 2014, Oh, What a Life! It has garnered rave reviews and could be an indication of the next big alt-rock band taking the mantle.
How long is a The Script concert?
The Script is opening the show so their typical 90 minute setlist is a bit confined. They get on stage for a minimum for 30 minutes and a maximum of about 40 to 45 minutes, depending on time constraints.
How do I get access to presale tickets for The Script’s tour?
The band is working closely with two of the most popular options for presale tickets. This includes the ever popular presale platform created by American Express. You need an American Express card to make the purchase. You also need an account with TicketMaster for acquiring the tickets.
You can also use the alternative presale option, Presale Passwords Info. The independent presale service collects passwords and general information for the majority of major tours. You need an account with them to gain the presale access, but they are the most viable option for non- American Express cardholders.
Lastly, you can find tickets available through the official Onerepublic website page. Presales are not available through the Script’s official website, likely because they only have supporting status for this tour. There is no account access or fan club membership required for tickets or VIP upgrades if applicable and available.
Who is The Script’s publicist and press contact?
The Script works with the London based collective, Hall or Nothing. All management inquires can be sent using the message form on their website. You can also contact them through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
“For all the references, vocally and rhythmically, to hip-hop, like the similarly arranged Maroon 5, the Script plays heartland rock. It is by Bryan Adams out of Snow Patrol, rolls out of Cleveland but aspires to Dublin (everyone wants some U2), sips from soft metal and power balladry and feasts on love and survival, sits down for an acoustic bracket and raises a clenched fist in unison rather than defiance.” – Bernard Zuel of the Sydney Morning Herald
“Before the band started playing Nothing, Danny prompted the members of the audience to “drunk dial” an ex-girlfriend/boyfriend and to pass him their mobile phone once it starts ringing. Being unfamiliar to The Script’s concert antics, I thought he was kidding at first. To my surprise, he took someone’s phone and started singing to the person on the line. I may not know who you are or how you look like, Elaine, but you are one lucky girl.” – Spin Orbin Music
“One quality that makes The Script such a great live band is that so many of their songs have an anthem-like hook in the chorus that just begs fans to join in and sing along. That’s just what happened during the title track from Science & Faith. One standout performance came after O’Donoghue remarked, “Last time we played this song here the crowd took over and it would be an absolute honor if you would do so again.” – Patrick Dunn of Twin Cities Daily Planet
