The band will play at Ormeau Park, Belfast this June before taking on Live at the Marquee in Cork.
Following a sold out UK Arena Tour and a number one album in 2017, Irish three-piece The Script will play in Belfast and Cork in 2018. The tour comes in support of their number 1 charting album Freedom Child.
In Belfast, the band will be joined on the night by one of Ireland's finest singer-songwriters, Gavin James.
The Script's new album Freedom Child topped the Irish Albums Chart on its opening week. It also hit the top spot on the other side of the Irish sea, with their #1 in the UK making it their fourth UK #1 album. Freedom Child also topped the charts 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.”
Freedom Child sees the band presenting a collection of urgent, timely, future-facing anthems that speak of both real-life events and real-time sonic adventurism. The album was recorded between London and Los Angeles and for the first time, the band chose to work with some outside writers and producers including Toby Gad and Nasri Atweh.
The first single from Freedom Child, Rain, was immediately added to playlists up and down the country and stormed straight into the Top 10 on iTunes. Rain is picking up a phenomenal amount of support around the world - it has been playlisted by Radio 1, Radio 2, Capital and many more and is currently the 3rd most played song on national radio.
