Irish alt-pop trio The Script will perform at Aberdeen’s P&J Live this Friday.
Brining their latest UK and European Arena Tour to the venue, the group will be supported by British singer-songwriter Becky Hill.
The band released their new album Sunsets & Full Moons in November last year, marking the start of a new chapter for the band.
The sound of The Script includes Danny O’Donoghue (vocals, piano, guitar), Mark Sheehan (vocals, guitars) and Glen Power (drums). Lead singer Danny O’Donoghue is also famed as a judge on The Voice.
The Script, who formed in Dublin in 2007, have since amassed album sales in excess of 30 million and racked up several top 10 singles, including chart-topper, Hall Of Fame.
