City centre gig aims to make (radio) waves

WITH so many bands, so many one-hit-acts and even more artists being discovered through the wonders of the world wide web, it can be hard to keep track of them, writes Gillian Loney.

Perhaps there are those among you who count The Script as one of your favourite bands of recent years – the success of 2008 single The Man Who Can’t Be Moved proves that there are some out there.

But for this reporter, the group is one of those cases of remembering the song, if not the act itself.

But wait! – I hear you cry, indignant at such a snub. Danny O’Donoghue was a judge on The Voice! Unfortunately, another popular form of entertainment lost on me.

Still, the band are on to a new album (#3, out September 10), and promoting it with an intimate tour of three UK venues, including Glasgow’s O2 ABC on Sunday.

Fans can expect to hear their new single Hall of Fame (featuring will.i.am) and other songs from the latest album – one suspects, somehow, that they’ll enjoy the indie pop band’s new offerings as much as that other song which dominated the airwaves for so long.

The Script play the O2 ABC on Sunday. Doors open at 7pm, and show is for 14+. Tickets are £27.50, available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
