Snap Scene: The Script, Hisense Arena, 19th April 2018

Dublin’s finest young pop rock band The Script played the first Australian show of their Freedom Child Tour at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena on Thursday 19 April 2018. Returning Down Under after a three-year absence, The Script is Danny O’Donoghue (vocals/keyboard), Mark Sheehan (lead guitar) and Glen Power (drums). After forming in 2007, the band made a grand entrance into the global charts with their eponymous UK #1 debut album in 2008 and its epic, emotionally-charged pop rock anthems Man Who Can’t Be Moved, We Cry, Before The Worst and three-time ARIA Platinum Breakeven.

The Script’s next three albums kept them buoyant in the charts, delivering hits like For the First Time, Hall of Fame (ft. (seven-time ARIA Platinum) and Superheroes (two-time ARIA Platinum). Their latest release Freedom Child is their fifth studio album; it peaked at #5 on the Australian charts, and gave them a fifth #1 in their home country and fourth #1 in the UK. Frontman Danny O’Donoghue was a coach on The Voice UK for seasons 1 and 2, before leaving the show in order to focus more on The Script.
