The Script have admitted that their concert in Croke Park this evening will be the highlight of their career so far.
The group have been touring the US, but have taken their No Sound Without Silence tour back to Dublin to play in front of 80,000 fans in Croker.
Speaking to the Irish Independent, guitarist Mark Sheehan said, “It feels mental. It’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done.”
He admitted that when the band first started out, it was hard to get anyone to turn up to their concerts, so they’re still getting used to the idea of selling out arena’s and stadiums all over the world.
“When The Script kicked off, no one gave a s**t and thought we were American. It was tough getting people to come to see us in the Sugar Club. I think we got 63 people there, and more of them were family and friends, and now to play this place is probably the biggest mind melt,” said Mark.
Playing in their biggest Irish venue to date is a massive accomplishment for the band, and lead singer Danny O’Donoghue is still trying to get his head around it.
“We’ve all been to Croke Park before for massive sporting events. To sell out in the time we did and to be the third Irish band to ever play Croke Park is amazing,” said Danny.
For those who weren’t able to buy tickets for the concert, the group have decided to livestream the event from their website this evening for their fans around the globe.
“It’s not the same as being at the concert, but it allows people who didn’t get tickets to watch it,” said Danny.
Well we can’t wait to see how the Dublin trio get on later this evening!
