Irish rock band The Script are heading for the north-east following an announcement to perform at P&J Live.
The trio, known for their songs ‘The Man Who Can’t be Moved’, ‘For the First Time’ and ‘Breakeven’ will play the state-of-the-art arena on March 13 next year.
P&J Live bosses expect tickets to be in demand, Louise Stewart, head of entertainment at the venue, said: “The Script have a massive following in the north-east – they attracted 6,000 fans the last time they played the Granite City in a gig fans still talk about.
“We are looking forward to the new memories they will create when they play P&J Live in March.”
The Script, who formed in Dublin in 2007, have amassed album sales in excess of 30 million and racked up several top 10 singles, including chart-topper, Hall Of Fame.
The band, who have a reputation for fantastic live gigs, will be releasing a new album later this year. A track from the album, The Last Time, was a contender for number 1 when it was released last month.
Lead singer Danny O’Donoghue is also famed as a judge on The Voice.
Tickets The Script will go on sale next Friday and are available at pandjlive.com.
