In support of the US release of their debut album, Irish rock band The Script have announced their first US headlining tour with special guest opening act Parachute.
The Script, the biggest breaking new band of 2008 in UK and their native Ireland, are celebrating the success of their debut self-titled album by heading out on their first national U.S. tour this summer. Having just wrapped up a sold-out run as main support for Grammy Award winning artist Adele, The Script will officially return to the road as headliners on July 30th at Chop Suey in Seattle, WA. The tour will cover 14 major cities across America and conclude at the Rock N Roll Hotel in Washington D.C. on August 17th. Joining The Script on the road this summer is the soulful pop-rock group Parachute who’s major label debut Losing Sleep hit stores last Tuesday. The Script are Dubliners Danny O’Donoghue (keys and vocals), Mark Sheehan (guitar) and Glen Power (drums). This extremely talented trio’s debut has already spawned numerous hit singles abroad, including the band’s first official U.S. single, “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” which reached #1 in 5 countries and is currently holding strong in the Top 20 at Adult Radio stateside. THE SCRIPT is currently 2x platinum in the UK, 5x platinum in Ireland, and is a story of both tragedy and triumph, struggle and survival – the epic journey of 3 Dublin boys from the wrong side of the tracks.
