THE SCRIPT and a small army of their fans descended onto a sold out BIC on Thursday night as part of their Freedom Child tour.

Although the lads from Dublin were undoubtedly the main draw it was great to see so many people arrive in time to catch Ella Eyre who is a huge talent in her own right.

She never fails to put on a great show and tonight was no exception.

Most of the crowd would disagree when she said that she was only there to warm them up for The Script because there is no doubt that she should be headlining these larger venues in the not too distant future.

After a quick break, The Script hit the stage and from the opening beat of Glens drums and chords from Marks guitar it was full speed ahead.

We had an excursion into the crowd from Danny and a barrage of confetti cannons all within the first three songs.

Whether playing old favourites like The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, Breakeven and main set closer Rain or new material it was all delivered at breakneck speed with Mark and Danny covering every inch of the stage in a show that blew the crowd away.

The stage set up and light show were impressive without being over the top and perfectly complemented the delivery of an excellent set list.

We had mass bounce and sing-alongs, more confetti, pyrotechnics and an appearance from Danny on the top balcony of the venue.

All in all it was a great evening of entertainment from a band who have written some great songs, learned their stage craft and know how to interact with a crowd and take them along on their musical journey.
