More often than not, when bands like The Script have big singles like ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’ early on in their career, their popularity can quickly decline after such a massive peak. With 6 number one albums later, and the Irish trio being on a lengthy arena tour, it’s safe to say there’s no chance of that happening any time soon.
The first thing that hit me when The Script took the stage was the scale of the production, with a giant screen, moving stage elements, pyro and a really impressive light show all elevating the performance. These impressive visuals were consistently great throughout the whole night.
Throughout the set I was reminded just how many hits the group have had over the years, with big hits like ‘Superheroes’ kicking off the set and the crowd being extremely loud throughout the arena, with Danny and co matching that energy and warmth all night.
The Script made use of every space in Sheffield arena that they possible could. At one point they moved to the seating section of the arena, playing a few tracks acoustically right in the crowd. For a few songs in the middle of the show, the band relocated to a smaller stage towards the back of the arena, much to the delight of fans sat nearby. Performing fan favourites like ‘Science & Faith’ and ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’ in a more stripped back fashion under a big inflatable moon, this little segment was the highlight of the show for me.
Massive hit ‘Hall Of Fame’ ended the main set, leaving the crowd hungry for the encore.
I didn’t really know what to expect when going to see The Script, but I was massively impressed by every aspect of the show.
