The Script have had a career that many dream about. Five albums, a handful of awards, and four major tours the Irish rock pop band has gifted the world with their music for more than a decade. While some bands may think of slowing down after such illustrious accolades, The Script seems to show no signs of stopping. On their most recent tour The Script took to the Genting Arena creating a pop rock wonderland.

Pop princess Ella Eyre opened the night. Bouncing around in bright pink track pants and flocked by her band Eyre warmed up the crowd with her powerhouse vocals. After a short turnover The Script emerged, surfacing in the middle of the Arena rather than in the usual main stage. The intimate first few songs display this deep connection between band and fans, a theme for the night. With “Superheroes,” “Rock the World,” and “Paint the Town Green” The Script embraced the ecstatic crowds. Each song’s unique blend of pop and rock wrapped the audience in a friendly up-tempo sound.

High-energy pop songs trickled forth as the band ran from the middle arena to the main stage. Fan favourites like “Nothing,” “For The First Time,” and “No Man Is an Island” brought strong pop rock flair. Acoustic “Arms Open” and piano led “Six Degrees of Separation” brought a lighter side to the set, a perfect balance between power pop and sentimental ballads. The crowd was certainly wooed by each tune, an emotional outpouring of love and exhilaration punctuating each note.

After a handful of songs on the main stage the band once again disappeared, this time popping up in the side of the arena amongst fans. Again in a display of connection between fans and band, The Script became one with the side of the arena playing a handful of stripped back tunes before once again rushing back to the main stage.  Back on the main stage the band ended with fan favourites “The Energy Never Dies” and “Rain,” before returning for a triad for the encore that included “No Good in Goodbye” and “Hall of Fame.”

The Script are overtaking arenas, blasting standout performances and enlightening sets. Their playful demeanour and goodwill nature continue to nurture the enduring relationship with fans, an obvious reason why they have continued for so long.

On tour The Script craft a brilliant experience that paired with their upbeat tunes create a perfected evening of escapism, a pop rock wonderland, a haven in the midst of cold dreary nights.
