The Script to play at Thetford Forest

Irish trio The Script have today been announced as the sixth and final act to appear at Thetford Forest this summer as part of Forestry Commission Live Music.

The young Dubliners, whose debut album went to number one album in the UK and became international sensations with hits such as We Cry, The Man Who Can't Be Moved, and Breakeven, will play the forest on Thursday July 14, ahead of fellow Irishmen Westlife and Bryan Ferry on the 15th and 16th.

Their decision to play at the forest completes a diverse line-up of musical talent, coming after announcements from Status Quo, Erasure and Simple Minds who play on June 9, 10, and 11 respectively.

The Script's Spring 2011 UK indoor arena tour dates sold out in record time after performing as special guests with music heroes U2, Take That and Paul McCartney on their respective stadium shows.

Their second album, 'Science & Faith', released in the UK last September, again hit the top spot in the charts and has already generated the hits Nothing and For The First Time.
