The hard-working lads are set to play 22 dates for the summer as of the 14th of July, although they keep adding dates to their schedule. The Script will play at 19 festivals and 3 headlining concerts all over Europe from Finland to Ireland and this year will see them go to Brasil the first time, playing the highly anticipated Rock im Rio in September.
This is The Script’s second visit to Finland, having played Helsinki in 2009 previously. They play on the second day of this four-day festival which is on the same island since 1979.
The international lineup features artists from every corner of the world but focuses on local talent.
