Supporting bands coming up

Thank you for your help to decide which bands you’d be most interested in to read about. Through the following weeks, I’ll feature a little piece with the following bands, so watch this place. (Or sign up for getting new posts via email on the right.)

The Original Rudeboys

First to come will be about one of the support acts on The Script’s #3 tour in 2013. The ORB (as they’re called more recently) are an Irish trio from Dublin playing pop songs with hip-hop elements. The three lads, Sean “Neddy” Arkins, Rob Burch and Sean “Walshy” Walsh have been long-time friends so forming the band happened organically. They loved the opportunity to play with The Script on the road.

Campus.ie: You have also played some really impressive support slot this year, like with The Script earlier in the year, as well as The Game, Professor Green and Damien Dempsey. If you could play with or support any band on the planet who would it be?

Rob Burch: Coming up soon, Ed Sheeran is playing Madison Square Garden. We want to play a venue like that with an artist like that.

Sean Walsh: We got to support The Script, one of the biggest bands in the world. If you asked us that question a year ago, we probably would have said The Script. We went to see U2 in Croke Park a few years ago and The Script were supporting them and we weren’t even in a band at the time, we hadn’t even thought of the band.

Neddy Arkins: We were fans of The Script before we knew them, but there is always a much better connection when you know the three of them come from across the road. They were always in our top band to support. We knew we would get on great with them and we did.
