As of today (30/07/2015) The Script have played at least 46 gigs in Ireland from places like the Sugar Club with a capacity of 350 to Croke Park’s 80 thousand.
Information about the early gigs is still patchy at best but The Script was one of the rare bands who had an album deal before they started gigging. This is not to say they haven’t caught up since, we all know the amount of places they visit each year to play live. (Check the complete list of The Script gigs here.) They played Dublin venues as they were writing their songs in 2007-2008.
