Review: The Script, Thetford Forest, July 11

Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power were having so much fun they became the men who can’t be moved; they were that reluctant to leave the stage.
Dublin’s finest had everybody rocking from the moment they walked out when they made a welcome return to Suffolk as part of Forest Live, the Forestry Commission’s annual concert series.
Since the release of their self-titled album in 2009, they’ve sold more than four million albums and nine million singles. Performing live is where they really shine, bantering with the sell-out crowd like old friends.
This included an ambitious photo-shoot and Danny, who told the audience off for letting him perform the first few songs with his flies down, serenading an audience member’s ex-boyfriend via her mobile phone.
The temperature may have dropped quickly but the band’s energy levels didn’t. Everybody was singing along to hit after hit like We Cry, a beautifully stripped back version of The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, For The First Time and several tracks from their new album #3 including Six Degrees of Separation and Millionaires.

It was just such a shame to see so many people leaving during the band’s well-deserved encore, closing the show with a cracking rendition of Hall of Fame.
