Dublin trio The Script took to Dublin’s 3Arena this weekend for three homecoming gigs. None other than Christy Dignam took to the stage with them on Friday night. Dignam joined the band on stage to perform his legendary hit ‘Crazy World’.
The band were also joined by the ‘High Hopes Choir’ to perform their latest single ‘Arms Open’, which was received to huge applause. The choir also joined the band on Saturday night, where they performed The Script’s ‘Paint The Town Green’.
The Script said the following in a statement after the gigs:
‘We wanted to have special moments that felt different every night for our audience. The High Hopes Choir really help us shine a light on the homeless situation in Ireland, all of whom have been affected by homelessness. Being able to invite them on our stage and sing our song ‘Arms Open’ with us really help us drive that point home. Having Dublin’s own homegrown legend Christy Dignam, join us for a rendition of ‘Crazy World’ on night two was the pinnacle for all of us.’
‘We didn’t know how we could top that, so on the final night we decided to bring in The Hit Machine to give the audience a fully immersive musical experience. Fair play to the lads, who rolled with the punches and our mad creativity, to help us turn around two performances, ‘Paint The Town Green’ and ‘Hall Of Fame’ in just a soundcheck before the show.’
‘It was amazing to see so many people from all over the World come and see us play a hometown show, because there’s nowhere else in the World that they’ll feel more at home than in Dublin City.’
The Script’s ‘The Freedom Child’ tour continues throughout this week in the UK. They are set to play eight more gigs in the UK.
