article imageReview: The Script puts on high-energy show at Hammerstein Ballroom Special

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 4, 2014 in Music
Acclaimed rock group The Script took over New York's Hammerstein's Ballroom on October 1, and it was a fun, high-energy concert.
They opened their set with the upbeat "Paint the Town Green," as the stage was appropriately graced in light green lights. They had their fans jumping in their seats during this up-tempo vocal.
It was followed by "Before the Worst" and their latest radio single "Superheroes" from their newest album No Sound Without Silence. Lead singer Danny O' Donoghue had the crowd with him every step of the way throughout the entire night.
The entire venue was singing the lyrics to "Breakeven" back to them, as O'Donoghue rocked the keyboards. Other impressive vocals were "Man on a Wire," "The Man Who Can't Be Moved," but my personal favorite song of theirs is "Nothing." I love the part how O' Donoghue makes a fan call an ex and he serenades that song to them. It was just as cool when they did it in the same fashion at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater this past summer.
They closed their set with their popular hit "For the First Time," and returned for two encore songs that included "You Won't Feel a Thing" and the infectious, piano-driven "Hall of Fame." The audience loved it when O' Donoghue went into the crowd during the last song.
The Verdict
Overall, The Script were awesome yet again this year. This marked my second time seeing them and they are worth seeing again. They know how to give the fans a great time, and they are all about the music. Their show garnered two thumbs up.
