International act The Script sold out at the Spa Bridlington in less than two hours as 3,800 tickets were snapped up in record time for their gig on Friday July 12.
The Script first shot to fame five years ago with ‘We Cry’ and ‘The Man Who Can’t be Moved’ before hitting the big time in the States, then conquering everywhere from Asia to South Africa.
Now frontman Danny O’Donoghue is entertaining TV audiences every week on the popular BBC talent contest, The Voice.
The gig at The Spa is the only venue of its kind the band will play before they embark on a worldwide tour that looks guaranteed to sell out globally.
Andrew Aldis, general manager of the Spa, said: “It was quite a morning at The Spa Bridlington – our entire team played their part to ensure a smooth operation.
“I’m immensely proud of everyone. It’s fantastic to think that 3,800 people are going to have a unique experience in July – with unparalleled intimacy.
“Everyone who queued outside was rewarded by getting the tickets they wanted.
“The team at The Spa Bridlington would like to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm.
“And there’s more to announce in the coming months.”
The band’s Spa date follows a string of recent big names, including the Kaiser Chiefs, The xx and Jack White.
