The lowdown What: The Script Where: Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, Festival Park When: Friday February 22
Energetic Irish pop rockers The Script were on fire during the Friday night finale of the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, with lanky frontman Danny O’Donoghue’s immense stage presence on full power throughout the gig. Fireworks lit up the Dubai skyline before the trio made their entrance to the roars of fans. The Dublin trio didn’t disappoint the hit-hungry crowd, playing all their biggest tracks, including ‘Breakeven’, ‘Six Degrees of Separation’, ‘Nothing’, ‘If You Ever Come Back’ and ‘For the First Time’, before exiting the stage momentarily to drum up encore excitement, then ending the evening with crowd-pleaser Hall of Fame, minus one Will.I.am. A strong finish for the nine-day fest.
