The Script tells KZN fans: It’s going to be amazing!

“We can’t wait to come and do a show for you guys – it’s going to be amazing!” That’s the promise from Irish pop rock band The Script, who will be jetting into Durban later this week.

The band’s Glen Power says they have been rehearsing flat-out for 10 hours a day to make sure fans who will be joining them at Durban’s ICC this Friday (6 February 2015) have the time of their lives. “We can’t wait! We really can’t wait!” says Power.

The guys from The Script have been in SA before so on East Coast Breakfast this morning, Darren Maule and Natarah Nadesan decided to test their knowledge of South Africanisms – and he didn’t do too badly!
