The Script have continued their ascent to the summit of the pop world by announcing details of a 12-date arena tour in 2013, taking in shows at Dublin's O2 and the Odyssey Arena in Belfast along the way.

Danny and the boys' third album, which after much presumed deliberation they called #3, is currently flying high in the charts and that followed the success of chart-topping single 'Hall of Fame', which featured former Black Eyed Pea on guest vocals.

The lads will undertake a tour of the US in November, before starting plans on their fourth album (#4?) next year.
