After Hurricane Sandy battered the East Coast, celebrities and musicians far and wide like Lady Gaga, Blink-182 and the cast of Jersey Shore did their part to help raise money for the relief efforts, which are still underway. The Script also fall into that category.
America has been so good to The Script that the trio felt obligated to help in any way they could. The tragedy also hit close to home, as drummer Glen Power has family that lives on Long Island. So what the native Dubliners did was move their December 5th concert at the Paramount theatre in Huntington up to November 8th, which frontman Danny O’Donoghue admits was “supposed to be a rest day.”
“How could we rest when so many were in such need? America has been so good to us and has enabled us to have a global career. We felt we had to do something to show our appreciation and give back and help,” he says.
All proceeds from the show, including merchandise and even the band’s fee are being donated to the Long Island Red Cross to benefit Sandy relief efforts on the island.
The Script will perform December 1st at the Lansdowne Pub on Night 1 of our Not So Silent Nights, find out how you can win your way in by clicking here. They last performed at the Lansdowne on December 9, 2010 for an intimate Mix Lounge performance…check out pictures from the show here!
