The Script Crosses Arena Epics With Boy Band Libido at Fillmore Miami Beach October 7

The Fillmore Miami Beach is the Magic City's go-to room for artists with mid-size audiences. So while The Script may not have the same voracious following in South Florida as it does in Europe and South America, the "celtic soul" pop-rock group may feel more at home at the American Airlines Arena.

By crossing the feel-good alt-rock epics of U2 with R&B-savvy production, boy-band-worthy good looks, and sensitive, voice-of-an-angel singing, it ain't no thang for The Script to spend an evening serenading 50,000 screaming females.

Drawing from a long tradition (including but not limited to Elvis, The Beatles, David Cassidy, Mötley Crüe, and The Backstreet Boys) of driving heterosexual women out of their minds, The Script made it clear they had the formula down pat with their 2009 self-titled debut and ultra-sensitive single, "We Cry."

The clean production, thoughtful nice-guy lyrics, and soaring string-laden chorus combine for a package that appeals to boy-crazy teens and desperate housewives alike.

And hey, if the million-dollar sex appeal ain't broken, why fix it? This Dublin three-piece's latest record, Science & Faith continues to sell massive quantites of Goo-Goo-Dolls-in-2011 soft rock that keeps the ladies coming back.

The Script's Science and Faith Tour with Hot Chelle Rae. Friday, October 7. Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $33.50 plus fees via livenation.com. Call 305-673-7300 or visit fillmoremb.com.
