Live Shows - Script Surge

08/Mar/2013

Following their 3-night stint at the O2 Dublin, The Script leap from No14 to No2 on this week’s Album Chart with their former No1 ‘#3’ – but they fail to dislodge Emeli Sandé who takes a fifth week at the top with ‘Our Version Of Events’.


Hot on the heels of their ‘Pompeii’ single which debuted at No2 last week, Bastille have this week’s highest new entry at No5 with their first album release ‘Bad Blood’ – the first of five new entries in this week’s Top 20. Josh Ritter is new at No10 with his seventh studio album ‘The Beast In Its Tracks’, his fifth consecutive Top 10 album in Ireland, a run that started in 2003 with ‘Hello Starling’ which peaked at No2. The third new entry is at No13 for Stereophonics with the first release on their own Stylus Records label ‘Graffiti On the Train’. This is their eighth studio album in sixteen years, and three of the previous seven were No1 albums in Ireland – ‘Just Enough Education To Perform’ (2001), ‘You Gotta Go There To Come Back’ (2003) and ‘Language. Sex. Violence. Other?’ in 2005. The final two new entries come in at No14 and No15: Dido’s first new album in five years ‘Girl Who Got Away’ and Laura Mvula’s debut release ‘Sing To The Moon’.

Passenger holds for a second week at No1 on the Irish Singles Chart with ‘Let Her Go’, extending his lead over Bastille who take a second week at No2 with ‘Pompeii’. The Script emulate their Album Chart success with this week’s highest climbing single ‘If You Could See Me Now’, up twenty-six places from No39 to No13. The sole new entry in this week’s chart is at No20 for Disney Channel star Bridgit Mendler with her debut solo release ‘Ready Or Not’.
