The Script set to perform in Dubai

Organisers of next year's Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival have confirmed The Script will take part in the event.

The Irish band have shot to fame in recent years thanks to their catchy pop tunes and they have started to build a global fanbase.

They have performed in the UAE before and Tabloid! reveals that they will join the likes of Deep Purple, Three Doors Down and OneRepublic at the jazz extravaganza in February.

Frontman Danny O'Donoghue will be familiar to a lot of Britons, as he has appeared on popular BBC One show The Voice.

Chief executive officer at Chillout Productions - the organisation behind the festival - Anthony Younes told the news provider that he was delighted to welcome the Dubliners to the Gulf.

"They are beautiful. We are very excited to bring The Script as they have been here before and did a great job," he was quoted as saying.

"The Script will play on the final day of the festival on February 22nd. Their concert will be bigger and better than their last especially after their collaboration with on the song Hall of Fame."

It has certainly been a rollercoaster few years for The Script since they launched their self-titled debut album.

The record went platinum in Australia, twice platinum in the UK and an incredible five-times platinum in their homeland Ireland.

Their second album Science & Faith also entered the UK charts at number one.

Next year's arena tour of the UK also sold out within a week, which shows just how popular the trio are at the moment.

This is yet another coup for Dubai and a clear example of the emirate's ability to attract the hottest names in music.

The Script will be one of many top-class acts to take to the stage in the city in 2013, with The Stone Roses also expected to appear in Dubai.

In addition to this, the likes of Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg are set to put on live shows before the end of 2012.
