MANILA, Philippines — Irish band The Script promised to deliver their "most interactive show" on their "Freedom Child Tour" and they did not fail their Filipino fans.

Back in Manila for the fourth time, frontman Danny O'Donoghue, guitarist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power surprised their fans as they climbed down the stage to perform with the crowd.

The Irish trio opened the show with their hit song "Superheroes."

The Filipino crowd went wild as the band started heading to the back of the Mall of Asia Arena during the middle of the set.

Bringing their keyboard and guitars down the stage, The Script played "If You Ever Come Back" and "Never Seen Anything Quite Like You" in the middle of the crowd in the patron area.

While Sheehan and Power returned to the stage, O'Donoghue further went through the lowerbox area while singing "The Energy Never Dies."

The Irish three-piece also performed their classic songs "The Man Who Can't Be Moved," "Nothing," "Breakeven" and new single "Rain." They closed the show with "Hall of Fame."

"The only way we can say thank you is to keep coming back again and again," O'Donoghue said bidding farewell to the Manila crowd, a Philippine flag wrapped around him.

During an interview with the media prior to the Saturday night show, The Script expressed their appreciation for Filipino fans during their previous shows in the country.

"Every time we have a tour and we come back to the Philippines, I just remember my ears ringing from the crowd just singing every song, every word," O'Donoghue said.

The Script is one of the world's most successful bands, having sold more than 29 million records. They have also scored three multi-platinum albums, all of which were number one in the United Kingdom.
