The Script were forced to cancel their concert in Melbourne tonight (11.10.14) after the stage collapsed.

The 'Superheroes' hitmakers have had to pull out of their gig as part of their promotional tour after the area they were supposed to be performing on gave way.

Taking to Twitter, the Irish boy band broke the devastating news to their fans by writing: ''So sorry we can't play tonight. The stage collapsed, thank God nobody was hurt. We'll be back soon. Sorry everyone.''

The group - consisting of Danny O'Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power - are yet to announce whether they will re-schedule the show for a later date.

However, just days before the disaster struck, the band were tweeting their excitement about playing their only gig in the Victoria capital this year.

They wrote on their official account: ''Excited 2 b playin our only Melbourne show this year: Sat 11 Oct @mrctracknews as part of #CaulfieldGuineas (sic).''

The 'Together We Cry' singers flew to Australia on Wednesday (08.10.14), before catching a flight from Melbourne to Sydney to perform as part of the Beck Caulfield Guineas race day, but all of the travelling has been proving very difficult for the popular trio.

Tweeting yesterday morning (10.10.14), they said: ''This Jetlag is a killer! Cant sleep past 6am!!! Ahhhhhhhh (sic).''
