Danny O'Donoghue too famous for festival fun

The Script star Danny O'donoghue is often left behind by his bandmates during their free time at music festivals because the singer gets mobbed by fans.

The Irish rockers have won a huge fanbase around the world since their first album was released in 2008, but O'Donoghue's star rose even further after he became a coach on U.K. TV talent show The Voice.

The band headlined Britain's Isle of Wight festival on Sunday (16Jun13), but members Mark Sheehan and Glen Power insisted their frontman was now too well known to enjoy the festivities.

Sheehan tells Absolute Radio, "We feel sorry for him, you know. We can go out into the festival, get some food and go out on some of the rides but Danny wouldn't be able to do that.

"He's been catapulted into the limelight. He really can't go anywhere. I almost hate going to the local (pub) with him. He often turns to disguises. He's got this flat cap that he wears a lot but that doesn't work. He's like Godzilla - he's too tall."
