Hello there,

We are still at home in Limerick, although we are working!!! We did a press conference here the day before yesterday to announce our first Irish concert since 1994. (That will be Millstreet, Co. Cork, Dec 11th) We are really looking forward to it as it is always very special to play in our home country. There are always lots of family and friends so it makes for a very emotional night.

I have some more good news which is that there are some more Cranberry babies on the way!!!!! Noel’s wife is expecting twins in February and my wife is expecting a week later. Woo Hoo!!!! It’s an experience I can’t wait for especially after spending time with Dolores’ son.

We travel to Paris on Monday for a few days to do some T.V. shows and then we are off to Milan, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Madrid and various parts of Germany.

Doing T.V. shows is a completely different thing from doing a live concert because you are not in control of everything, but that can add to the excitement which is always good thing.

I’ll talk to you soon as now I am going to watch Ireland play Australia in the Rugby World Cup..

See ya later,

Fergal.”

A press release has been posted on the Cranberries Official page. Check it out:

“PRESS RELEASE!

It is over four years since the Cranberries last played in their home country, and with over 150,000 Irish album sales under their belt, the band announced today that they will conclude their European tour in MILL STREET, CO. CORK on 11th (Correction!) December 1999. 22nd October sees the Irish release of “Just My Imagination”, the third single taken from the band’s current album ‘Bury The Hatchet’ which has sold in excess of two and a half million copies worldwide, and hit the number one spot in eleven countries.

The video for the new single “Just My Imagination” was directed by American director Phil Harder and shot on location in Ireland, and Irish viewers will be the first in the world to see it.

The band have just returned from a triumphant American tour: “…. O’Riordan sang the melancholic ‘Dying in the Sun’, it was a moment of intense vulnerability that left you pining for more’ (Hollywood Reporter on final US date). The European tour will be the biggest tour by a major rock group this fall, dates are selling out all over the continent.

Tickets for the Mill St concert go on sale Saturday 9th October, and are available through all the usual outlets. Tickets are priced at £22.50 (+ subject to the usual booking fee).”

Every once in awhile, you stumble upon something quirky that sticks out in your mind. Check out this Bury the Hatchet Promo CD-ROM from Italy!

Also, I found out that not only is there an Asian version of BTH that comes with a white and blue mug, but there’s also another version that comes with a BTH clock! And yes, this is an official item, not that generic “Picture Disc Clock”. If you are really interested in purchasing either version, they sell them along with other mega-rare items at www.eil.com
