“Hi, How;s it going?,

We are in Cadiz in the South of Spain. We were supposed to play the Esparrago Festival last night(15th April) but unfortunately the promoter cancelled the show because of the weather. We were all sitting in the lobby of the hotel, ready to go when our tour manager walked in and said that he was talking to the promoter and that it was unsafe to play the concert as the wind and rain were blowing directly onto the stage and there was a danger of electrocution. So, we said we would wait here until today(16th April) to see if conditions improved and we might be able to play this afternoon, but we’ve just been told that it’s not going to happen.

I feel really bad for all the people who were camping out.Our crew were down at the festival site all day yesterday and they said the mud and water was everywhere.So, our appologies to you if you were there, but I’m afraid the only person to blame is Mother Nature! Hopefully we can come back to Spain later this year and play somewhere else!

Well, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, hopefully I’ll have better stuff to talk about next time,

talk to you soon,
Fergal.

How goes it out there in ‘Berry-land?

I’m sitting in our dressing room in Mexico City; last night’s show went great, we really had a ball! Brilliant audience here, as expected. Although I must apologise to all of you, as you had to wait for a few hours. Half of our equipment was stuck at customs in Miami and it didn’t arrive here ’till 8:00 and we had to delay the show ’till 9:00. But I was speaking afterwards to some people who had seen the show and they all said it was great. So hopefully tonight will be as good if not better (there’s always room for improvement!!!!).

There is a camera crew filming tonight also, because the two shows here were sold out and there were many people who couldn’t get tickets, so this is for you!! It will be shown soon on T.V. Azteca so watch out for it.

. Myself and Mike and Russ (our keyboardist) went out to the Pyramids here yesterday and it was amazing. We had a really cool guide called “Il Gorilla” who took us around for two hours, and then we had lunch with his family and friends. REAL Mexican food, nice and spicy yummm!! Dolores went out there today with her husband and they said that they really enjoyed it too.

Before we got here we were in Puerto Rico for the first time. We arrived there on Wednesday night and we did a quick rehearsal on Thursday. A few of us went out to Old San Juan with some friends that work with us, and did a bit of a pub-crawl; it reminded me a little bit of New Orleans, although everyone we met said it’s much better at weekends. Friday night was the gig, our first in a few months, and to be honest we had a really tough time because the sound on stage was crap. There was a deep “wooooh”type of drone going on for the whole show. Everyone was a bit pissed off afterwards because we thought the audience could hear it too, but luckily we spoke to a lot of people who said there was great sound out front, so that helped cheer us up!

Ok. I’d better go and start warming up as we are on in less than an hour, so I’ll talk to you soon,

‘Bye,
Fergal

Apr 14th 2000

The Cranberries returned to Ireland yesterday after three consecutive sold-out shows (in Puerto Rico and Mexico City).

The band returned to the road for their first performances in 4 months. Their equipment arrived late to Mexico City and the concert was delayed by 2 hours as the equipment arrived 30 minutes after the show was to begin at 7:00pm.
The audience response was intense and they sang almost every song for all three shows. The band experienced sound problems on-stage in Puerto Rico, but the sound out front was better then ever for all three shows. A new front-of-house sound engineer is working for the band who has previously worked for U2 and REM.

The DVD and Video cassette of “Beneath The Skin: Live In Paris” release has been delayed due to editing and authoring the DVD menu. It looks like August or September will be the new release date. The audio can be previewed next week, with the release of “Bury The Hatchet – The Complete Sessions” which hits the stores on 17 April 2000. Seven tracks are taken from the show, which was recorded in Paris last December.

Fans in Spain have been hearing “Dreams” in two commercials and the record company has added the single to the “Bury The Hatchet” album as a bonus disc. The album has re-entered the charts over the last two weeks rising to #20, after 51 weeks of release.

The 2000 Tour schedule has been updated and posted. Stay tuned for more updates.

Mexico City Gig Review

April 11, 2000  |  Comments Off on Mexico City Gig Review  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The band has just completed one their Mexico City gigs. A good mixture of old and new songs were done, but no new songs, as presumed before. The following review was written thanks to David Marquez

“I went to yesterday’s Cranberries concert in Mexico City, and I’d like to share my experience with you. I’ve been a Cran fan since the “Everybody else is doing it…” album release in Mexico, and have been listening to them since then. I also went to their first Mexico City concert when they were touring with the “No need to argue” album.
My girlfriend works at a local radio station, so she got us “Meet and Greet” tickets, so we could go to the aftershow “party” with the band. I was really excited about this so i took along with me the booklets from all their official albums so i could have them signed.
The concert started 1:30 hour late, because they had their equipment stopped at customs, but the waiting was worth. They played lots of Bury the Hatchet songs, starting the concert with Promises, but they also played Animal Instinct, Just my Imagination, Desperat Anda (whicha was really cool!), they did Delilah, and also Dying in the Sun. I was very happy because they played my all time favorite song: “Can’t be with you”, which in my opinion, along with Fleetwood Mac’s “Go your own way” were the best songs of the concert. They also played songs from the first album: Linger, Pretty (which i personally don’t like too much), Wanted (payed in a very fast tempo, sounds great!) and ended the concert with Dreams. The concert lasted 2:07 hours exactly.

There’s one thing i’d like to know your opinion: I think Dolores sucks big time as a dancer. There were several songs in which she “danced” and she looked very goofy, she has absolutely no rythm!!!

After the concert ended, we were taken backstage where we met them. I was AMAZED by Dolores cuteness. I can tell you that I didn’t think that Dolores was pretty. From all the photographs I’ve seen of her in my whole cran fan time, none of them reflects Dolores real beauty. My girlfriend and I had chance to speak a little bit with Dolores and Feargal, (they were supposed to be there only for 10 minutes) and Dolores (she’s so beautiful!) told us that she was amazed on how we’ll we spoke in english, we asked her to autograph our cd booklets and she kindly did, she asked us on our opinion on the concert, which we told her had been lots of fun, and then we asked her on what she thought about Mexico (maybe an obvious and stupid question) to which she answered she was very intrigued and interested by Mexican Culture, and that she’d like to have more time to visit some of the most important ancient sites in Mexico. I have to tell you that i couldn’t really pay much attention to what she said, becasue as I told you, she really is beautiful, and I just kept staring at her. Then we spoke with Feargal, he also asked us our opinion on the concert, he said that he had to play on rented equipment, because his drum set was never released by customs, then he told us that they were releasing a “Bury the Hatchet” rerealease, but with the complete session, meaning that all of the b-sides from that album would be available. They also said that they would record a new album to be released in the first months of 2001. We took a picture with the whole band, which as soon as i develop the film, i’ll send it to the list. I also have pictures (which I think may be good) of Dolores alone, and the band members alone, which I will also send them to you if you want to. The concert was lots of fun and brought me back lots of good memories by listening to old Cran songs. I was much more of a fan by the time i went to their first visit to Mexico, but nevertheless, i can tell you that meeting them made me very happy. If you ever have the chance to see Dolores, face to face (not on stage), you’ll be amazed by her simple beauty.

David Marquez”

Espárrago Rock 2000

April 10, 2000  |  Comments Off on Espárrago Rock 2000  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries’ playing time for the Espárrago Rock Festival, which will take place this Saturday in Spain has been confirmed. The band will play at an astounding 1:30 in the morning, one of the last bands to perform. They follow Skunk Anansie, which performs at 11:15 (So I suppose that means the Crans technically play on Sunday?)

Chunky News Bits

April 6, 2000  |  Comments Off on Chunky News Bits  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The pretty Cranberries has posted a nice set of news bits, coming from a recent chat of the band at the Mexican page El Foco (“The Center”). The following has been confirmed:

-Album #5 is currently slated for a June 2001 Release
-The fifth album will include a 4-string quartet, as seen in the first few albums
-The band has finally gained full rights to the “Uncertain” EP and is considering including the tracks in an upcoming B-Sides/Rarities compilation (Can we say “Odd Bits & Hits”?)
-There has been quite a stir recently (ie “The Cranberries Revolution”) about MTV’s refusal to play “You and Me”. The band is not concerned, as there are many other ways to present their music.
-Dolores is still considering making a film when she gets time off from touring
-Fergal is in favor of MP3’s on the Internet, but Dolores is against it (Interesting… we all know Fergal can’t afford the real CD’s!)
-Fergal is very happy with the birth of his son
-They do not consider their music Celtic
-The band doesn’t think they are competeing with U2, as the only thing they have in common is their origin
-Dolores is planning on changing her hair again…. (so what’s new?)

“Dreams” Spanish Promo

Thanks to The pretty Cranberries, we now have scans of that newly-issed “Dreams” promo in Spain. Now why they would re-issue a single for an eight-year-old song, I don’t know, but I guess it still has enough demand that radio stations can still play it.
