As soon as you think it’s over, we unearth another scrap of news regarding last November’s concert at Dublin’s Vicar Street. The concert is still the band’s most recent one, and was performed in the middle of recording their fifth album, “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee”.
Dreamchaser, who produces many of The Cranberries’ video works, including “Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “Beneath the Skin” has listed another entry in their list of “Previous Productions”. Yes, the Vicar Street gig is now on their resume according to a list maintained by Filmmakers Ireland. But this time, instead of listed as “commissioned by management”, the segment was recorded for MTV. Here’s the full listing, although it doesn’t contain any real new details:
“The Cranberries Live in Vicar Street ” Nov 2000 Half- hour Live music concert for MTV
Of course this wouldn’t be any new revelation if we had reports of it being broadcasted. However, we haven’t heard of any stations showing the short concert, even though it was a Preshow for the MTV Europe Awards. So that leaves one question — could this be aired at a later date in promotion for the new album? After all, the setlist did contain two brand new songs. And don’t forget to check out our photos of the concert if you haven’t already! (Link no longer available)
