Mike absent from European Promo Tour due to wife’s expectancy

Zombieguide reader Dan Le Palud was able to attend the live taping of Hit- Machine in Paris earlier this week, and he brings us this report.

The Cranberries were the first band to play for the show. Bassist Mike Hogan was absent from the performance, while the band arranged for a temporary replacement to play bass during the gig. He is at home with his wife, as they are expecting their first baby within the next few weeks, according to a radio interview with Dolores days ago. Mike’s brother Noel, however, has returned now for the European leg of the promotion and was on guitar on stage. He had been absent from the American touring in August due to the illness of his daughter.

“Dolores was absolutely amazing with a long black dress,” Dan comments, “and ‘Analyse’ sounded more ‘rock’.”

The episode of Hit-Machine will broadcast on Saturday, October 13th on M6 at 10:30 AM (Paris).

Thanks to Dan and Jessica from Holland for the info.
