The Cranberries cancel remaining 2001 promotion

October 12, 2001  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries cancel remaining 2001 promotion  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

In a letter of explanation on The Cranberries Official Webpage, Dolores has unfortunately cancelled the remainder of the band’s promo tour for the rest of 2001. “Life is a precious gift not to be taken for granted and obviously with the International Coalition action in Afghanistan,” she writes, “and all of the strange co-incidents, (anthrax etc), it is not worth the risk of travelling around.”

The band had originally planned to do promotion until December.

The Cranberries of Prat has posted some scans from an interview in the Spanish magazine “Top Music”. Check them out below.

The Cranberries of Prat also has some great comparison shots of the edited and unedited versions of “Analyse” in their news section, which are certainly worth the look. In related news, the new edited version of “Analyse” is currently airing on VH1 in the United States, usually late at night on “Insomniac Music Marathon”. If you can’t afford the lack of sleep, VCR timers perform handily in these situations…

The Cranberries perform Oceanic Remix live on CD:UK

October 6, 2001  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries perform Oceanic Remix live on CD:UK  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Earlier today on the British TV station CD:UK, The Cranberries made their first public performance of a live version of “Analyse: The Oceanic Remix”. The performance was broadcasted live (not pre-recorded). Five people were on stage, including Dolores (without an instrument), Noel on guitar, Russel Burton on keyboards, Fergal on drums, and Declan Hogan, who substituted for Mike on bass. For those unfamiliar with the name, Declan was featured on the “Technician’s Documentary” on the DVD “Beneath the Skin”. Backing vocalist Steve DeMarchi was not present. However, only Dolores’s vocals were live — the remixed backing track was pre-recorded. Because it was broadcasted live, Dolores’s vocals were “slightly wobbly” at first, but picked up soon.

And, in the event that Joan Rivers is reading this, Dolores wore a long white dress with leopard print stilletos. The performance was one of the band’s first appearances on British TV since April 1999’s TOTP performance.

For those in the UK, remember the Top of the Pops performance is currently due to air on Friday, 26th October 2001 on BBC1, at 7:30 pm. Thanks to Daniel Robert James Steward for the info — be sure to check out his page, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee Unofficial Fansite.

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

October 5, 2001  |  Comments Off on Mike absent from European Promo Tour due to wife’s expectancy  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

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.

October 1, 2001  |  Comments Off on Dolores on cover of “Sunday Magazine”  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Dolores is on the cover of the September 30th edition of the Australian publication “Sunday Magazine”. The just-released issue contains a 4-page feature on the band (which includes a one-and-a-half page spread photo). Here’s a small excerpt from the article…

DOLORES O’RIORDAN of THE CRANBERRIES – at age 20, the world was singing along to her plaintive lyrics. But life on a pedestal soon became more than she could bear, she opted out of the fame game and found salvation close to home (a husband and two little ones)… now, the band is set to go again… new album and tour and Dolores is coping much better!
