March 26, 2002  |  Comments Off on Salamanca ticket issue resolved  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

After disappointed Spanish fans were turned away empty-handed from some ticket houses as El Corte Ingles for the upcoming Salamanca gig, the Cranberries Official Website has clarified the issue.

Shortly after we posted our news story, the official page even removed the link to ServiCaixa, the “official” ticket vendor. However, the link has now been replaced, with a note that tickets will go on sale on April 1st. So for all of those around Salamanca: the wait is only a little longer.

“Is there no honor among thieves?!” The answer to the age-old question: a resounding “no.” Those taking a gander at the new commerical bootleg titled “Wake Up Barcelona” may have found something faintly familiar…

“Oh yeah, if you noticed the front cover of that new bootleg, ‘Wake Up, Barcelona’ — Do you know if it’s available, ’cause I’d like to get it, well mainly because that awesome front cover (j/k). Geez – I wonder where they got it from? hmmmmm =)” – Adam of Zombieguide Concerts.

“Nice to see one of my own wallpapers on the cover of the new bootleg” – Norbert of Zombieguide Europe.

Below is the title page of Zombieguide Concerts and some wallpaper from Zombieguide Europe. Make your own conclusions. It’s a shame some people don’t appreciate the work that goes into this stuff but — well, it happens.

March 25, 2002  |  Comments Off on Treasure Box: individual album art  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

The official Italian Cranberries page CranberriesItalia has posted the first images of the individual albums to be included with “Treasure Box” in its international release next month. Here’s what the Italian page has to say:

“4 Classic Albums + 21 Bonus Tracks = 1 TREASURE BOX … the formula of the Cranberries is never as simple and as effective… in short, the collection of the first 9 years of musical activity of the band will be available in all the stores as Limerick’s “The Cranberries: Treasure Box”. The purpose of this 4CD box-set is clear and direct: to offer the opportunity to all fans to acquire all the complete work of the Cranberries from their first four albums in a single blow, including some B-sides and rarities no longer available on the market in other formats from now and long ago!! All four CDs (manufactured individually) will also be, in addition, available for purchase separately.”

“The date of release in stores is scheduled for the day of 8 April 2002 (and the 14 of May for North America, in conjunction with the beginning of The Cranberries’ tour in that continent). The cover of the Treasure Box is visible in the news published on Tuesday, 19 March.”

Salamanca gig cancelled?

March 23, 2002  |  Comments Off on Salamanca gig cancelled?  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Spanish fans looking to buy tickets for the newly-announced Salamanca, Spain, gig have gotten some disconcerting news (OK, bad pun). Those that have visited the online retailer El Corte Ingles have been told that ticket sales for the concert been suspended.

New bootleg: “Wake Up Barcelona”

March 23, 2002  |  Comments Off on New bootleg: “Wake Up Barcelona”  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Spanish fans browsing the stores such as “Revolver” in Barcelona can now find a brand new commercial bootleg titled “Wake Up Barcelona”. The new 2- disc set was audience-recorded on March 15th at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, Spain.

The art for the discs are nice, but as with almost any audience-recorded bootleg, the sound has several flaws. The overall quality is described as “not brilliant, but good.” However, the biggest disappointment is that “This is the Day” has been cut, as Dolores sings immediately when the track begins. Of course, the most obvious reason for this due to the recorder running out of tape. Nevertheless, it’s a forgivable mistake.
Now onto the tracks and scans:

Disc 1:
1. Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
2. Zombie
3. Analyse
4. Time is Ticking Out
5. Animal Instinct
6. You and Me
7. Ode to My Family
8. Just My Imagination
9. Loud and Clear
10. Desperate Andy
11. Pretty
12. When You’re Gone
13. I Can’t Be With You
14. Waltzing Back
15. Free to Decide

Disc 2:
16. Ridiculous Thoughts
17. Promises
18. Linger
19. I Really Hope
20. This is the Day
21. Dreams

Bonus Tracks:
22. Dreaming My Dreams (MTV Unplugged 1995)
23. Ode to My Family (MTV Unplugged 1995)
24. Linger (MTV Unplugged 1995)
25. Empty (MTV Unplugged 1995)

At a meeting of the Salsa de Arándanos Club this weekend, the official Mexican Cranberries fanclub, members were given more information pertaining to the band’s upcoming summer tour. Most of the new information was leaked from an interview with Fergal taken by local station Orbita 105.7. Members were told that the Cranberries will once again be playing at the National Auditorium in Mexico City on June 26th. The Guadalajara date was also confirmed, but no venue was given.

The club’s president could also confirm to Zombieguide Mexico’s webmaster Sigma, with a visit to their offices, that Fergal did in fact tell Orbita that the band plans to have Benedict Fenner produce their new material this summer. However, the station refused to give any more details regarding the interview, citing that listeners will be able to hear the full interview early next month.

Benedict Fenner to produce new material

March 15, 2002  |  Comments Off on Benedict Fenner to produce new material  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries Official Club in Mexico (Salsa de Arándanos Club) is reporting that the band has chosen Benedict Fenner to produce the band’s new material to be recorded this summer. The news is most likely a result of a telephone interview with drummer Fergal Lawler conducted by Mexican radio station Orbits 105.7 last week. The full interview is scheduled to broadcast sometime next month. The new material, to be recorded this summer, is assumed to be released as part of the band’s “Greatest Hits” disc sometime this fall.

Fenner (Laurie Anderson, Brian Eno, Elvis Costello) co-produced the band’s 1999 album “Bury the Hatchet.” Fenner, whose expertise lies in engineering, not producing, allowed the band to create a much more desired “raw” sound for their fourth work. His selection also allowed the band to have much more creative freedom with the sound and mechanics of the album.

Are The Cranberries planning to follow the same course of action all over again? We’ll have much more information on this topic as Zombieguide Mexico webmaster Sigma returns tomorrow from his Salsa de Arándanos Club meeting tomorrow, where they are expected to give out more details on the subject.

American television cable company Comcast will be airing concerts from both The Cranberries and The Corrs this Sunday to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I’ll toast to that! Here’s an excerpt from their press release:

PHILADELPHIA, March 13 /PRNewswire/ — This month, Comcast Original Programming celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with back-to-back concerts featuring Irish music sensations The Corrs and the Cranberries on Sunday, March 17 at 9 p.m.

Filmed before a sold-out audience at Dublin’s legendary Landsdowne Road Stadium, The Corrs — siblings Jim, Andrea, Caroline and Sharon Corr — showcase their blend of contemporary pop and rock sounds with traditional Irish musical styles. The band’s debut album, 1995’s “Forgiven Not Forgotten,” was a smash hit in Ireland, France, Canada, Norway, Japan, Denmark and Australia. The quartet’s platinum album, In Blue, features the hit single “Breathless,” which earned a 2001 Grammy Award nomination.

Wrapping up the evening, Comcast and Music Choice present The Cranberries in concert, performing past hits and new songs from their latest release, “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee.” Featured songs include the hit single “Analyse,” as well as favorites from previous albums such as “Linger” and “Zombie”. The concert was recorded at Vicar’s Street Pub in Dublin, Ireland. The quartet recently marked their 10th year in music with a tour promoting their new album.
