Dolores turns down “dirty” acting role

April 29, 2002  |  Comments Off on Dolores turns down “dirty” acting role  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan has made several hints in recent years that she would like to pursue a side project in acting. British-based news service Ananova reports today that she has already received several offers and has had to turn many of them down, mainly due to her packed touring schedule.

Her most recent offer came from Irish director Jim Sheridan. “The role he offered me was that of a really provocative woman whose every second word is something dirty,” she told the daily Lidove Noviny after the recent Prague gig. “Jim said he wants his character to be really sexy,” she added, which isn’t too far from what Dolores would like to be playing.

“I want to play some kind of femme fatale – curly hair, big breasts and a tight dress. I imagine it would be like ‘Hollywood! I’m here – Dolores O’Riordan in person!'”

The Cranberries Management attempts to buy fan domains

April 29, 2002  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries Management attempts to buy fan domains  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Management for The Cranberries, most notably Timeless Music, has just pulled out of an unsuccessful bidding negotiation to acquire the fan-owned domain name “www.the-cranberries.com.”

The Cranberries Tape Trader, which is currently situated at www.the- cranberries.com, is owned by Quebecoise fan Danny Kronstrom. Kronstrom, who has operated the Tape Trader since 1996, began leasing the domain in early 2000, with the lease expiring this May.

The Official Cranberries Website currently functions under two domain names, both the original www.cranberries.ie (in operation since January 1998) and www.cranberries.com, which was signed over from Island last year, who had held the address since the mid-1990’s. The band’s website is owned and operated completely independently of their record company.

After negotiating for two weeks over an unspecified sum, Kronstrom declined the offer and renewed his lease for the next two years.

CNN interview transcript

April 28, 2002  |  Comments Off on CNN interview transcript  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday, CNN Headline News aired an hourly “On the Road” segment featuring The Cranberries and highlighting the band’s upcoming North American tour. The “surprise” interview came as a bit of a shock to some (including yours truly), as Headline News is most likely the most-watched news channel in the United States. For those that missed it, we have the entire segment transcribed here:

Anchor: …A check of local news is next for many of you, and for others, music hits the road — The Cranberries want you to wake up and smell the coffee before time ticks out!

 

(A video clip of “Time is Ticking Out” plays and then switches to the song being played live during the band’s press tour last August. Fade out to commercial)

 

Anchor: The Cranberries have been on the music scene for more than a decade. The band just launched a new tour that it’s hoping will keep fans wrapped around its finger. They talked with JoAnn Sioux on this Music on the Road.

 

(Music on the Road intro. “Time is Ticking Out” video clip)

 

Dolores: We all grew up together and we met each other as teenagers and then we became celebrities together and then we became parents kind of at the same time. So, it was kind of nice, we’ve all gone through similar things at the same time.

 

Anchor: More than eleven years after they first formed in Ireland, The Cranberries are still hard at work, making music together.

 

(A video clip of “Time is Ticking Out” plays and then switches to the song being played live during the band’s press tour last August. )

 

Anchor: The band is on a world tour in support of “Wake Up And Smell The Coffee,” The Cranberries’ first new album in two years. And its a title that seems to reflect their state of mind.

 

(“Analyse” video clip)

 

Dolores: It’s kind of like I have an awakening that occurred right now in my life. Its kind of like I’ve just woken up and smelled the coffee.

 

Fergal: I think all of us have just become more relaxed and and we’re kind of trying mostly just to enjoy it and have fun as much as we can.

 

Anchor: Their guitar-driven pop sound and the distinctive vocals of Dolores O’Riordan helped The Cranberries break on the music scene in the early 1990s.

 

(“Free to Decide” live)

 

Anchor: After scoring a string hit singles early on and selling millions of albums, the band denied rumors a few years back of O’Riordan possibly leaving to pursue a solo career. These days, the Cranberries are happily together, doing what they love.

 

Dolores: As long as the fans are happy and people like our music and what not, as long as there’s a crowd to play to and it’s kind of worth our while going out there doing what we do…

 

Anchor: The Cranberries will swing through Montreal on May 10th before heading to Philadelphia, Boston, and New York.

 

(End of “Zombie” live)

Limerick Anniversary Concert date revealed

April 26, 2002  |  Comments Off on Limerick Anniversary Concert date revealed  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Tour shirts being sold on The Cranberries’ current European leg of the “Wake Up And Smell The Coffee” World Tour reveal a long-awaited tour date for the band’s hometown of Limerick, Ireland. Planning for a ten-year anniversary gig in Limerick has been in the works for several months, as the band has not played on their home turf since late 1993.

The shirts list August 3rd, 2002 as the date for the event. The date has yet to be listed by the constantly-updated itinerary found on the band’s official website, but the odds of printing T-shirts with “unconfirmed” tour dates are next to nothing. Organizers expect the large-scale concert to take place at the newly-constructed Limerick Racecourse in Patrickswell. No word yet on what other events will coincide with the ten-year anniversary festivities, but the sheer thought of it makes us giddy! Stay tuned to Zombieguide for the latest updates on this event.

Thanks to Susan Bakker for the news.
