The name “Cranberries” is popping up in several parts of the world at the moment, all for different reasons, so here’s a quick look at some of the things going on around the globe.
Mexican fans are among the very first to hear “Stars” played on the radio. Cranmty on the forums (from the Monterrey region) reports that the song’s tempo is slightly slower than that of the live versions posted on the Internet. The new track should be getting airplay in other places on the map very shortly.
French online ticket vendor TicketNet has begun selling seats for an upcoming show at the Rhenus in Strasbourg, France, scheduled for November 28th. Tickets cost 35.82 Euro.
Thanks to Stéphane for that bit.
MTV Italy has listed The Cranberries as part of their MTV Day 2002 celebration to take place on September 14th. The word is that the channel will be airing a live concert from the band in Bologna which will be free to concert goers (!).
Thanks to Lorenzo and Paolo for the tip on that one.
The official site has yet to confirm the French gig or the MTV Italy appearance, so be aware that none of this is permenant as of yet.
