From TV concerts to online polls, The Cranberries are no strangers to St. Patrick’s Day celebrations when they involve music, and this year is no different. Next week on BBC 6 Music’s “Dream Ticket” concert broadcast, The Cranberries will be part of an All-Irish Rock special on St. Patrick’s Day.
“Dream Ticket” showcases past concerts from five notable artists daily in a gala that lasts for several hours. The Cranberries will be joining Sinead O’Connor, among others on next week’s billing. It is unknown which of The Cranberries’ past recorded concerts will be used, but British festivals are favorite choices, so something along the lines of the all-acoustic Fleadh Festival 1994 performance can be expected.
For those not in the UK, the concert will be streamed live from BBC 6 Music’s website. The show begins Monday, March 17 at 10:00 PM local time (5:00 PM EST). For those fortunate enough to be in the UK, the audio channel can be heard on Sky Digital. If you miss the broadcast, don’t worry, an archived on-demand version of the stream will be available on BBC 6 Music’s websitethe following week.
