Media reports out of Italy this morning confirm that Dolores O’Riordan will perform at the newly reorganized 2006 Concerto di Natale in Monaco, formerly called the Vatican Christmas Concert.

This year’s concert will take place on December 9, 2006, at 18:00 at the Grimaldi Forum, Monte Carlo, Monaco. Tickets range in price from €150 to €1000.

The Vatican Christmas Concert ran for 13 years at the Vatican before Pope Benedict XVI cancelled it earlier this year, stating that he didn’t like pop music. This year’s concert will be moving to Monte Carlo, Monaco under a new organizer.

The annual concert is broadcast nationally on TV in Italy, but this year’s concert will be shown by Raidue instead of Mediaset.

Confirmed so far to perform are:
Gipsy Kings
Ronan Keating (of Boyzone)
Skin (of Skunk Anansie)
Dolores O’Riordan (of The Cranberries)
Nicky Nicolai & Stefani Di Battista
Helena Hellwigg
Massimo Ranieri
Sergio Cammariere
Gigi D’Alessio
Andrea Mingardi
Marco Masini / Umberto Tozzi
Benedict Gospel Choir
Summertime Gospel Choir
Les petits chanteurs de Monaco
Giancarlo Giannini

This will be Dolores’s fourth time performing at the concert — her past appearances were in 2001, 2002, and 2005.
