The Cranberries are few days away from their first show of the Roses world tour (Auckland, March 15). Let’s take a moment to look back at some of the most memorable performances of the January/February promo tour.

“There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” (OUI FM) – Pure magic!
For their first media performance in almost a decade, The Cranberries offered listeners a cover version of this Smiths song.

 

“Roses” (Le Figaro: Le Live) – Simple without being simplistic
This delicate haunting song instantly became a fan favorite with this performance. Noel’s beautiful music piece was a perfect fit for Dolores’ touching lyrics.

 

“Tomorrow” (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) – The US welcome back the Berries
For their big return on US television (first time in more than 10 years), the band chose to perform their current single in front of an ecstatic crowd… and show host!

 

“Raining in My Heart” (Soundcheck) – Sunshine for a cold February day
An heartfelt interpretation of – what could be – the band’s next single.

 

Tiny Desk Concert – Perfection
This whole performance is perfection. Nothing more, nothing less.

 

“Linger” (The Edge FM) – Three’s company
Dolores and Noel surprised us with a beautiful version of this Cranberries classic, with guest backvocals by Johanna Cranitch.

 

“Animal Instinct” (RTL2) – Another Classic
A nice flashback from Bury The Hatchet. It was great to hear this other Cranberries classic.

 

“Schizophrenic Playboys” (On Connaît la Musique – Europe 1) – Rock the house
Sadly, only one of the few times this great rock track was performed during the promo tour.

“In Between Days” (Taratata) – New Wave Berries
The band performed another cover – this time by The Cure – during their French promo tour.  Oulala, that was goooood!

    Schizo is the best imo but the cure cover is also brilliant hope to hear those 2 live in concert soon

    I would also add Rolling Stone session, it was so weird and unusual 🙂

    What about New Zealand dates ? It seems you just dont care about us, there are many events here by the way and nobody talks about them, i am a lil sad then

      Sorry about this, Natalie. The members of The Cranberries World love the fans from down under. We were a little bit busy with our personal lives in the last days (we do this as a hobby).

      But be sure to follow us on Twitter at @Cran_Press for lots of quick updates on the band, including some from their stay in NZ and Australia.
