The Cranberries started the first North American leg of the Roses Tour yesterday in New York City. The band played Terminal 5 on Wednesday with a setlist identical to their latest Oceania/Asia Greatest Hits shows from last March and April.
The same five tracks from “Roses” were performed (“Astral Projections” still out!!) as well as their collection of older hits and usual non-single tracks. A setlist to please the general public and the occasional fans.Those who hoped for a fresher set -one that would have been much different from the 2009 Reunion Tour- will be disappointed. The band seems to have chosen continuity over diversity.
But one thing that will please all fans is the performance quality that the band delivers on this tour. Here’s a taste of what you’ll get to enjoy in the next weeks in a city near you!
