Dolores name was taken off the official Concerto di natale website. Her presence is no longer confirmed.
Back from Lille tonight where we identified 3 highlights of the show:
- First one was when The Cranberries played Sunday, a song rarely played on this leg and tonight was the 3rd time on the whole European tour (première was in Bucharest). We’re sorry we didn’t record the song as we didn’t see this one coming.
- Second one was Empty which, just like Sunday, has not been played a lot on this this tour (première in Madrid). See the video below.
- And the third highlight was of course Promises, requested by a few fans in the front row, which has only be played on request on this tour (première in Barcelona). This one we didn’t film as we wanted to enjoy it as much as we could.
As promised here come 2 songs in 1 video recorded at Le Zénith in Paris yesterday. As you now know The Cranberries made a rather special and unusual encore for the first death anniversary of Dolores’ father.
My fellow fans on French forum Pretty Dolores also contributed in making this encore special with me by giving people in the front rows 200 roses to hold in the air.
What a special show tonight in a sold out Zénith in Paris. As you may or may not know, this show took place on the 1st death anniversary of Dolores’ father.
As a consequence The Cranberries played a very unusual show starting with the Analyse setlist we know (see below), but dedicated most of the Encore to this anniversary.
Back from Lyon where we attended a more intimate show than expected. Only 5000 in a 15 000 people venue. The stage was moved closer to the seated area so that we couldn’t perceive any empty space at all. Good point. Excellent band & crowd on that night, we really enjoyed the great atmosphere. As Dolores said “Lyon totally rocks”. Watch her “oleee oleeee oleeee oleeee”!
Surprising news, but nonetheless true.
From what we understood after talking to different members of The Cranberries road crew during the last couple of gigs, things have become quite complicated in the last days. It seems that the “Zénith de Paris” is now putting a spoke in the band’s wheel, so much that there might not be any DVD at all!!!
