A few videos of the Roses Tour 2012 recorded by ourselves

November 13, 2012  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

As promised in a recent news, Cranberries World team members try to film one song at each show we’re attending. We choose the songs according to what we think is a key moment of the show, or on your request. Be sure our crew does its best and we can’t guarantee success every time as camera policy totally varies one venue to another. We’re rarely meeting any problem though with the compact photo camera we’re using for these videos. However please keep in mind that filming a whole show is not legal. In addition, “audience filming” prevents those who film from enjoying the show as one may thus focus more on the screen of the camera than the concert itself. No need to say that we, at Cranberries World, do want to enjoy the show first (probably like all of us).
We thus hope you enjoy these small bits of the shows ūüôā

Below are new videos as well as some old ones you may already know.

The Cranberries played “Electric Blue”!

November 10, 2012  |  6 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

Tonight, the Cranberries offered a “safe” setlist to the Caen crowd and the future Concert Live CD-set listeners… until they surprised fans with a flute-playing Dolores on “Electric Blue”!

The band used their “Dreams”-to-“Salvation” setlist, which includes mostly older hits from the 90’s. This setlist is similar to the one performed on most Asian/North American concerts last spring.

A few changes were made though, including “Electric Blue”, on which Dolores played the flute!! Earlier today, a member of the Cranberriesword team who attended tonight’s show reported that fans heard the band rehearse “Electric Blue” a few times this afternoon.

Fan-favorite “Twenty-One” was also performed, while more recent material like “Show Me” and “Astral Projections” was kept out of the setlist, for tonight’s recorded show.

On the bright side, fans who buy the Cd-set will get the first professional recording of “Raining in My Heart” (other than the acoustic version performed several times on last winter promo tour). Let’s hope that the Paris DVD recording will actually happen though and that more Roses tracks will be performed (and recorded) there.

 

You can buy the 2-CD set of the Caen show on the¬†Concert Live website¬†(the encore will be included on CD2, unlike if you bought it on-site). The CD sets of last month’s London show and of three 2010 concerts (Paris, London, Milano) are also still available online.

Here’s the Caen setlist:

Dreams
Linger
When You’re Gone
Tomorrow
How
Animal Instinct
Just My Imagination
You And Me
Put Me Down
Twenty One
Analyse
Desperate Andy
I Can’t Be With You
Interlude (Shattered instrumental)
Waltzing Back
Raining In My Heart
Free To Decide
Schizophrenic Playboys
Ridiculous Thoughts
Zombie

Conduct
Losing My Mind
Electric Blue
Salvation

The X Factor contestant covers “Dreams”

November 7, 2012  |  1 Comments  |  by Jury  |  Other News

Bella Ferraro, an aspiring singer from the Australian version of the popular talent show The X Factor, covered The Cranberries’ classic hit “Dreams” during the last show on November 5th.

The theme of the last week’s competition was Judges’ Challenge, and the song “Dreams” was chosen by Melanie Brown of the Spice Girls fame.

You can see Bella Ferraro’s rendition of the Cranberries classic here:

Apparently, the judges loved her performance. According to the young singer, she grew up singing The Cranberries songs.

It’s interesting to mention that Ronan Keating, one of the judges and an Irishman himself, said some nice things about the song: “I love that song. I don’t know if people realize this but that is so tough to sing. That is such a tough song. Dolores is an amazing vocalist. Great Irish band, actually. Good song choice, well done!”

Thanks to kike for the news!

DVD to be filmed in Paris? + random news

November 5, 2012  |  16 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries are apparently set to record their next DVD at the Paris Z√©nith this month, according to some member of the band’s road team.

This could explain the mysterious “DVD Set List” inscription on the Luxembourg setlist sheet we reported a few days ago. The ‘berries could have practice this setlist on that¬†night,¬†in preparation to the¬†Paris show.¬†The band has not confirmed the information yet, though. So this is, for now, still a rumour.

In 1999, the band also recorded their last DVD (Beneath the Skin) in Paris, at the Bercy amphitheater. Even though it will be filmed in the same city, the upcoming Zénith show should give a completely different, cosy atmosphere as this venue capacity is 7 000 persons, compare to 17 000 with the Bercy amphitheater. The Paris choice could have been made for practical reasons, as the people at the venue might have some expertise in filming concerts (many concerts were filmed there in the past).

Cranberries World: a FAN website

Some people expressed their deception over the fact that we were getting people their hopes high and then disappointing them if the news turn out not to be true. Remember that we are only a group of fans from around the world making this website happend on our own free time. We do not have any direct, privileged¬†contact with the band, nor represent them in any way. Our news sources consiste of what is available on the Web, what is said or did at concerts and some occasional e-mails to informations sources. So please, take it for what it is, nothing more! ūüėČ

We also would like to thank every person who are emailing us with some pieces of information to include on the site. We will include it over the next months, as the website is still under construction. These information are greatly appreciated!

Antwerpen show

Yesterday’s Antwerpen show went on in a chaotic atmosphere, according to fans attending the several shows on this tour. The venue’s sound quality was not up to standards. Due this poor sound quality, it seemed like some front-row fans were shouting more loudly than the band was playing.¬†The band seemed to have completely lost concentration — Dolores smiling at the situation during the sad-theme “Put Me Down” and “21”–, and the surrounding crowd, annoyed and a bit sour.

Cranberries World to film key moments of upcoming shows

November 3, 2012  |  10 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Though time for the Cranberries World French team members, guys. It’s getting harder to get you updated with all the information about the numerous shows while we’re following the band on the road.

Also, we decided we would try to film a key moment of the shows we will be attending over the next weeks to share these times with you.

While we’re updating the Milano and Roma concerts pages, here is thus the video of The Cranberries amazing performance of Astral Projections last night in Luxembourg – Rockhal, for you to enjoy.

Feel free to request some videos from us in the near future: we should try to attend all the French venues and those at the French border.

‘Astral Projections’ and ‘Roses’ back on the setlist!! [Nov. 3 update]

November 2, 2012  |  14 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries included back, Astral Projections and Roses, two tracks from their lastest album on the Luxembourg show!

That information was confirmed by one of the Cranberries World team member who attended the show.

This is such great news as the Caen show recording is coming up in a few days. Let’s hope that the band will perform them on that night.

Nov 3 update:

Even though there is a mysterious “DVD SET LIST” inscription at the top right of the setlist sheet, Camille ‚Äď who attended the Luxembourg show ‚Äď confirmed us that there was no cameras at the venue. So no DVD release plan for the moment…

To put an end to the Boobs controversy

November 2, 2012  |  5 Comments  |  by Luc  |  Other News
Two days ago, Cranberries World reported about some gossiping on differents forums and between fans attending the current tour, whether Dolores had breasts enlargement or not.
We would like to remind you that we did/do not pass any judgement on Dolores appearance, nor condemn the use of plastic surgery. Every person should be free to use such methods if they want to with no fear of being judge by others. Remember though that no one confirmed that Dolores actually had this kind of surgery.
The Cranberries World Team felt that this was important to briefly address this topic, almost as a footnote our last article, since it was widely discuss between fans.
Now back to celebrate The Cranberries’ music and performances! ūüėČ
