Curtain Call made good profits in 2010-2011

A year before the release of their first album in 10 years, The Cranberries made good profits through their own company, Curtain Call Ltd.
According to the Irish Times, the band’s company recorded well-deserved profits of €71,973 in 2011 and €248,183 a year before, mainly with their Reunion Tour, while music sales continues to decline in the entertainment industry for a decade or so.

Each of the band’s four members has a 25 per cent stake in Curtain Call.

With the release of Roses in 2012, followed by short tours in Asia and North America and an extended one in Europe, 2012 must have been a good year for the band, financial-wise.
