Limerick will definitely be the place to be in 2014!
The Irish city is indeed officially declared “National City of Culture” for the whole next year.
If you read Noel Hogan’s messages on Tumblr, you may have already seen his recent posts about the “Limerick City of Culture 2014” and followed his collaborative production projects for the town.
And here comes the next step today, the Limerick Leader just announced that Dolores O’ Riordan will be performing at the first ever New Year’s Eve concert to take place in Limerick. Something quite obvious when we all know that The Cranberries are still the biggest hometown band to this day!
Immediate notice: why Dolores solo and not The Cranberries?
No answer to that yet, anyways…
If you’d like to go to the show, tickets will go on sale tomorrow (Friday) on Ticketmaster.
A crowd of up to 2,800 people will packed into Merchant’s Quay in front of City Hall for the ticket only gig.
Dolores will be joined by the Irish Chamber Orchestra for an “exclusive worldwide performance” to open Limerick’s stint as National City of Culture. Other artists are planned and names will be revealed in the coming weeks.
The show will be broadcast on Irish TV RTÉ.
Limerick city of culture 2014 rocks but i am a little sad Dolores is performing solo at this concert. it should be The Cranberries. ok Noel is doing some stuffs as well but come on… on stage live… The Cranberries are all from the town. Hope it’s not the court action problems continueing
Yes it’s really unbelievable….They are well known in limerick….
Yep i’m going. Too bad it is not the crans indeed. Imagine the cool show it could be in their home town
I think it’s pretty much clear why Dolores goes solo on New Eve. Beacuse there are no more The Cranberries. It’s obvious the group disbanded. The Cranberries RIP.
Still there will be new Mono Band album as well as Dolores’ third solo.
Dolores is such a nice lady – I was talking with her yesterday afternoon, and as a male about 3 years younger than her, even though I talk to her almost every week, I found myself bumbling when talking to her casually about my baby daughter – she is so much more beautiful in person than from afar/in pictures – one of the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my life – stunning – and a really good person too.
Any recordings on that show? Thanx beforehand.
