Limerick will definitely be the place to be in 2014!!
Indeed the city is officially declared National City of Culture for the whole next year.
If you’re following Noel Hogan on Tumblr,  you may have read his recent posts about the “Limerick City of Culture 2014” where you can see his collaborative production projects for the town. The Cranberries being the biggest home-town band, it seems that some band members (all?) have naturally been asked to do something special to mark the event.
And today the Limerick Leader just announced Dolores O’ Riordan will be performing at the first ever New Year’s Eve concert to take place in Limerick city.

Limerick city of culture

Our favorite rock star 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.

If you’d like to go to the show, tickets will go on sale this Friday (tomorrow) 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.

The show will be broadcast on RTE TV.

    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

    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.

  6. Any recordings on that show? Thanx beforehand.
