According to Fanberries on Facebook who was following “The Bachelorette” TV show live, The Cranberries minus Mike and Fergal played “Linger” with a string quartet at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin while 2 candidates were dancing together.
It was an acoustic performance.
The TV show didn’t play the whole song (only 2 minutes) and there were dialogues on it at times. Anyway, still according to Fanberries, it is worthwhile.

This post will be updated as soon as appear links to watch a replay.
For now you can watch a 2 min video captured by David Elieser Alvarez and shared on Fanberries Facebook. It looks like David filmed his TV screen with a cell phone. Thanks to him.

UPDATE – JUNE 23 – 3:00 PM (UTC)

Chris Harrison, abc TV Show host, published a 15 sec video on Instagram. Obviously he was one of the few people allowed inside the cathedral during the recording.

Just a stunning experience to be allowed in Christ Church Cathedral and listen to The Cranberries.

His short video is very interesting because it is an audience recording and direct sound inside the cathedral can be heard and it sounds… beautiful… with all the depth and space of such a place.

    They sounded great. Weird that mike and ferg werent there though. Also weird to see dolores and noel together after hearing she was sueing him. Maybe they have already settled out of court?

    The audience recording is brilliant. To me the sound is way more interesting than the official video. I love it. Magic indeed. And Without dialogues.

  3. Jose

    So great to see Dolores and Noel together again.
