After more than 3 months the wait is finally over.
The boxsets have been shipped last week as promised by Concert Live and some have been received.
This is a large box (29 x 23 x 12cm) with magnet closure.
The color is a clear allusion to The Cranberries and is a great choice. Don’t pay attention to photos below, they don’t do justice to the exact color.
