The Cranberries fans are still waiting for news from the official Cranberries website still displaying “News coming soon”.  Well, the band might be waiting for Dolores’ judgement (handed down on February 24) before making any announcement.

So much better quality photo from the very first singer of The Cranberries, sorry, The Cranberry Saw Us  Niall Quinn on December 23, 1992 (when he was not in the band anymore):

And last but not least Sara from CranberriesItalia found an instagram video (15sec only!) of Dolores singing Linger in an Irish pub in Killarney, May 2015. It is a 1-acoustic-guitar version. The guy playing with her is unknown for now. Possibly just someone who knew the song and was hanging in the pub at this time.
And as Sara says : “Maybe the only case in which Linger sung in a pub can’t be defined as cover”
