One more date in France on The Cranberries summer tour

February 25, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries have just been announced to play La Foire aux Vins d’Alsace on August 12, 2016.
This festival is located in the East of France in the city of Colmar (very close to Germany).

2016.02.25 TC Colmar 1

The band already played there in August 2010 sharing the bill with a band named Gotan Project. It was the last show in Europe in 2010 and there was a big power failure during The Cranberries set. Fans still remember this particular show as the band had to skip a lot of songs to end the show on time when the power returned. Let’s hope this time fate will be better !

Tickets go on sale on March 4th at 9:00 AM (UTC) on the website of the festival.
Click on the word “Billetterie”

Thanks to Stephan for the tip.

BREAKING: A couple of albums coming out!!! (2 UPDATES)

February 24, 2016  |  10 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

An online article of the Independent.ie reports a few words Dolores said outside court after the sentencing:

 I don’t really have much to say. I’m glad it’s over and I want to thank the doctors who helped me to get back my health mentally.

 

I’m feeling very good today, very positive about this upcoming year. I have a couple of albums coming out and I’m going to go back to work.

Is Dolores talking about The Cranberries + JetlagNYC + the hypothetical collaboration with Eric Alexandrakis? Time will tell but 2016 will be great for sure.

UPDATE 4:50 PM (GMT)

Sara from CranberriesItalia (yes still her, you should work for CW Sara!) is watching the Irish TV RTE1 and reports the following: “They’re after talking about it on rte1. She briefly spoke to the reporter and said she’s about to release 2 records, one with the Chamber Orchestra and another with a project called Dark.”
QUITE UNEXPECTED !!

Rectification: Sara heard it on RTE1 Radio, not TV.

UPDATE 5:10 PM (GMT)

JetlagNYC becomes DARK
The Facebook page of JetlagNYC just changed its name into DARK.
This explains the comment of Sara and it’s now obvious that the 1st of the 2 records Dolores is talking about will be the one with JetlagNYC… I mean DARK. The second will be something unexpected with the Chamber Orchestra. She already played with them on the New Year’s Eve concert in Limerick (2013).
So what about The Cranberries album? Mystery…

Bury The Hatchet double LIVE album at Concert Live??

February 19, 2016  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The website Concert Live just published a new page where you can pre-order “Bury The Hatchet double live album”. Release date is March 18th.

2016.02.19 concertlive BTHLIVE

This probably is a mistake from Concert Live. Those guys often make mistakes, it is not the first time and it probably won’t be the last. For example see this past news where they announced unreleased recordings when it was not!

This 2LP version of Bury The Hatchet must probably be the recent Deluxe Edition 180 grams released last January in USA exclusively which would be now available for the first time in Europe. Otherwise if it really is a LIVE version of BTH this record would be completely unreleased & new.
Probability: 1% (or should I say 0% !!)

UPDATE FEB.20

The word “live” was removed today! No more details if it is the 180 grams edition, but it sure is.

Concert in Lublin, Poland confirmed as first gig of the tour

February 16, 2016  |  10 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

According to a Polish webzine, Rock Magazyn, the band will start the 2016 European tour in Lublin, Poland.

As opposed to the dates that have already been announced yet, this one will not be a festival performance. The band will indeed play in a stadium (Lublin Arena) on June 3rd.

We’ll update this post as soon as we find an official confirmation for this.


UPDATE 2:00 PM (GMT+1)

This piece of news appears to be widely shared by different Polish websites such as RMF.fm and Wyborcza.pl, which tends to confirm that this is definitely official.


UPDATE 2:20 PM (GMT+1)

Polish fan Milosz B. sent us a link towards official Lublin Arena website, that comes as a final confirmation for this performance.

Thanks a lot to all of you, guys, who help us gathering information!


UPDATE FEB.18

Now confirmed by Noel Hogan on his Tumblr account.

New dates on 2016 Summer tour…

February 12, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

For those who follow us on Facebook, we posted a link towards a Polish article yesterday about a possible date in Lublin. A Polish fan, Krzysztof S. informed us that this is only a rumor at this stage.

However, Italian fan Sara L. found out a ticket link this morning showing that the band is to play festival Cognac Blues Passion in France on July 7, 2016.
This is confirmed on the festival website.

New album coming soon… or not !

February 9, 2016  |  8 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday the open-air festival Festi’Neuch in Neuchâtel Switzerland announced their 2016 line up featuring The Cranberries and the page dedicated to the band was mentioning a new album this year:

Ils reviennent au centre de l’actualité avec un nouvel album prévu pour cette année et cela ne peut que réserver de bonnes surprises !

 

Translation: They’re back in the spotlight with a new album to be released this year, good news in store !

Today this text was removed which possibly means it was a mistake… or THE big news revealed too early ! Below the new page in French (as Neuchâtel is located on the French speaking side of Switzerland)

2016.02.09 TC new text

If anyone captured the original text yesterday please send us a copy. Thanks.


UPDATE

Here comes the original text from yesterday. Thanks to Richard & Maïwenn
