May 29, 2016  |  7 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

There a now five days left until the first concert of The Cranberries European Tour 2016 which will take place at the Arena Lublin, in Poland.

Walking through the streets of Lublin, Polish fans will probably notice that the Lublin Arena is doing last minute street marketing to promote the concert these days, as you can see on the below pics:

On the band’s part, Noel posted two new rehearsals pics, mentioning these were the last days of rehearsals, along with a brand new poster of the tour and a pic of crew members’ tour books.

Last, the Limerick Leader posted a cool article about the band’s comeback along with a small interview from Ken Coleman, the Irish digital media artist who took the recent photographs and video of the band posted on The Cranberries official social media accounts.

Ken explained:

They are all in different places at different times, so we had a very small window of opportunity to get it done on a Sunday evening.

We knocked it out in about an hour and a half; green screen, live video, and the stills from that last practice before they packed up.

I got a couple of shots of them and the video and you can see at the very end that they are having a good chat, they were laughing and joking amongst themselves.

What is exciting is the international reaction – the video had 300,000 hits in a day, the Instagram had 48,000 likes.

You guys better be ready for memorable tour!!!

Who’s going to see the band? 😉

May 24, 2016  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K.

Shazam is definitely one of THE new way to preview a new album. 6 songs of D.A.R.K.’s debut album ‘Science Agrees” already appeared on the app these last weeks:
Four samples of 30 seconds of “Gunfight, Steal You Away, High Fashion, The Moon” were made available as well as two full songs officially released “Curvy” and “Loosen The Noose”.

If you wanna listen to the other 4 samples that are not officially online yet, you can force them to appear. Simply change the number of the song in the address bar of your internet browser and let the magic happen, all songs appear!!

These 2 shows sound quite intimate and fancy like the ones in Monaco back in July 2002 but no dresscode seems required. No more shows in Mexico are planned for now so Mexican fans, this might be your only chance to see The Cranberries this summer.

Thanks to CranberriesMexico for all those details!

The Cranberries back in rehearsals, invite fans to join them and shed a light on D.A.R.K.’s tour postponement

May 15, 2016  |  6 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

The band is back to the Limerick Chamber Orchestra studio this week so as to rehearse once more for the summer shows that will take place in Europe and Mexico.

This time, Dolores is rehearsing with the boys, Johanna and Mikey, as seen on the pictures Noel posted on the band’s Instagram account:

Cool pic of Declan, the band’s backline tech!

These rehearsals are taking place as Dolores should have been starting touring Europe with her side project D.A.R.K.
A great opportunity for fans who were to fly to Limerick to attend D.A.R.K.’s first concert ever as a few of them were lucky enough to be invited by Dolores herself to attend The Cranberries rehearsals twice!

Picture of the girls Noel posted on the band’s official Instagram account!

Congrats to Litsa (Greece), Voula (Greece) and Dolores (Croatia) who probably had the time of their life, enjoying a “private” concert, being offered setlists and taking pics with the band!

The girls used the occasion to question Dolores about D.A.R.K.’s tour postponement and learned that it was due to visa issues for their guitarist, which explains why fans got to learn about the rescheduled dates pretty late. The band is grateful, however, that fans are quite tolerant and not blaming them for this postponement.

“God Be With You” on the charity album to fight homelessness

May 11, 2016  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

The tracklisting of the charity album to fight homelessness featuring Dolores O’Riordan among other Irish artists is now known. The website Lovin Dublin just published the full list and it will be the song “God Be With You” concerning Dolores. The album is called “Rising Against Homelessness” and goes on sale this week in Irish record stores, Starbucks outlets and will also be available to download from iTunes.
Price €10.

2016.10.11 rising against homelessness

TRACKLIST:

1. ‘The Patriot Game’ by Munday and friends

2. ‘The Foggy Dew’ by The Chieftains with Sinead O’Connor

3. ‘God Be With You ‘ by Dolores O’Riordan 

4. ‘Wild Mountain Time’ by The Waterboys

5. ‘The Town I Loved So Well’ by Camille O’Sullivan

6. ‘The Auld Triangle’ by HomeTown

7. ‘The Night Visiting Song’ by August Wells

8. ‘Children of ’16’ by Declan O’Rourke

9. ‘Villains Remix’ by The Saw Doctors with Giles Packham

10. ‘Hairy Jaysus’ by Kila with Giles Packham

11. ‘Down By The Sally Gardens’ by Heathers

12. ‘Romantic Ireland Is Dead and Gone’ by The Walls

13. ‘The Galtee Mountain Bay’ by Pauline Scanlon.

14. ‘A Song for Ireland’ by Stephen Robinson

15. ‘Foggy Dew 2016’ by Lethal Dialect

16. ‘AmhrĂĄn na bhFiann’ by Meltybrains?

As you probably all know, “God Be With You” already appears on the remastered version of the album “To The Faithful Departed”. Dolores being credited on this new charity album and not “The Cranberries” it is quite unclear for now whether the song is a new version or the old Cranberries version.

Sources: Lovin Dublin, Irish Mirror


Edit: “God Be With You” was originally recorded and released as a Dolores solo track for “The Devil’s Own” soundtrack, so there’s a good chance that this is still the same old version on this charity CD.
Thanks Richard!!
