The suspens is over!!!
Since The Cranberries had announced summer festivals dates, some fans were wondering whether these performances would be acoustic with the string quartet, like the indoor tour announced for May & June 2017, or if they would be regular “electric” shows.
The Cranberries World team contacted festivals Trollrock (July 29th), Marbella (August 5th) and Landerneau (August 11th) to shade light on this, and Trollrock has just answered to confirm the band will be giving an ELECTRIC SHOW in Norway on July 29th.
We’re still awaiting feedbacks from Marbella & Landerneau, though it now makes almost no doubt that these summer festivals won’t be acoustic shows.
Only their performance on May 1st in Wrocław remains a mystery as it’s taking place in an indoor venue and just one day before the beginning of the acoustic tour in Berlin…
We’ll let you know as soon as we hear back from other festivals, Poland included.
Last but not least, thanks to Atle, from Trollrock, for this information.
LANDERNEAU answered us to confirm the band will be giving an ELECTRIC PERFORMANCE at their festival too on August 11th!
A major THANK YOU to Carol, from Landerneau.
UPDATE#2 (still Feb.21):
Same for the FOUR ITALIAN SHOWS in Piazzola sul Brenta, Firenze, Roma and Cattolica.
Livenation Italia just confirmed these performances will be electric.
A major THANK YOU to Andrea, from Live Nation Italia.
We’re now awaiting feedbacks from Marbella (Spain), Wrocław (Poland), Cantanhede (Portugal).
That’s a real thing. Why the crans don’t communicate about that. I think it is very important.
Ok I can see the rule: indoors are acoustic and festivals are electric. But is it so simple as that? Shame on the band for not saying a word about that.
We’d say all shows that are not featured on the “acoustic tour” artwork the band posted on their website are electric shows.
Our team is nonetheless checking with all promoters, one by one, in order to make it official, so that fans know what they are buying tickets for 😉
