The Cranberries just announced on their socials and website the U.S./Canadian dates.
The tour is called “something else tour”:

We are very pleased to confirm that our ‘Something Else’ tour will be heading to North America and Canada in September & October 2017. These very special shows will feature our Greatest Hits, performed with a String Quartet! Don’t miss it!

 

All dates are on general sale from Friday 5th May!

 

11-Sep – Nashville, TN – Schermerhorn Symphony Center
13-Sep – Atlanta, GA – The Tabernacle
16-Sep – New York, NY – Terminal 5
18-Sep – Washington, DC – The 9:30 Club
20-Sep – Philadelphia, PA – The Fillmore
21-Sep – Boston, MA – House of Blues – Boston

29-Sep – Council Bluffs, IA – Stir Cove at Harrah’s Casino
1-Oct – Denver, CO – Paramount Theatre – Denver
4-Oct – San Francisco, CA – Masonic Auditorium
6-Oct – Los Angeles, CA – The Wiltern

 

A few more dates might be announced soon as the band said in their recent interviews that the U.S./Canadian tour was counting 18 dates including 2 in New York.

Let’s also note that, still according to the recent interviews and to the fact this announcement does not mention any “acoustic” show, it all tends to show that this “something else tour”, unlike the European tour, will be performed with a string quartet, but not acoustically.
Also, Dolores and Noel previously mentioned that in those cities, they should not be touring with ICO members but some local strings musicians.

Last, the band also confirmed earlier today during the “Gerry Kelly” radio show on BBC Radio Ulster that a South American tour will follow in the fall including Brazil, Argentina, Chile etc… They’re also hoping to perform in Australia by the end of the year.
They added that they are planning on working on some new material during this leg of the tour so as to release a new album afterwards.

    Performed with a string quartet doesn’t necessarily mean acoustic shows according to you ?…

      Hello Arnaud,

      No it doesn’t, especially when you read the Artist Direct interview given by Dolores a few days ago:

      “We were looking at coming over to the States in September – but that will be full live electric, because the venues seem to be more catering a full live electronic show…”

      Source – http://www.artistdirectinterviews.com/rock/the-cranberries-something-else-dolores-o-riordan-interview

      There is thus no way we can affirm this leg of the tour will be acoustic.

      Also, artworks for European “acoustic” tour differs from the American artwork that features the pics from SE and the name “Something Else tour” whereas Europe has a violin and is called “The Cranberries perform their Greatest Hits acoustically with a String Quartet”…

      Up to you to draw your own conclusions 😉

      Or they can play both as they did in 1995, they started with the acoustic set and strings and then they started the regular electronic show. crossing fingers for that!

  2. Val

    Does anyone know how to join the fan club?

  3. DJ

    Anyone know how to get a presale code?

  4. Stacey Malhaner

    Perhaps a stop in beautiful San Diego is warranted?!!

      Adding another city is still a possibility even if the 4 dates still to be announced (if there really are) will probably be a second show like in NYC (maybe on September 15) or San Francisco (maybe on October 3).
