As announced on May 24th, The Cranberries were forced to cancel 15 dates of their European semi acoustic tour with String Quartet due to take place in May & June as Dolores had “been instructed by her doctors to immediately cease work for the next 4 weeks for medical reasons associated with a back problem.”
The band immediately explained that her health being paramount, they would work hard to try and reschedule these shows and advised fans to “hold on to [their] ticket until [they] can update further“.
While some promoters have already processed to refund the customers with no more delay, hope comes back today as the Spanish promoter – Doctor Music – just announced that the rescheduled dates would be known next week!
Let’s note Doctor Music is refunding everyone at the moment, stating that tickets bought for June 4th and 5th won’t remain valid, which means that fans will be invited to buy some brand new tickets for the rescheduled shows later on.
Here’s their statement below:
Earlier this week, fans who had bought their ticket for the concert in Genève, Switzerland had also received an email from the local ticket retailer to explain the new date would be announced “mid June”.
We’ll keep you updated as soon as we know more.
In the meantime, we wish Dolores a prompt recovery.
