We’ve sadly just learned of the passing of Denny DeMarchi, who fans of The Cranberries were very familiar with as he used to perform on stage as additional musician with the band on the 2009-2011 Reunion Tour. He also accompanied Dolores in her solo career, contributing to her two solo albums Are You Listening? and No Baggage, and touring with her in 2007.
According to Wikipedia, Denny was born on 28 November 1962, he was 57.
The CW team would like to express our sorrow and condolences to his family and friends, and in particular his brother, Steve DeMarchi.
Rest In Peace, Denny…

Dolores performed a private show and the lucky newly weds also had a private photo session with her and probably a few autographs as well! There is no information about who they are, where and when this happened (probably late 2007) or the setlist.
UPDATE – MAY 9
