It all started last February 9th when Facebook user Cesar Enrique Vera (Quíque Vera now!) posted a behind-the-scenes photo of what seemed to be a photo shoot in Puerto Morelos, Mexico:
(Curiously this exact scene below still havent been published anywhere yet!)
The photo shoot was officially confirmed by Dolores on stage in Cancún.
After that, we learned the photographer was none other than ANDY EARL. As you may know, he already worked with The Crans in their glorious past. His name appears on almost all The Cranberries albums and he is responsible for some of their (very famous) promo pics over these last 25 years.
During their time in Cancún, it seems The Cranberries did a lot of different photo shoots possibly during 3 days. With the help of another Facebook user Victor M Gonzalez Becerra, who published another behind-the-scenes photo, we can date these shootings.
So here’s a recap of all the promo pics so far and some of them in HQ!!
All credits go to Andy Earl/BMG/The Cranberries.
DAY 1 (February 9, 2017)
DAY 2 (February 10, 2017)
No pics from this day surfaced yet!
DAY 3 (February 11, 2017)
Another promo pic appeared on the internet today to promote the show in Monaco on August 13th. This one is probably from DAY 3 as all 4 band members are wearing the exact same clothes as the sofa pics that day, just a different place.
Just like the cover of Something Else which is the same as NNTA more than 20 years after, let’s note the resemblance between this new promo pic and AYL some 10 years after!
Nice photo montage made by DO’RSpain
Another promo pic from DAY 1 appeared today on the Billboard website/Soul Sisters Podcast:
