The Limerick Lady and Limerick Pride just announced they’re hosting a tribute event on July 5th at Dolans Pub in Limerick:

“I Heart the Cranberries”:
A loving tribute to the music of The Cranberries in Aid of Adapt House and Limerick Mental Health

A very special concert at Dolans Pub on the 5th of July is the latest in the well-known “I Heart” series which usually takes place at Whelan’s in Dublin and has paid homage to Bowie and Elliot Smith. “I Heart the Cranberries” could of course only take place in the home city of Cranberries’ frontwoman, the late Dolores O’Riordan.

On the night over twenty artists from all over the country will gather to pay tribute to Dolores O’Riordan and the music of the Cranberries – audience members can expect unique renditions of some of the world’s favourite Cranberries songs, with the night culminating in an explosive performance of some of the band’s chart topping anthems, brought to you by our brilliant house band fronted by leading female vocalists from Limerick and beyond.

This event will be a celebration of diversity, women, the LGBTQ community and Irish music at its very best.

Tickets for this event are set to cost only €12 with all profits going to ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services and Limerick Mental Health Association
Doors on the night open at 8pm, and capacity is limited, so book your tickets as soon as they’re available, and get in early on the night.

Follow Limerick LGBTQ Pride and The Limerick Lady on Facebook and Twitter for artist announcements and event updates.

Tickets go on sale on March 9th 2018 @ 10am GMT Dolans.ie

“No Need To Argue” purple vinyl reissue, first images

March 2, 2018  |  Comments Off on “No Need To Argue” purple vinyl reissue, first images  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The limited “No Need To Argue” purple vinyl reissue has been released and shipped last week. Some customers just received their copy and first images appeared on the internet, for example on eBay or Instagram. Let’s note that all those colored vinyl reissues are making debat regarding the sound quality. Here is what Instagram user neemus says about this purple LP:

[…] And even though I should’ve known better, even though PLAIN’s reputation is real, I went and ordered it. *Sigh* This thing sounds awful. Terrible. So compressed and lifeless, mp3 sounds better. Zombie has that fantastic bass line and unfortunately you can’t even enjoy it. They went straight from CD without even bothering to tweak the mix, yet again. FAIL

Zucchero’s tribute to Dolores O’ Riordan

February 25, 2018  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Zucchero has started his “Wanted Italian Tour 2018” last Friday in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Italian singer, who as you know was a friend of Dolores and shared the stage with her a couple of times in the past, published a message on 15 January to express how shocked he was over the passing of Dolores.

 

We find out today, through a video of yesterday’s concert, that Zucchero is paying tribute on this new tour by playing a beautiful rendition of the song ‘Puro Amore” featuring some pictures of Dolores on the screen.

“Puro Amore” – Live in Zurich (2nd show) – February 24, 2018

Thanks to Cranberries Italia for the info.

Rare bootleg audio recorded from the audience.
The Cranberries in Austin, TX at Frank Erwin Center on 29 November 1993

Only 2 songs recorded as taper explains, “This is a rough, live audience recording of the last two songs The Cranberries performed as the opener for Duran Duran. The Cranberries performance that night was magical and sweet. I only got the tail end of the performance as they were opening for Duran Duran.”

“Zombie” + “Liar”
