The Cranberries European Tour 2017 starts today in Poland

May 1, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries European tour 2017 starts today in Poland. Just like the European Tour last year, the Polish fans have the chance to see the band in concert first.
It’s still unclear whether this show is part of the acoustic tour or not. Probably not… we will know soon.
It’s hard to understand why the band doesn’t communicate more on this point as there clearly are 2 different types of show in Europe this year.

Anyway this is the day and this post will be updated all day and night long on what’s happening now in Poland. The band arrived yesterday in Wrocław and some of the band members posted photos of the city on their Instagram accounts. Here’s one pic by whiteprism/Johanna Wiseley (backing vocals) who, by the way, just announced she was pregnant. The CW team would like to wish her all the best!

Here’s the poster:

and 2 tickets for tonight’s show

The band also played their new acoustic version of Linger live on “The One Show” on BBC One TV which you can watch below (720p):

The One Show posted a picture with the band on their Facebook page

Some lucky fans attended the soundcheck and managed to meet the band.
Thanks to all of them for sharing!
“The Cranberries Newspaper” posted on their Facebook page a few pictures:

Jordan Oliveira also shared on his Instagram a nice picture of the 4 Cranberries as well as a video of the soundcheck.

And a second soundcheck video on YouTube uploaded by MrNoseyman61

As a reminder the band is to give an interview tomorrow morning at 6:00 am on BBC News TV. The show is called “BBC Breakfast”. And Dolores will also appear on BBC Radio 6 Music at 1:00 PM on Liz Kershaw.

The Cranberries U.S. and Canadian tour dates announced

April 28, 2017  |  8 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

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
23-Sep – Montreal, QC – Place des Arts

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.

The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene – RTE 2FM – interview

April 27, 2017  |  Comments Off on The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene – RTE 2FM – interview  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A few hours ago the 4 members of The Cranberries were on Irish Radio RTE 2fm on “The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene” show. The interview was prerecorded yesterday during their press day in Dublin and broadcast around noon today. Just before the broadcast, Nicky Byrne posted a photo with the whole band on his Twitter account.

Still before the broadcast RTE2FM also posted a multiview photo on their Twitter account.

The interview is about 15 minutes long and starts with questions about The Bachelorette, the music industry being different today, the early years when sending demo tapes and receiving record companies letters/answers, the day when and where Zombie was written.

Then one of the hosts asks about Linger.
Dolores: “it’s about first kiss and how the guy broke my heart”
“Does he know the song’s about him?” replies one of the host
Dolores: “I actually got a letter from him about 10 years later, he just said, you know I’m sorry”

About Irish shows coming up soon, are they nervous or is it exciting.
Noel: “A bit of both, you’re far more aware of it, a lot of family out there and at the same time you can’t wait to do it because we do this a lot all over the world and a lot of people aren’t aware of that so it’s nice to kind of come home, we don’t do it that often so it’s always special when we do it”

About more Irish dates.
Noel: “We never say never”
Dolores: “but after this tour it’s the U.S. in September and then they want us to go in South America

About the I.C.O. and the NYE gig and if they had already worked with an orchestra before.
Dolores: “Actually Linger, the original recording, there was a quartet used on that”

About the upcoming shows and the kind of songs they’re gonna be performing.
Noel: “Mainly the album that’s coming out, they’re kind of a semi acoustic with the quartet, a lot of the songs in this album I guess were singles over the years so we’ll be doing those. There’s some new songs written for this album … it may change a bit as we go along then add in and take out songs as the weeks go by but there’s enough to cover… the set is an hour and a half, an hour and twenty minutes.”

About another studio album.
Dolores: “Noel writes more on the road cos he has more time so he sends me bits and pieces so it’s good going on tour cos we get to write for a bit.”

About D.A.R.K.
Dolores: “…the material is very interesting, kind of electronic and it’s also very ambiant, very different to what i’ve done before. Olé is opening up for us on his own but then probably when we swing over to America Andy will probably come on stage and do a few gigs with him.

Special thanks to the fabulous Jackie Hogan for letting fans know about this broadcast just on time.
You Rock!

EDIT: Podcast now available on this link.

“Something Else” signed by Dolores available from Newbury Comics

April 26, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

For those who missed the band signed copies from The Cranberries official store, you can still preorder Dolores signed copies from Newbury Comics
Price: $14.99

Some of you might remember that in the past Newbury already sold signed CD’s of The Cranberries and Dolores solo (Roses, No Baggage). Customers received a brand new CD still factory sealed and a signed CD booklet apart. Yes it makes 2 booklets. Even if there never is details about that, it might be the very same today.

Please note that CD booklet will be autographed by Dolores only and not the whole band in comparison to the no longer available signed copies from the band’s official store.

Thanks to Cranberryesque for this valuable information!!
