The Cranberries debut album “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” turns 25 today! The band first album was released on March 1, 1993. This could have been such a great anniversary…
We’re sending love, at this very difficult time, to the lads: Fergal, Noel and Mike as well as to you, Dolores, wherever you are… 25 years ago you guys released an absolute masterpiece!
I don’t want to leave you
Even though I have to
The Cranberries just posted on Facebook these photos with the following comments, “Thanks to Niall Quinn for sending these photos. Taken in Limerick sometime in the early 90’s.”

and the other on YouTube (thanks to Eva Garrett):
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.

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”
