Recap on The Cranberries Paris shows – May 4th & 5th

May 6, 2017  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

No live review on our website on May 4th and May 5th for The Cranberries shows in Paris as most of our team members were attending the shows, so here we are now!

If the first night wasn’t too surprising as the band played the same setlist as in Berlin, the second night was much more special as we were lucky enough to enjoy the world premiere of Rupture.
Here’s the video below:

Let’s note that the band gave a live interview on FB from the Olympia on May 4th in which they confirmed what Dolores had previously mentioned in some recent interviews: the shows won’t actually be fully acoustic but a blend between acoustic and electric versions.
Also Dolores explained on stage on May 4th that they had decided to add some more electric parts to the show not to turn it into a “too boring” performance. This decision to make the set “more dynamic” was probably taken during the rehearsals for the European acoustic tour with String Quarters.

As a consequence, only the new songs from the album are fully performed acoustically on live. This might explain why the North American tour is not promoted as “acoustic”, as opposed to the headline shows in Europe starting from May to mid June.

The Olympia happened to be the first all seated venue on this tour, one may note that Dolores entered the stage on both night asking the crowd to stand up so as to rock the place, which everyone did.

Let’s also emphasise that on the first night, the quartet left the show before Dreams, whereas the song was played with the quartet on the second night!

If it seems that the setlist was “shortened” on the first evening, second evening left more space for the band to play longer outros on their songs, which was very appreciable.

Last, we should note that Dolores sang some alternative lyrics on “Why?” on both night (which did not happen in Berlin) with the lines below :

Somewhere at the crossroads of life
Somewhere in another dimension
Life it really hurts like a knife

In the meantime, here are the first pro pics that can be found on the Internet as well as some cool fans pics, we’ll update this post with some more in the upcoming days.

U.S. and Canadian dates presales: where and when (UPDATED)

April 30, 2017  |  8 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Some of our readers are asking if there are presales for the upcoming North American Cranberries shows. The answer is yes and it seems there are lots of them! To be honest, this looks like a real mess as some shows feature 10 different presales between May 2nd and May 5th (like VIP packages, Spotify presales, cardmember preferred tickets, The Cranberries fan presale, mobile app presale and more…)

Also, one may note that in their recent interviews, Dolores and Noel have always spoken about 18 dates, which means that 4 more shows might remain to be announced. We may imagine that they’re planning to double some shows (such as NYC as Dolores mentioned several times they would be giving 2 shows there) when the 1st one will be sold out.

Here’s our attempt at listing the presales below:

11-Sep – Nashville, TN – Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Ticketmaster / First presale on May 3rd, general onsale on May 5th

13-Sep – Atlanta, GA – The Tabernacle
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th / Floor: standing GA, balcony: reserved seating

16-Sep – New York, NY – Terminal 5
Axs / General onsale on May 5th

18-Sep – Washington, DC – The 9:30 Club
Ticketfly / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on June 22nd

20-Sep – Philadelphia, PA – The Fillmore
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th / General admission only

21-Sep – Boston, MA – House of Blues
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

23-Sep – Montreal, QC – Place des Arts
Place des Arts (English version) / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

24-Sep – Toronto, ON – Rebel
Ticketmaster / First presale on May 4th, general onsale on May 6th

26-Sep – Detroit, MI – The Fillmore Detroit
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

28-Sep – Chicago, IL – Riviera Theater
Ticketfly / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

29-Sep – Council Bluffs, IA – Stir Cove at Harrah’s Casino
Ticketmaster / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

1-Oct – Denver, CO – Paramount Theatre
Altitude Tickets / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

4-Oct – San Francisco, CA – Masonic Auditorium
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

6-Oct – Los Angeles, CA – The Wiltern
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th / Standing pit, loung, mezzanine: reserved seating

Most of the venues appear to have an “artist presale” for fans. No clue yet who these presales will be made available to but we can imagine that a link/code will be sent to people who subscribed to the band’s official website newsletter by preordering Something Else? Or maybe the Live Nation subscribers?

Feel free to let us know if you find out more!


UPDATE MAY 1 – 2:20pm (UTC):
The Cranberries just published on their socials about the fan presale.

Bad news from French fans…

March 17, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Taratata just announced The Cranberries would not perform on their show with London Grammar, Camille & Féfé next Tuesday.

Fans who had reveived their confirmation email earlier this day were just sent a new one mentionning that the band’s performance had been cancelled. No reason given! Tickets remain valid to attend tv show recording on that day though.

Let’s hope everyone’s ok and that the upcoming European tour won’t be affected as well.

Some news from D.A.R.K.

February 22, 2017  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

Good news for those of you who, like us, have been really enthusiastic about D.A.R.K. (Dolores’ side project with Andy Rourke & Olé Koretsky):

Musicradar.com just published a fresh new interview of Andy Rourke ahead of his performance at London Bass Guitar Show on March 5th, 2017.

Asked if the D.A.R.K. project would remain a « one-off » or if there would be more coming from the band, Andy answered :

« In terms of the D.A.R.K project, we are in writing mode at the moment although our schedules are all over the place. Dolores is busy with a Cranberries tour and I’m here working in LA [on a project with Kav Blaggers, former guitarist from Happy Mondays and Black Grape]. But we have a few ideas already. Watch this space is all I can say. »

Let’s hope for new tracks, and that we’ll get to see these folks live one day, ‘cause their rehearsal videos were really promising!!!

Another round of Italian dates this summer

February 21, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

There were rumors band would play at Firenze this summer… this is now officially confirmed!
Festival Firenze Rocks just announced on their website that The Cranberries would join Eddie Vedder to headline the festival on June 24th

There’s very little doubt this festival performance will be an electric one, like Trollrock (Norway) and Landerneau (France).


UPDATE#1: the band also confirmed 3 other shows on their socials:

Fri 23rd June – Anfiteatro Camerini, Piazzola sul Brenta

Mon 26th June – Auditorium Cavea, Rome

Tuesday 27th June – Arena della Regina, Cattolica

It is yet unclear whether those will be acoustic or electric. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we get more info.

Tickets will go on general sale this Friday morning at 11:00 am.
Be warned, there will be a pre-sale this Thursday 10:00 am on Livenation.it!!!

Thanks to Massimo on Cranberries Italia for noticing, as well as Dolores from Croatia 😉


UPDATE#2:
These 4 performances will be ELECTRIC. Livenation Italy just confirmed this info to us by email.
Thanks to them for being so fast!

The Cranberries to perform electric shows on European summer festivals (UPDATED)

February 17, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

The suspens is over!!!
Since The Cranberries had announced summer festivals dates, some fans were wondering whether these performances would be acoustic with the string quartet, like the indoor tour announced for May & June 2017, or if they would be regular “electric” shows.

The Cranberries World team contacted festivals Trollrock (July 29th), Marbella (August 5th) and Landerneau (August 11th) to shade light on this, and Trollrock has just answered to confirm the band will be giving an ELECTRIC SHOW in Norway on July 29th.

We’re still awaiting feedbacks from Marbella & Landerneau, though it now makes almost no doubt that these summer festivals won’t be acoustic shows.

Only their performance on May 1st in Wrocław remains a mystery as it’s taking place in an indoor venue and just one day before the beginning of the acoustic tour in Berlin…

We’ll let you know as soon as we hear back from other festivals, Poland included.

Last but not least, thanks to Atle, from Trollrock, for this information.


UPDATE#1 (Feb.21):
LANDERNEAU answered us to confirm the band will be giving an ELECTRIC PERFORMANCE at their festival too on August 11th!
A major THANK YOU to Carol, from Landerneau.


UPDATE#2 (still Feb.21):
Same for the FOUR ITALIAN SHOWS in Piazzola sul Brenta, Firenze, Roma and Cattolica.
Livenation Italia just confirmed these performances will be electric.
A major THANK YOU to Andrea, from Live Nation Italia.

We’re now awaiting feedbacks from Marbella (Spain), Wrocław (Poland), Cantanhede (Portugal).

Some new summer European shows for The Cranberries

February 17, 2017  |  Comments Off on Some new summer European shows for The Cranberries  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Seems like the summer will be very intense for the band as some more dates are being added every week on The Cranberries summer 2017 tour:

Yesterday, the band announced they will be playing Guitar Guinness Record (Thanks Jimi Festival!) in Wrocław, Poland on May 1st, as you can see on this link.

A new date was just confirmed this morning at Expofacic Festival in Cantanhede, Portugal on August 3rd.

Just like Marbella (Spain), Landerneau (France) and Trollrock (Norway), none of these festivals are mentioning a string quartet. It is thus yet unclear whether these performances will be performed acoustically or not, though we can note the concert on May 1st is taking place indoor.
Our team is trying to get in touch with these festivals to shade light on this.

Keep on checking our website for more info!

First Cranberries summer 2017 show announced

February 2, 2017  |  4 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

We all were expecting this, it’s finally confirmed!
The Cranberries will be touring Europe this summer following the release of their “Greatest Hits” album with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, due late April, early May 2017.

Festival Starlite, in Marbella (Spain) indeed confirmed a moment ago that the band will be playing on August 5th. Tickets are already on sale, price range varies from €34.10 to €223.96

Marbella’s venue:

It is unclear, when reading festival statement, whether or not the band will be touring with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, although they’re emphasizing the quality of the sound on festival site, which could mean there might be chords on stage (?)

Chances are quite high we should soon hear from festival Fête du Bruit in Landerneau (France) where The Cranberries canceled their performance last summer. The festival mentioned several times they would be very happy to welcome them for their 2017 edition, and had already started discussing with their agent this autumn.

Last day of recording for The Cranberries new album (UPDATED)

January 3, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Quite a cool news this morning as the band announced on their socials that today is the last day of recording of their new album.

As you may know, the band confirmed in an interview given in Peru that they would release an acoustic “greatest hits” album of their songs re-recorded with the Irish Chamber Orchestra this year. Let’s note this one should include three completely new songs.

Although they also mentioned in this interview that they would then work on a new album, there’s no doubt the one they’re about to finish to record today is the “best of” album.

Indeed, although our team did not mention it earlier as we do not like to share content from the band’s private socials (we apologize in advance for doing so today), Noel Hogan recently posted a picture on his Instagram account with the words “New parts” on which we can see an acoustic guitar and a couple of songs on a sheet of paper: Dreams, Pretty, Fire & Soul, Electric Blue and Shattered.

It’s quite cool to see that Electric Blue should be part of the album as the song is among the 15 tracks fans let us know they’d like to hear with a new Irish Chamber Orchestra arrangement when we asked them in a poll what would be the tracks they’d like the band to re-record on this occasion.
You can see this poll result on this page.

EDIT 1:35 PM (UTC):
2 photos in studio have just been posted on The Cranberries Instagram account:
“Last day of Band recording”


UPDATE JAN.05:

New pic today on The Cranberries Instagram entitled “String session” and located at Cauldron Studios.

And on Twitter Noel Hogan added the following words“After a quiet few weeks on here I am back to work. Strings today for the new Cranberries album. Last day of recording on this album.”

Pledge Music to satisfy signed Science Agrees vinyl orders in the upcoming days

December 22, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O'Riordan

Good news for D.A.R.K. fans who had ordered a signed Science Agrees vinyl and were still waiting for the item to be delivered. After several complaints, Pledge is finally keeping customers updated on their order in the below email:

To all customers still awaiting their orders,

We know some of you have been waiting far longer than you should have for your signed copy of D.A.R.K.’s Science Agrees. This has been due to a number of factors, including the initial shipment of signed stock arriving at our warehouse damaged, and then the time it has taken to get new stock delivered whilst replacement signings happened at the band’s separate locations around the world.

At one point, due to the issues above and other logistical problems, we thought we would never receive more stock and would have to refund you all. However, we are happy tell you we are expecting a limited amount of stock to cover outstanding orders to finally arrive into our warehouse tomorrow (December 23rd) and for shipping to take place as soon as possible. You will receive a notification email once your item ships, but what with the exceptionally busy time of year, we expect this to be in early January.

PledgeMusic and the band apologise profusely for the wait you have endured. We know it has not been good enough, but we hope to get your long awaited signed album to you asap.

Thank you for your continued patience,
PledgeMusic.

This is definitely a HUGE relief as Pledge Music had actually started refunding some of us early December because of stock shortage.

Let’s hope everyone will receive the exclusive items they have ordered more than 8 months ago now.

And thumbs up to the Pledge Music team – once in a while does no harm 😉 – who happened to be very attentive to fans complaints (we can tell for sure as one member of our team was among the disappointed fans who contacted them to express their dissatisfaction).

If some of you are still awaiting for some news from Pledge, drop us (or DoloreO’RiordanSpain Facebook) a word to see if we can help you reaching out to them.

 

Is Olé Koretsky going to perform with The Cranberries tonight?

December 17, 2016  |  Comments Off on Is Olé Koretsky going to perform with The Cranberries tonight?  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

This is the day for Peruvian fans!
The Cranberries are about to take the stage of VIVO X EL ROCK tonight.
The big question is: Could Olé be a new additional guitarist on the show?
Indeed, as you may have noticed on yesterday’s soundcheck pictures, Olé could be seen with Dolores’ Free To Decide guitar (?) behind Noel, next to Johanna.

This wouldn’t be too surprising as the last 4 shows of The Cranberries -Landerneau FR and the three Cancun MX- had to be cancelled due to Dolores’ back problems.
Olé could thus be replacing Dolores on guitar on songs such as Free To Decide, Zombie, I Can’t Be With You, Dreaming My Dreams, Promises…

Tonight’s concert will tell!
Cranberries World team will try to cover the show live with pics and videos found on the internet.
