The Battles of “The Voice of Ireland” in a nutshell

December 22, 2013  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Voice of Ireland

Better late than never, a few words on what happened last Sunday and Monday at “The Voice of Ireland”.

The coaches: Dolores, Kian, Bressie, Jamelia

According to fans who attended the shooting, it seems Dolores is still having fun taking part to this show. Although she’s the one giving candidates the most professional advices, she’s also doing many jokes which the audience seems to appreciate a lot.

Kathryn Thomas, the host of the show, told The Independent in an article entitled “Kathryn Thomas planning a family Christmas… but without her new squeeze, Padraig” that “[Dolores] loves the audience. She has had to be reminded of the rules of the show which is pretty funny“.

In another article entitled  “I’ve lost touch with The Voice winner Keith Hanley admits Jamelia“, another coach, Jamelia (who won competition last year), explained that Dolores was a great addition: “[she] is wicked. She is as mad as a box of frogs“.

As usual during the Battle phase, each team is mentored and developed by their coach plus an adviser. Dolores’ advisor is Fiachna Ó Braonáin from the band “Hothouse Flowers, a quite famous Irish band for whom The Cranberries opened shows in 1993.

Last but not least, from what fans reported, Dolores said that hopefully a third album would be released, though she stated she wouldn’t tour before 2015.

We strongly advice to watch the show which will air starting from January 6th on RTÉ One, every sunday 6:30 PM. Dolores really is as Rock n’ Roll at “The Voice of Ireland” as she can be on stage.
For those who can’t access to Irish TV’s, some videos will be available on the official website of the show: http://www.rte.ie/blogs/thevoice/videos/

A GLOBAL FAN CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT DOLORES

November 25, 2013  |  Comments Off on A GLOBAL FAN CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT DOLORES  |  by Camille  |  Other News

Dear Cranberries fans,

As a community, we are bound by the same passion towards Dolores O’ Riordan because her songs are our inspiration. They have provided the soundtrack to our lives. Through good times and bad they have given us something to hold on to and helped make us stronger people.

Today is the day we have to tell Dolores how much we value this and how important she is to us!

Indeed, many of us were moved by Dolores recent expose in the major Irish newspaper “Sunday Independent” where she gave a very intimate interview with the journalist Barry Egan of that paper’s “LIFE” magazine, revealing she was sexually abused as a child.
Following this publication, numerous fans expressed a desire to show their solidarity, especially as Dolores stated « if I tell my fans that this happened to me and they still love me, that’s going to make me feel good about myself ».
Our idol is reaching out for help. This is therefore the time to tell her that our love is unconditional and will never fade.

To make this happen the Cranberries World team has decided to launch a global support project:

In partnership with the Sunday Independent’s LIFE, we’re going to publish the following half page advert in the magazine on December 15th so as to answer Dolores via the same means she herself used to confess her most intimate secrets. We believe that by acting this way, we will be demonstrating to Dolores how much we love and respect her no matter what has happened in her past.
Please note that we can guarantee Dolores will be provided with a copy of the magazine.

How can you contribute to this project?

First, you can encourage Dolores and express your love by sending your support messages together with your name/username and your country to supportdolores [at] cranberriesworld.com. Collective messages are also welcome. Please don’t be shy, show her that her revelation will in no way affect our respect or feelings towards her.
We will then publish all of your messages on http://cranberriesworld.com/supportdolores in order to show Dolores that fans from all over the world are supporting her.

Secondly, we’re asking help from all of you to finance that advert as we need to raise €2,500 for a half page in “LIFE” magazine (27x14cm). We believe this opportunity is unique, and we can only make it happen if we all contribute. Let’s tell the Irish people and the entire world that The Cranberries fans are passionate and devoted. Let’s show them how strong we are when it comes to supporting the woman who gives us so much. You can donate via the donations platform FundRazr which accepts secure payments with PayPal, MasterCard, Visa and other cards.

 

We’ve got less than 3 weeks to act, deadline for messages and fundraising is December 13th!

Thank you to all those who have supported us thus far and those who plan to support us in the near future. We know your support will be of great encouragement to Dolores and help her move forward with her life.
Thank you as well to photographer Mattia Sarzi Madidini who allowed us to use his wonderful picture of Dolores for the ad.

We’d also like to give a big shout out to Barry Egan and Eoin Healy of The Independent for the confidence and trust they have placed in us so that our ambitious project may see the light of day.

Last but not least, spread the word! Tell your Cranberries mates about our campaign.
Let’s make it huge and important, for us the fans and for Dolores.
Let’s keep the love alive.
Thank you.

The Burtons to return to Canada

November 16, 2013  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan

In an online article entitled “Cranberries star Dolores to linger in Canada”, the “Irish Daily Star” revealed that Dolores O’ Riordan and husband Don Burton were to come back to Canada.

As you might remember, the singer and her family had decided to move back to Ireland this summer and rented a house near Dublin for a trial period but it seems her children are homesick and want to go back to Toronto.

We can thus imagine that Dolores will probably not take part in the fourth series of The Voice of Ireland next year (2014-2015).

(The “Irish Daily Star” article is no longer available)


UPDATE – NOVEMBER 18

According to the Independent.ie article published today, the journalist Barry Egan confirms the Burton family has already left to Canada explaining that Dolores & Don, their children, as well as their two dogs took a plane last Tuesday. Dolores has already planned to be back in Dublin mid-December for The Voice Battles.

It was too built up for us. Too many people and cars and it felt like being in a box
[…]
We missed the wilderness. You get used to the great outdoors.
[…]
From my window at home in Canada with the heavy snow on the trees, I can see people fishing through the ice. Doesn’t that sound enticing?
[…]
I’m looking forward to peaceful silence at last!

BREAKING NEWS: Dolores sexually abused as a child

November 10, 2013  |  7 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan

As we all noticed recently, since Dolores O’ Riordan has been taking part to the reality television singing competition “The Voice of Ireland”, Irish medias keep on digging information about her.

After revealing that she was about to launch court action against Noel Hogan about two weeks ago, the Independent.ie (as well as Irish Mirror) shed a light today on her childhood in a most unexpected interview in which she confesses that she was sexually abused as a child.

The full interview will be available in a few hours this Sunday (it’s almost 3:00 AM Irish Time right now) in the Sunday Independent’s Life Magazine. The ePaper version can already be downloaded for €2.80


Dolores on the front cover of “LIFE”

This is obviously the first time Dolores explicitly mentions such a fact:
Even though she had already spoken about the trauma she suffered from during her relationship with Mike Mahoney, the abuse she recently spoke of “started when she was 8 and continued until she was 12“, which shows this has nothing to do with the physical violence her domineering boyfriend used to impose on her.

Regarding from what we understand of the song “In The Garden off the album “Are You Listening?” released in 2007, it seems that Dolores had tried to speak indirectly about what she calls her “little dirty secret” before. Indeed, back in 2007, some of us, fans, analysed the lyrics and suggested the following lines could refer to some of her childhood memories which pointed to such a possibility:

I see her playing in the garden
I was once like her, you did this to me
I don’t remember, when this offence begun
I don’t remember, I can’t undo what’s done

The theory could never be confirmed, even though the song “Skeleton” off the album “No Baggage” released in 2009 provided more clues with lines such as:

I tried to face it
I can’t erase it
So I must face it
I must embrace it
[…]
I have wasted my time
Dwelling in the shadows from the past
[…]
In the corner of the room
I tried to face it

It seems that Dolores has been pondering over what she considers as a “skeleton” a lot recently, hence the revelation that came today. Indeed, she explains she hadn’t seen her abuser for years until she saw him at the funeral of her father two years ago, which brought back the demons of the past as she was about to start a new tour. Dolores then emphasizes the depression she went through on the 2012 world tour, saying “I worried that I might not make it through it“, some facts that created a special atmosphere at these gigs that some of us, fans, could unfortunately feel.

By opening up to her fans via this interview, Dolores hopes that she’ll be released from this trauma, hence the necessity to speak about it and justify some of the songs she wrote in order to heal and move forward.

Dolores O’ Riordan to launch court action against Noel Hogan

October 25, 2013  |  8 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

A weird piece of news to wake up with this morning as we find out in the Irish Press (Irish Independent & Limerick Leader) that Dolores O’ Riordan is about to launch court action against Noel Hogan.

According to these articles, the “cause of action in the filing is listed as a declaration” but no other details have been given as the singer, her spokesperson and Noel remain quiet about the matter.

This, of course, is quite unexpected as The Cranberries have been stating since their reunion tour in 2009 that they’ve always been in good terms and that both Dolores and Noel had even kept writing for each other during the band’s hiatus.

Let’s hope for more news to understand what’s happening exactly and see if that can affect the future of the band as this is quite worrying and shocking for us, fans.
Let’s also note that both articles seem to be repeating the content of a press release without clearly understanding what’s at stake as they’re using the same exact terms.

The Voice of Ireland’s Blind Auditions

October 20, 2013  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Voice of Ireland

As promised, here’s some news from the Blind Auditions of “The Voice of Ireland” TV show where Dolores just appeared as a coach for the first time this year.

Dolores’ seat

Some members of our team were on site and were quite surprised to see how easily Dolores plays the game, almost stealing the show from Kian Egan, one of the 4 original coaches and superstar of the show. She seems to be taking her role very seriously and is probably the most professional coach on the set, giving candidates technical advices, as well as entertaining everyone with numerous jokes. Looks like people in the audience have been enjoying her speeches as much as they often ended up encouraging candidates to choose her as their choach.

A candidate is singing

Dolores revealed during the show that she will sing at Concerto di Natale this winter in Italy.
More to come tomorrow…

Dolores in the press, first articles…

October 13, 2013  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Voice of Ireland

As we get closer to the first shootings of “The Voice of Ireland” which will take place on October 18th, 19th and 20th, numerous articles related to Dolores appear on the Irish Press. Her participation to the TV show will expose her to a new audience of young people who do not necessarily now much of The Cranberries career.

As a consequence, in the article entitled “Dolores is back in the limelight and bidding to find a new voice“, the Irish Independent decided to introduce the singer in a pretty harsh article which tends to emphasize the fact that The Cranberries’ worldwide success has a bitter-sweet taste for Irish people. Let us recall that the band didn’t play a single concert in their home country on their 32 dates European Roses Tour in 2012.

Let’s get prepared to read lots of similar articles in the following months.

Dolores to perform at “Concerto di Natale 2013” (2 UPDATES)

October 12, 2013  |  2 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Dolores O'Riordan

As you might remember, Dolores was due to perform at “Concerto di Natale” in Italy last year but her name was taken off the official website (concertodinatale.it) at the last minute.

According to the RomaToday (romatoday.it), Dolores should be part of this year’s edition which will take place at the Auditorium Conciliazione in Roma.

romatoday.it – screen capture

As for the official website of Concerto di Natale nothing has changed yet and their homepage’s banner still does not include the name of Dolores.
Hopefully soon…

Homepage banner – Concerto di Natale’s website

Thanks to Irishsoul for the info.


UPDATE – OCTOBER 23

CONFIRMED. As reported 3 days ago (October 20th) in our news about The Voice, Dolores will sing at “Concerto di Natale”. It is now officially confirmed on the Facebook page of the event but not yet on their website! Probably just a question of time as nowadays only Facebook seems to count!

As usual the show will be pre-recorded (Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 7:00pm-10:30pm) for a later TV and Radio broadcast in Italy. All those who’d like to go can get tickets on the official website.


UPDATE – OCTOBER 31

Finally Dolores O’ Riordan appeared today on the official website… and it was worth the wait!
The homepage slides 2 brand new banners: one with all the artists’ names including Dolores’ and another one entirely dedicated to her. Have a look:

Dolores to take part in “The Voice of Ireland” as judge

October 4, 2013  |  6 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Voice of Ireland

Dolores appeared tonight on the TV show ‘The Late Late Show” broadcast on Irish TV RTÉ One. She revealed that she is now the new judge/coach of the famous TV show “The Voice of Ireland” replacing Sharon Corr who decided not to take part in the singing competition this year.

It’s great to be back in Ireland and to be taking part in one of Ireland’s most popular TV shows at same time. I know a good voice when I hear one and I am out to find the best star in the country.

She is now back in her home country to record the third series of blind auditions and the shooting should start on October 18th, 19th & 20th. Dolores will have to choose ten contestants to work with and lead the best of them to the final.

Watch “The Late Late Show” interview on this page (Dolores starting at 1:39:30)
The news was also published on independent.ie

One-year anniversary contest (update #2)

January 28, 2013  |  Comments Off on One-year anniversary contest (update #2)  |  by Camille  |  Other News

Last update about our one-year anniversary contest:
First, we’d like to thank all those who participated, you were more than expected!!

The answer to the question was of course “Ode To My Family”, which most of you got right, although many got confused with “Roses”, a song Dolores dedicated to her father. One of you also answered “No Need To Argue”, a 1994 song which is very likely to be written about Dolores’ relationship with first boyfriend Mike Mahoney (although it has never been confirmed by any of the band members).

Click here to read the interview excerpt we posted in November in which Dolores explains she can’t sing “Ode To My Family” anymore because the song reminds her too much of her father.


Brest poster – Winners will receive it shortly

Anyway, congratulations to our 10 winners. Note that one of them decided to let someone else have his poster which had us drawing an 11th name by lot.
Beauvais & Brest posters are now all ready for shipping. Feel free to take pictures of them hanging on your walls once they reach you, and send those to us 😉

Here is the final list of our winners:

Cranberries World’s one-year anniversary!

January 14, 2013  |  2 Comments  |  by Camille  |  Other News

Dear ‘Berries fans,
Cranberries World is one year old!
We’re quite happy on how things have been going so far and are determined to go on like this.

To celebrate, we thought we could launch a small contest to give away a couple of unused posters we managed to get on the last Cranberries tour (Thanks to Anne).

So if you’re interested in winning a large 120×80 centimeters (about 47×32 inches) poster of the concert in Beauvais, just email us the answer to the following question to contest[at]cranberriesworld[dot]com before January 20th:

Which song Dolores did not feel like singing on the European leg of the Roses tour due to the recent death of her father?

We’ll then draw lots to determine the winners who we’ll contact by email.

Beauvais 2012 – Poster to win (sorry for the bad quality pic!)

Now to leave you with a funny news on this special day, we recently discovered on YouTube an unusual video of The Cranberries gig in Caen (France) which was filmed in 3D by a member of the audience. One song only. Some of us tried to watch it with “anaglyph” glasses (simple red and cyan ones), and it worked!
We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did.

Thank you for your support during this first year, we are truly grateful.
Cranberriesly Yours,
CW Team

Last show of the European Roses Tour: Montbéliard

December 10, 2012  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

What a show, dear ‘Berries friends, what a show!
For their last concert of the European Roses Tour, The Cranberries surprised their fans playing “Ode To My Family” for the one and sole time on the whole tour, whereas Dolores seemed not too keen on playing it because of the recent death of her father a year ago. An intense and very emotional moment which we tried to capture in video and should post as soon as possible (just like the band, we need a little break 😉 ).

Although Dolores spat several times on stage, explaining she was very sick, the band did and amazing and beautiful performance. Dolores didn’t miss the opportunity to thank everyone who made this tour true such as the fans who she said they’ll miss, while telling the audience that this was their last show after a 32-date tour. She also gave away a couple of gifts to thank some fans who followed the band around.

Cranberries World video: “Put Me Down” in Nantes

December 1, 2012  |  1 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

As requested, and a little late, here is our video recorded in Nantes.
We thought this version of “Put Me Down” was quite interesting as Dolores plays with harmonics, lowering her voice tone so that it fits Johanna’s voice.

“Put Me Down” – Nantes – November 24, 2012

Cranberries World videos: “Roses” + “You And Me” in Paris

November 26, 2012  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

There you go! 2 songs in 1 recorded at Le Zénith in Paris yesterday. As you now know The Cranberries made a rather special and unusual encore for the first death anniversary of Dolores’ father.
My fellow fans on French forum “Pretty Dolores” also contributed in making this encore special by giving people in the front rows 200 roses to hold in the air.

Here is the video for you to enjoy. Our apologies if this video was not shot from the front row this time, we wanted a more global view to make sure we’d see the roses. No close ups then, plus it’s a bit dark as the lights were turned down on these two songs. Let’s hope we’ll find other videos shot by people closer to the stage soon so to see the whole scene better.

“Roses” & “You And Me” – Paris 2012 – 1st death anniversary of Dolores’ father

In the meantime, let me thank all of you, especially those who came up with this idea and planned everything with me, those who helped me financially, those who spent such a long time taking every single thorn out with me while queuing, those who gave the roses away to people surrounding them, the roadie who helped us in terms of organization (you rock, man!), and all those who participated, holding roses in the air.

Thank you ALL 🙂

Paris 2012 DVD (?) uncertain for sure!

November 19, 2012  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Surprising news but nonetheless true.
From what we understood after talking to different members of The Cranberries road crew during the last couple of gigs, things have become quite complicated in the last days. It seems that the Zénith in Paris is now putting a spoke in the band’s wheel, so much that there might not be any DVD at all…

Apparently the amount of money required by the Parisian Zénith to film a concert in their venue is way above what’s reasonable.
Let’s just hope that the problem can be solved after negotiations.
We imagine you’re all as excited as us to know a new DVD could possibly be released, so let’s cross fingers and we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more about this matter.

Cranberries World video: “Conduct” in Grenoble

November 18, 2012  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Back from Grenoble where we enjoyed a really good show with a very dynamic crowd. We didn’t film what we thought was the key moment of the show but “Conduct” as some of you had requested this song, we would otherwise have picked “Put Me Down” during which Dolores added some interesting vocals at the end.

“Conduct” – Grenoble 2012

Also, we’ll try to capture “Not Sorry…” on the following shows (a request again), and “Show Me” which is turning more and more captivating in time, especially as Dolores now encourages the audience to clap their hands during the verses of the song. To be continued…

Cranberries World video: “I Can’t Be With You” in Strasbourg

November 15, 2012  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday The Cranberries were in Strasbourg in France.
Unfortunately the show was far from being sold out with only one third of the venue (about 2,000 people). Some security team members even told us that the show might have been cancelled in the afternoon. We don’t know whether this was the band or the tour producer’s decision.Anyway, as the show eventually took place, here is the video we filmed in the front row:

“I Can’t Be With You” – Strasbourg 2012

At the end of the show Dolores wished us all “A Merry Christmas” and added “See you next year”.
Is a new European leg planned for next year or was it just a way to say goodbye? Future will tell…

Cranberries World to film key moments of upcoming shows

November 3, 2012  |  10 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Though time for the CW French team members! It’s getting harder to get you updated with all the information about the numerous shows while we’re following the band on the road.

Also, we decided we would try to film a key moment of the shows we will be attending over the next weeks to share these times with you.

While we’re updating the Milano and Roma concerts pages, here is thus the video of The Cranberries amazing performance of “Astral Projections” last night at Rockhal in Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg.

“Astral Projections” – Esch-sur-Alzette 2012

Feel free to request some videos from us in the near future: our french team members should try to attend all the French venues and those at the French border.

Refund requests via Ticketmaster for European shows

June 15, 2012  |  3 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

It seems numerous fans who bought tickets for the London show and Spanish shows on Ticketmaster (.co.uk /.es) are struggling to receive a refund as they live abroad. Some reported they emailed and called Ticketmaster but never got any answer!

Please, do feel free to let us a comment if you know anything about Ticketmaster’s refunds so we can know how many people are concerned and how to help them.
If you’re English, Spanish or from anywhere else but you do know how to obtain an answer from Ticketmaster or how to get a refund, we’d be grateful if you could share your experience to help those who are meeting difficulties.

Thanks
