This morning, independent.ie announced that post-mortem results are due for release tomorrow.

Let’s note note however that website Santa Monica Observer announced that a source in the London Police Department said Dolores O’ Riordan died of Fentanyl poisoning:

Lead Singer of the Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan died of Fentanyl poisoning Monday, said a source in the London Police Department. Authorities found counterfeit fentanyl near the 46 years old rocker’s bed. The source added that an official cause of death will probably have to wait for a toxicology report. He added that suicide and a deliberate overdose are suspected.

The Mirror reported that Dolores’ body was discovered in the bathroom of her suite by the cleaners. She was staying at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

WORST DAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry we just can’t find words to comment on that…
Here’s just a link to the article of Independent

Dolores once said in an interview that she couldn’t picture herself live over 50.
Unfortunately she was SO DAMN RIGHT.

Our deepest condolences go to Her Family, first.
Thinking also of the boys, the beautiful Cranberries team, and all our fellow fans.

WE LOVE YOU DOLORES
MAY YOU REST IN PEACE

HO HO HO… it’s “Angela’s Christmas” (UPDATED)

December 24, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan

H-1 before the Irish TV premiere of the animated short film “Angela’s Christmas” featuring a brand new song recorded last month by Dolores O’ Riordan as revealed on The Cranberries Twitter, Facebook and Instagram 2 days ago.

Facebook post

For those outside of Ireland, you can watch RTE One on FirstOneTV by clicking here, the link might work worldwide (no garantee!!). Let’s hope many of you will record and share for all those who can’t access/watch or just in case there’s no replay or OST available afterwards.
See you after the broadcast later today/tonight for a brief recap!


UPDATE – 9:00 PM (UTC)

The film aired 10 minutes earlier than scheduled.

This is the story of a little girl named Angela who, on Xmas Eve 1914, “steals” Baby Jesus from the Nativity Scene in a cold church in Limerick because she thought he was cold and wanted to warm him home… and eventually bring him back.

Baby Jesus being stolen

Back to church

At home Angela sings a few lines of the song simply called “Angela’s Song”. Obviously this is Angela’s voice (Lucy O’Connell) singing these few lines, not Dolores’.
You can hear Dolores singing the (full?) song during the end credits. It’s approximately 1 minute long. It’s interesting to notice that Dolores only performed the song and did not write it as it’s written and produced by Darren Hendley.

irishsoul just shared it on Vimeo, many thanks to her.
Happy Christmas!

“Angela’s Song” performed by Dolores O’ Riordan

Rest with me
We’ll be warm and free to dream
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Lay with me
Let us sing a sweet melody
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me 
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

A message from Dolores

December 20, 2017  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan, The Cranberries

Earlier today or very late at night yesterday in the USA (if she’s still in NYC), Dolores posted a brand new message both on The Cranberries Facebook and Twitter:

Hi All, Dolores here. Feeling good! I did my first bit of gigging in months at the weekend, performed a few songs at the Billboard annual staff holiday party in New York with the house band. Really enjoyed it! Happy Christmas to all our fans!! Xo

“Linger” and “Zombie” performed at Billboard Party yesterday

December 15, 2017  |  Comments Off on “Linger” and “Zombie” performed at Billboard Party yesterday  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan

As revealed earlier today Dolores performed at “Billboard Holiday Party” in New York City yesterday. Singer Emily Afton just shared on Instagram 4 photos and 2 small videos of the evening in one single post (swipe to see all pics and vids). 2 of them concerning Dolores.
“Linger” – a bit out of key as you can see on video below – and “Zombie” were performed for sure as well as a possible 3rd song but we don’t know which one yet.

Brb jumping back in time to tell my 16-year old self what I did last night… We played the @billboard holiday party and I got to sing with Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Chris Baron (the Spin Doctors), Dolores O’Riordan (the f$*%ing CRANBERRIES), Matt Scannell (Vertical Horizon), and Sophie B. Hawkins. IT WAS SO COOL (just realized the sugar ray song is in there twice but I can’t delete it so YOLO)

How great!

Finally a piece of news concerning Dolores O’ Riordan. The CG animated film “Angela’s Christmas” features an original song from the singer. The information was revealed by iftn.ie in the article entitled “Brown Bag Films’ Animated Holiday Special ‘Angela’s Christmas’ to Premiere in Ireland this Christmas on RTÉ One”

“Angela’s Christmas” is a half hour film based on the children’s book by Frank McCourt and already received an exclusive screening on December 2nd at Light House Cinema in Dublin. It will premiere in Ireland on RTÉ One on Christmas Eve at 6:20 pm and will receive a 2nd broadcast on Christmas Day at 1:50 pm.

2 new old photos of Dolores

November 10, 2017  |  Comments Off on 2 new old photos of Dolores  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Two photos appeared these last 24 hours on Instagram. Both posted by Joseph Agrimando who seems to be working as a top colorist hairdresser at Sassoon Salon in New York City.

Sassoon Salon – 32 west 18 street, NYC

The first photo was posted yesterday without explanation but clearly is an old one probably from late 2014 judging by the look of Dolores similar to the one on the photo posted on Dolores’ Facebook on October 17, 2014. Also there’s no “Terry” tattoo on her arm.

Today the guy posted a second photo which is a bit more intriguing and more difficult to comment. And still no explanation/comment with it. Is it just another photo taken the same day or same period or a more recent one, that is the question.


Maybe one can imagine the first photo taken in a club somewhere and the second one in a taxi going to or back from the club that same day/night.

Is it still Doloresday?

BREAKING: “D.A.R.K. Live PA” opening for The Cranberries on their European acoustic tour

April 19, 2017  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O' Riordan, The Cranberries

After “Everybody Else…” reissued on vinyl, another unexpected news today coming this time from D.A.R.K. on their socials.

Olé Koretsky will be joined on stage by DJ Wool performing D.A.R.K. songs and other material, on tour supporting The Cranberries in Europe.

 

DJ Wool

D.A.R.K. will be supporting The Cranberries on live PA on their European acoustic tour from May 2nd in Berlin to June 10th in Milano. Please note that the summer electric shows in July/August are not concerned, nor the show in Wrocław, Poland on May 1st (which comes as a probable confirmation that Wrocław won’t be an acoustic show). Also, the 3rd Paris show added on May 13th is not on the list but will certainly be included. This seems to be a simple “copy and paste” of The Cranberries website which still doesn’t list the third Paris show (!!??).

For those of you wondering what Live PA means, wikipedia provides a pretty accurate answer: “it is the act of performing live electronic music in settings typically associated with DJing”.
So don’t expect lots of backline on stage, mostly backing tapes on keyboards and computers.
Will Olé Koretsky be the only singer or will DJ Wool be singing too?
We can’t help but hope Dolores will join them at some point to perform as a super guest… time will tell!!!

Very exciting piece of news!


EDIT 9:40 PM (UTC):
Glen Brady, also known as DJ Wool, just posted a great photo on his Instagram account. The Cranberries fans will easily recognize the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio located in Limerick where it looks like everyone is rehearsing together these days. Nice to discover the D.A.R.K. Live PA set with SCIENCE AGREES on it. We can’t see the whole room but it does look like there’s only one mic for Olé Koretsky. Can we still expect Dolores to make a surprise featuring nonetheless? Suspens…

Last thing to note, Glen Brady is a sound engineer who mixed D.A.R.K. album and was supposed to be an opening act for D.A.R.K. shows last year.

Thanks to J. for noticing!
