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 WrocƂaw 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), WrocƂaw (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 WrocƂaw, 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!

BREAKING NEWS: “Why” is the new The Cranberries single! (well, probably)

February 11, 2017  |  Comments Off on BREAKING NEWS: “Why” is the new The Cranberries single! (well, probably)  |  by Jury  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday The Cranberries did a press conference before their first show in CancĂșn, Mexico. During that press conference, Dolores O’Riordan revealed interesting information!

According to Dolores, the first single from the upcoming acoustic album is going to be called “Why“, and The Cranberries are going to film the video for “Why” in Europe!

So… for many years we had “How”… and now we’ll have “Why”! 😉

IMPORTANT NOTE: the sound quality of press conference video is quite poor, so it’s possible that Dolores’ words were misheard.

Dolores also mentioned that the new photoshoot the Cranberries did in Mexico is going to be used for the album’s sleeve (it’s something we’ve already reported before here).

BREAKING NEWS: the cover of the next album almost revealed (UPDATED)

February 10, 2017  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

During the first show in CancĂșn tonight Dolores announced before the last song (Dreams) that the band did a photo shoot yesterday, Thursday February 9th in Puerto Morelos, and the picture will be used for the cover of the next album. It is unclear whether this picture will be used as the cover of the greatest hits album with the Irish Chamber Orchestra or the completely new one that is expected afterwards?

Amazing fact, earlier today, an amateur photo of this photo shoot appeared on the internet. Facebook user Cesar Enrique Vera, the guy who took it randomly, didn’t know what was at stake when he captured this moment, he was just there at the right place, at the right time. Masterpiece!

Listen to Dolores’ speech starting at 07:12 on the video below recorded by Cranberries Mexico

#TheCranberries en CancĂșn (Viernes)

Posted by Cranberries MEXICO on Freitag, 10. Februar 2017


UPDATE Feb.11:
Cranberries Mexico was lucky enough to talk about the photo shoot with Fergal, who mentioned that the picture was taken by none other than Andy Earl (who’s very famous in The Cranberries world in case you don’t know) and that they’re not sure whether the photo will be the cover or not, though it should definitely be part of the artwork.

Around 6:30/ 7:00 PM today (local time) the band did a press conference:

(There is a periscope video on this link)

and before that (or just after? unclear!), there was a Meet and Greet with a few lucky fans who won the official meet and greet contest:

Now time for the show, fans just entered the venue and the first pictures inside are appearing:

Remember it is a dinner-concert around tables and everyone seated! Quite weird!
Our friends at Cranberries Mexico will try to video broadcast live on CranMex YouTube starting hopefully very soon.

Landerneau: another Cranberries show announced in France

February 7, 2017  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Not a surprise for this one, The Cranberries will play festival “FĂȘte du Bruit dans Landerneau” in Landerneau, France on August 11, 2017.
As you may remember, The Cranberries had to cancel their show last year and the promoter wanted to have them back.

This show deserves a separate news mostly because tickets are not sold through the French promoter’s website (yet?) and is not presented as an acoustic performance like the May/June tour. The artwork does not include any violin. Same thing for the very first show that appeared online last week in Marbella, Spain: it is unclear whether or not these shows are part of the acoustic tour, but we have reasons to think they are not.
So… what’s your opinion? Do you believe these 2 shows are gonna be acoustic with the string quartet or electric ones?

Tickets on sale now. €38.30 / €46.30

OFFICIAL TOUR ARTWORK POSTED ON THE CRANBERRIES FACEBOOK:

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 FĂȘte 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.

Flight attendant to proceed against Dolores after 2014 incident

January 8, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Sara  |  Dolores O' Riordan, Other News, The Cranberries

According to an article appeared this morning on The Business Post, Carmel Coyne, the flight attendant whose foot got injured during the Aer Lingus 2014 incident, has started a legal action against Dolores. High Court proceedings were filed last Wednesday and, according to the Business Post, Aer Lingus is listed as defendant as well.

We wait to get more information regarding the matter.

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.”

 

The Cauldron Recording Studios in Dublin (the building with ivy all over):

Happy Birthday to Noel Hogan 45 years old today!

It’s now midnight in Ireland and it’s December 25, 2016.

So Happy Birthday to Noel Hogan, 45 years old today.
Have a good one man.

The show is now over, the band played approximately 1h20.
As announced earlier Olé Koretsky indeed did replace Dolores on guitar. What a great surprise.

THANK YOU… GOODNIGHT!

Is Olé Koretsky going to perform with The Cranberries tonight?

December 17, 2016  |  Comments Off on Is OlĂ© 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, OlĂ© 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.
OlĂ© 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.

The Cranberries Lima’s concert D-1

December 16, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries will play tomorrow in Lima and to say the least, they’ve gotten very busy days. A lot of new things appeared today on the internet. Still a lot of pictures posted by the fans, the band doing soundcheck this afternoon on festival site and a new photoshoot by the official photographer of the festival. Dolores also tweeted a photo taken from her balcony, nice view on fans waiting for her downstairs. 2 new interviews with Noel and Fergal from yesterday have also been published… and the day is not completely over in Lima!

Posted by Conciertos PerĂș on Friday, 16 December 2016

 

In this interview Noel and Fergal are talking about the Vivo El Rock festival -Fergal would like to see Garbage- the setlist being a mix of everything a sort of a best-of, the touring process much more balanced now than in the past, the music industry these days, Brexit and the busy year ahead with new album and new tour starting in Europe for the beginning of the year and after that possibly South America

The second new interview was published on ElComercio.pe but it’s all translated in Spanish and we can’t even hear the voices of Noel and Fergal. No idea what they are talking about!

#ENVIVO con los integrantes de #THECRANBERRIES

Posted by Publimetro on Thursday, 15 December 2016

 

In this interview, the guys talk about how it is to play festival with other bands on the bill, their setlist for Saturday’s show, audiences that don’t speak English: “…audiences that don’t speak English have never been an issue… a good song has its own translation…”.

They also explain the importance of a producer when making a record and… MENTION THE NEW ALBUM-(!!!) : We have almost finished recording a new album, it’s a kind of reworking of some of our older songs with acoustic kind of style, and working with a quartet from the Irish Chamber Orchestra. And there’s 3 new songs, completely new, as well as some other songs like Linger and Dreams. That’s gonna be released next year in May I think”

Fergal then says they’re “gonna be doing some touring with that” and are also “writing for a new album, a completely new album after that one“.

SO EXCITING!

Johanna (back vocals) posted on her Instagram story a very short video (or rather just a photo effect) recorded during this first rehearsal day. The Cranberries Brasil made a screen capture:

December 13, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The first pictures of Dolores and OlĂ© Koretsky arriving in PerĂș today were published on elcomercio.pe

Last Saturday, December 10, Noel Hogan posted on twitter: “Back on the road for one last show this year. Playing Peru this time next week, one quick stop in NYC on the way.”

And 2 days later he posted another short message: “Off I go” with a picture of a flight map London-New York

Thanks to cabezahuecape and DORSpain


UPDATE DEC.14:

Yesterday Noel twitted from JFK international Airport in NYC: “That’s New York done, next stop Lima.”
…and twitted again when arrived: “Hello Lima”

Johanna and Mikey Freedom Hart have also arrived in PerĂș and posted pictures from Lima this Wednesday afternoon:

Still no pics from the boys yet 🙁
Hopefully soon!

“No Need To Argue” colored vinyl reissue: 2 versions (UPDATED)

December 11, 2016  |  Comments Off on “No Need To Argue” colored vinyl reissue: 2 versions (UPDATED)  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

It seems like there is an unexpected new item on sale on Runt.com
As you know they announced they would sell some NNTA “cranberry colored vinyl” limited editon starting from September 2016, though two fans recently noticed that they were actually selling one “cranberry” color and one “plum red” color.

The below pictures show the difference between the two:

Thank you to Andrea and Dominestar for noticing.


UPDATE DEC.23:
Some members of our team received their “Cranberry Red” and “Plum Red” colored LP’s.
How to recognize them? Easy, you can’t make any mistake. First they have a different catalog number: PLA 2021 for Cranberry and PLA 2022 for Plum. Secondly, they have different stickers on their cover and the Cranberry sticker is always located on the top center whereas the Plum one is always on the top left. Here below close-up photos.

(SPOIL) Possible setlist for the next Cranberries show in Lima, Peru

November 29, 2016  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Do not read below if you don’t wanna be spoiled as this is possibly the setlist for the next Cranberries show in Lima, Peru. The source comes from Johanna (back vocals) who posted on her Instagram (Story) account a short video filmed during the Cranberries rehearsals yesterday at the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio in Limerick. At the very end of the video appears the setlist and The Cranberries Brasil did a screen capture below, so thanks to them for noticing!
For those who don’t necessarily follow The Cranberries on social medias everyday, you have to know that the whole band -including Dolores- has been rehearsing in Limerick for over a week now for the upcoming show in Peru next month. You can find a few pictures of these rehearsals on The Cranberries Instagram account.

Setlist off Johanna’s video:

news-2016-11-29-setlist-rehearsals

For those who can’t read:

Analyse
Animal
Wanted
Linger
When You Gone
Dreaming My Dreams
Just My Imagination
Ode
Loud And Clear
Free To Decide
Can’t Be With You
Conduct
Desperate Andy
Playboys
Salvation
Ridiculous
Zombie

Empty
You And Me
Promises
Dreams

 

Well, this is not really a proper spoil as this is the same set as the European shows this summer. Fans in Peru probably won’t be disappointed as they haven’t seen the band live for almost 7 years. Remember that The Cranberries didn’t visit the South American continent with their Roses Tour and the last time the band played in Lima was during the Reunion Tour in February 2010. This setlist will probably look fresh for all the fans over there.
