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 “Fête 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 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.

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!

December 25, 2016  |  Comments Off on Happy Birthday to Noel Hogan 45 years old today!  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan, The Cranberries

HO HO HO!
It’s now midnight in Ireland and it’s December 25, 2016.
It’s not only Santa’s day, it’s also someone’s birthday.

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

Noel, last week in Perú

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 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.

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 Perú 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!

The first pictures of the boys in Lima were posted by The Cranberries on their Instagram account just a few minutes ago. The band was rehearsing today at La Fabrika Records for the upcoming show next Saturday at Festival Vivo El Rock 8.

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:

The Cranberries have arrived in Perú (UPDATED)

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

The first pictures of Dolores and Olé Koretsky arriving in Perú 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

 

MORE PICS:

Thanks to cabezahuecape and DORSpain


UPDATE DEC.14:
More pictures, thanks to Cranberries Perú

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 Perú 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

When You Gone
Dreaming My Dreams
Just My Imagination
Ode
Loud And Clear
Free To Decide

Conduct
Desperate Andy
Playboys

Empty
You And Me
Promises

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.

This Sunday Noel Hogan posted on Twitter“First day of Cranberries rehearsal tomorrow. Peru show coming up.” And today the first photo of the rehearsals appeared on the band’s Instagram and fans discovered Mike, Dolores and crew members inside the Irish Chamber Orchestra Studio located at Limerick University in Limerick, Ireland. The band already rehearsed in that studio before (for previous concerts) and even recorded there the next Cranberries album with the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

Noel Hogan at the “BMI London Awards 2016” (UPDATED)

October 10, 2016  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan, The Cranberries

It all started a few days ago, on October 7th, when Noel Hogan twittedSo here’s what happening early next week. Dolores & I are up for an award” with a close-up photo of the possible invitation (?) received. What a great and unexpected news!

news-2016-10-10-bmi-1

Earlier today Noel posted a route map of his flight from Shannon (IRL) to London (UK) with the following note “BMI awards tonight.” Good news: Noel will be attending the ceremony, though no sign of Dolores yet!

news-2016-10-10-bmi-2

The BMI London Awards is a music industry ceremony which honors the UK/European songwriters and publishers of the past year’s most-played BMI songs on American radio and television. This year the ceremony is held at the Dorchester Hotel in London where Sting is to be named BMI Icon in recognition of his award-winning career and influence on popular music for more than four decades.
At this point we had no details regarding the Cranberries prize.

Later in the evening the first pictures appeared on the internet and fans discovered a very handsome Noel Hogan in a suit and a BMI medal on his chest, proving that Dolores would not show up at the event.

Following the ceremony, Noel published a photo of the BMI’s plaque he received “in recognition of the great national popularity as measured by over 3 million broadcast performances attained by DREAMS“.
Noel wrote: “So I got this. 3 million plays on US radio 🙂

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CRANBERRIES!!!

The Cranberries “5 Classic Albums”: first pictures

October 10, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The box set is quite flat, like a single CD and contains the first 5 albums of the band in their classic versions and not “The Complete Sessions” (as far as the first 4 albums are concerned). All is thin cardboard made, the box itself and the 5 album sleeves inside. Only the CD’s got a new and different artwork. No booklet nor lyrics here.

[EDIT:]
One of our readers Ricardo, thanks to him, noticed a big mistake concerning the album “Wake Up”.
Indeed the back cover of the album inside is announcing 16 tracks (13 + 3 bonus tracks) when the back cover of the box set is announcing only 13.
“Wake Up” would be the only album with bonus tracks? How weird!
The only solution to know the truth was to check the CD itself… and unfortunately there’s no B-sides nor hidden tracks. Only the 13 classic tracks and the CD ends with “Chocolate Brown”.
This is definitely the 5 classic albums!

Cranberries.com : new official website launched today

September 21, 2016  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Title says it all.
After 9 months of patience cranberries.com is finally launched!
The band just announced it a couple of hours ago today on all their social medias.

news-2016-09-21-cranberries-website-launched-today

Three things to notice:
1. The image on the homepage features green and orange stripes (color of the Irish flag)
Could that be a preview of the artwork of the band’s upcoming album with the Irish Chamber Orchestra?
2. Gallery has a lot of new pictures.
3. Biography reveals “2017 promises to be a very, very special year for The Cranberries in terms of touring and recording.”

The Cranberries in concert in Lima, Perú… now (almost) official

September 14, 2016  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

For those who were expecting nothing more to happen for The Cranberries or D.A.R.K. late 2016 following all the concerts and tour cancellations, you were wrong!
Dolores O’Riordan Spain, just found out a great new clue which (almost) comes as an official confirmation that The Cranberries will indeed play in Lima, Perú on December 17, 2016 at Festival Vivo X El Rock 8 in just 3 months from now!
Indeed, the rock band Papa Roach just published on their Instagram account the festival line-up featuring The Cranberries. What was a possible mistake published by Bandsintown a few days ago turns out to be a spoiler.

news-2016-09-14-papa-roach-instagram-lima-peru

Will there be more South/North American dates to come? What about the D.A.R.K. shows Andy Rourke was hoping to add in North America?
Time will tell…

Thanks to DORSpain for finding this.

New Cranberries box set to be released on October 7th

September 12, 2016  |  8 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Although it might seem out of the blue, it looks like Universal Music is about to (rerere)release almost all The Cranberries albums/sessions (?) on October 7th, 2016…

Indeed, the below item has just appeared on different websites such as Amazon or eBay under the name “5 Classic Albums”.

news-2016-09-12-tc-5-classic-albums-boxset

The box set should contain five CDs although Amazon states there is “one disc” inside.
Indeed, if you search for the Universal 5 Classic Albums collection on the Internet, you’ll find box sets for different artists such as Status Quo, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others, that all include five discs.

We can thus imagine the box set features the band’s first five albums Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We, No Need To Argue, To The Faithful Departed, Bury The Hatchet and Wake Up And Smell The Coffee.

This is only an assumption, but what’s for sure is that the cover of the box set looks just GREAT !
