A message from Dolores

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

“In Your Head” by Eminem

December 15, 2017  |  Comments Off on “In Your Head” by Eminem  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Eminem released today a new album called “Revival” which includes a track called “In Your Head”. Yes it is about “Zombie”. Not really a cover but a (rap) song that samples Zombie’s chorus and guitar.

Usually we never talk about cover songs/bands but as Eminem is quite famous and as The Cranberries even shared the news on their socials, this one is an exception.
Well… to be honest we should make no exception and no difference between famous and anonymous people but that’s the way it is. At least the man allows The Cranberries to be recalled to a larger and different audience and that’s always a good thing.

Talking about the song well… no comment!

“In Your Head” is track #17

Another 2 rarely seen photos on socials.
First one, probably from a meet and greet in 2002, was published today on Instagram by user n.i.c.k_1979 with the hashtag #momentofalifetime

Second photo was published on November 26, 2012 on Johnny’s Kitchen Facebook. Johnny’s Kitchen is an Irish Pub located in Lyon, France. The Cranberries were playing in Lyon on November 20th so the photo was then published a few days after, when the band was not in the city anymore.

Delores from The Cranberries in for a cup of tea and a chat!

 

 

Note: English natives will definitely never know how to write Dolores correctly!

“Xiaoshuo” behind the scenes photos

October 31, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

More details about the Chinese show “Xiaoshuo” with Gao Xiaosong. First the show is broadcast on the internet exclusively not on Chinese TV. This is an important detail, however it is followed by more than 2 million people.
As reported previously the team of the show went to Ireland and among many other things met Dolores and Noel in Limerick. We now have the exact date, September 3, 2017 and some behind the scenes photos.
Thanks to Alex Verveboy on Facebook group “Doors and windows – FANS – THE CRANBERRIES“.

Dolores and Noel on Chinese TV (2017)

October 23, 2017  |  Comments Off on Dolores and Noel on Chinese TV (2017)  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

An article entitled “Chinese tourists drawn to Ireland … by whiskey, hurling and The Cranberries” published today by sino.co.uk reveals that the host of “Youku TV show Morning Call” (晓说 ‘Xiao shuo in Chinese), Gao Xiaosong, went to Ireland last month and had the opportunity to meet Dolores and Noel in Limerick. The article includes a photo of the interview, so this is the most recent image of Dolores to this day.


sino.co.uk

Click here to watch the video. Dolores and Noel mostly appear in the last 4 minutes of the report. Unfortunately it is impossible to clearly hear what they say as the host speaks Chinese all the time. There’s also live footage of The Cranberries but nothing really new, images come from the show at Festi’neuch in Neuchâtel, Switzerland in 2016.
Thanks to Dolores O’Riordan Spain on Facebook for the link.

Noel and Dolores with Chinese TV host Gao Xiaosong

It seems that a large campaign started these days in China (well, at least on the “Morning Call” show) to promote Ireland as a must-see tourist destination. Last week The Irish Times already revealed most of the info in an article entitled “Pubs, hurling and the Cranberries used to lure Chinese here“.

Here’s two rarely seen photos of Dolores in the city of Lille, France on May 12, 2017. First one was published by Charlie’s Delicatessen’s on Facebook, a kind of café/restaurant where Dolores had a drink:

2 blockbuster trailers featuring the same cover of “Zombie”

October 15, 2017  |  Comments Off on 2 blockbuster trailers featuring the same cover of “Zombie”  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The artist Oumi Kapila just released a cover version of “Zombie”. We usually never report about cover songs/cover bands as there are too many each week and most of the time they are not very good or/nor interesting. Today is an exception as first, there is no big news these days in the Cranberries world, and secondly this cover song appears in 2 blockbuster trailers this month. Not that bad!

1st trailer is for the Xbox videogame “Middle Earth – Shadow of War” whose the whole soundtrack features Oumi Kapila’s version:

“Shadow of War” – Xbox – Trailer

2nd trailer is for the next season of “The X-Files” where Oumi Kapila’s version is just a part of the soundtrack among other music and dialogs:

“The X-Files” – Season 11 – Trailer

Below the full song by Oumi Kapila:

Oumi Kapila – “Zombie”

The question could be, why don’t all those blockbusters use the original Cranberries song… but that’s another story!

Thanks to Mark for the info.

Rare small advert for a “The Cranberry Saw Us” show (UPDATED)

October 1, 2017  |  Comments Off on Rare small advert for a “The Cranberry Saw Us” show (UPDATED)  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Oldies but goldies!
Below a rare early years concert advert for a venue called The Speakeasy in Limerick, Ireland and published on November 3, 1990 in the Limerick Leader, a local newspaper.

Among other bands: A Touch Of Oliver plus The Cranberry Saw Us

It was the good old days when The Cranberries were called The Cranberry Saw Us and one of the very first shows with Dolores on vocals and not anymore Niall Quinn, the band’s very first singer.

Advert for The Speakeasy

Quite a rare and 3rd advert concerning this show as usually most of the people and fans (including us) only know the existence of these following 2 adverts:

Flyer (Notice The Speakeasy mispelled)

Another newspaper ad

Many thanks to S.


UPDATE:
Another advert, another artwork, a 4th version for The Cranberry Saw Us concert at The Speakeasy. This small advert was published page 36 the day of the show (November 10, 1990) still in the local newspaper, Limerick Leader. Also to notice in this edition, an article page 29 to promote the show and featuring pictures of both bands that night… this article is quite known by the fans already.
