  • First show of the “Roses Tour 2012” in Europe.
  • This concert was rescheduled from 18 June.
  • The whole first leg of the European tour was cancelled for a reason The Cranberries wanted to keep private.
  • In between the first two songs, Dolores apologized for this gigs’ postponement and explained she was not feeling well at the time mostly because of the recent death of her father.
  • As often when a new tour begins, Dolores showed up with a brand new hairstyle (blond bobbed hairstyle) which she never had before.
  • The “Interlude” turned out to be an instrumental version of “Shattered” similar to the one played on the “Reunion Tour”
  • First time ever “Fire & Soul” was played live.
  • Dolores didn’t play the guitar on “Free To Decide” because of a technical problem, she used the occasion to sign the vinyl of a fan.
  • First time “No Need To Argue” was played for years.
  • The Cranberries chose to play “The Journey” and not “Show Me”See setlist photo.
  • One of the very rare performances that doesn’t include “Animal Instinct” nor “Ode To My Family”
  • The concert was recorded by Concert Live. The limited recording was available for sale to the public right after the end of the gig for £20. It was also available for a limited period on their website at the same price.
  • Over the last decades the Hammersmith Apollo was renamed a lot of times: Hammersmith Odeon, Labatt’s Apollo, Carling Apollo Hammersmith and lately HMV Hammersmith Apollo. The day of that show, the venue recently reverted back its name to the 1932 original name: Hammersmith Apollo.
