REVIEWS

NOTES

  • Sold out. The Cranberries could have sold out 3 times such was the demand for tickets.
  • Hometown gig after a successful 4-month tour of USA.
  • 2 months prior to the show, Dolores sent a message to the local newspaper “Limerick Leader” published on 18 October 1993 (see related article).
  • Anecdote: First tickets sold had a thumb print logo on it. That thumb print was the one of Ber Angley, promoter of the show.
  • Earlier that day, a mayoral reception was staged at the City Hall to celebrate the band homecoming. Family, friends, media and other guests heard Mayor Jan O’Sullivan pay tribute to The Cranberries. Watch here a RTÉ News report broadcast on 17 December 1993.
