Mexico City Gig Review

April 11, 2000  |  Comments Off on Mexico City Gig Review  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The band has just completed one their Mexico City gigs. A good mixture of old and new songs were done, but no new songs, as presumed before. The following review was written thanks to David Marquez

“I went to yesterday’s Cranberries concert in Mexico City, and I’d like to share my experience with you. I’ve been a Cran fan since the “Everybody else is doing it…” album release in Mexico, and have been listening to them since then. I also went to their first Mexico City concert when they were touring with the “No need to argue” album.
My girlfriend works at a local radio station, so she got us “Meet and Greet” tickets, so we could go to the aftershow “party” with the band. I was really excited about this so i took along with me the booklets from all their official albums so i could have them signed.
The concert started 1:30 hour late, because they had their equipment stopped at customs, but the waiting was worth. They played lots of Bury the Hatchet songs, starting the concert with Promises, but they also played Animal Instinct, Just my Imagination, Desperat Anda (whicha was really cool!), they did Delilah, and also Dying in the Sun. I was very happy because they played my all time favorite song: “Can’t be with you”, which in my opinion, along with Fleetwood Mac’s “Go your own way” were the best songs of the concert. They also played songs from the first album: Linger, Pretty (which i personally don’t like too much), Wanted (payed in a very fast tempo, sounds great!) and ended the concert with Dreams. The concert lasted 2:07 hours exactly.

There’s one thing i’d like to know your opinion: I think Dolores sucks big time as a dancer. There were several songs in which she “danced” and she looked very goofy, she has absolutely no rythm!!!

After the concert ended, we were taken backstage where we met them. I was AMAZED by Dolores cuteness. I can tell you that I didn’t think that Dolores was pretty. From all the photographs I’ve seen of her in my whole cran fan time, none of them reflects Dolores real beauty. My girlfriend and I had chance to speak a little bit with Dolores and Feargal, (they were supposed to be there only for 10 minutes) and Dolores (she’s so beautiful!) told us that she was amazed on how we’ll we spoke in english, we asked her to autograph our cd booklets and she kindly did, she asked us on our opinion on the concert, which we told her had been lots of fun, and then we asked her on what she thought about Mexico (maybe an obvious and stupid question) to which she answered she was very intrigued and interested by Mexican Culture, and that she’d like to have more time to visit some of the most important ancient sites in Mexico. I have to tell you that i couldn’t really pay much attention to what she said, becasue as I told you, she really is beautiful, and I just kept staring at her. Then we spoke with Feargal, he also asked us our opinion on the concert, he said that he had to play on rented equipment, because his drum set was never released by customs, then he told us that they were releasing a “Bury the Hatchet” rerealease, but with the complete session, meaning that all of the b-sides from that album would be available. They also said that they would record a new album to be released in the first months of 2001. We took a picture with the whole band, which as soon as i develop the film, i’ll send it to the list. I also have pictures (which I think may be good) of Dolores alone, and the band members alone, which I will also send them to you if you want to. The concert was lots of fun and brought me back lots of good memories by listening to old Cran songs. I was much more of a fan by the time i went to their first visit to Mexico, but nevertheless, i can tell you that meeting them made me very happy. If you ever have the chance to see Dolores, face to face (not on stage), you’ll be amazed by her simple beauty.

David Marquez”

Espárrago Rock 2000

April 10, 2000  |  Comments Off on Espárrago Rock 2000  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries’ playing time for the Espárrago Rock Festival, which will take place this Saturday in Spain has been confirmed. The band will play at an astounding 1:30 in the morning, one of the last bands to perform. They follow Skunk Anansie, which performs at 11:15 (So I suppose that means the Crans technically play on Sunday?)

Chunky News Bits

April 6, 2000  |  Comments Off on Chunky News Bits  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

The pretty Cranberries has posted a nice set of news bits, coming from a recent chat of the band at the Mexican page El Foco (“The Center”). The following has been confirmed:

-Album #5 is currently slated for a June 2001 Release
-The fifth album will include a 4-string quartet, as seen in the first few albums
-The band has finally gained full rights to the “Uncertain” EP and is considering including the tracks in an upcoming B-Sides/Rarities compilation (Can we say “Odd Bits & Hits”?)
-There has been quite a stir recently (ie “The Cranberries Revolution”) about MTV’s refusal to play “You and Me”. The band is not concerned, as there are many other ways to present their music.
-Dolores is still considering making a film when she gets time off from touring
-Fergal is in favor of MP3’s on the Internet, but Dolores is against it (Interesting… we all know Fergal can’t afford the real CD’s!)
-Fergal is very happy with the birth of his son
-They do not consider their music Celtic
-The band doesn’t think they are competeing with U2, as the only thing they have in common is their origin
-Dolores is planning on changing her hair again…. (so what’s new?)

Thanks to The pretty Cranberries, we now have scans of that newly-issed “Dreams” promo in Spain. Now why they would re-issue a single for an eight-year-old song, I don’t know, but I guess it still has enough demand that radio stations can still play it.

Sessions at West 54th Promotion

March 27, 2000  |  Comments Off on Sessions at West 54th Promotion  |  by Zombieguide Archives  |  The Cranberries

Borders, a US-based music and book store, has an in-store display for Sessions at West 54th. The sign gives all of the information about the show, expecially that it is a show for public networks, with little profit involed. Below the sign are the albums of past, present, and upcoming artists, and of course, “Bury the Hatchet” is on the rack — even though the show doesn’t air for another two months.

Other than the obvious new haircut for the new year, a natural brown longer cut, the astute will observe something else — a new tattoo! On her right shoulder, opposite her “Don” tattoo (which she got a few years back), there is a Celtic-style cross. Here are two enlargements:
