Erratum re Dolores in Limerick 2000 (=>1999)

July 6, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Erratum concerning the rare black and white photo tagged “Dolores in Limerick 2000” on the website akostra.livejournal.com and reported on CW 3 days ago.

A fan just sent us the picture below off a german magazine called “Petra” dated from 1999. Same photo session, almost the same pose. The session then can’t be from the year 2000 and was probably from early 1999.

Krzysztof Świstak, member of the Polish Facebook group “Forum The Cranberries”, found a very rare black and white photo of Dolores side by side with a Teddy bear in Limerick in the year 2000. The photo was taken by Olaf Heine and posted on the website akostra.livejournal.com

New video interview with The Cranberries published yesterday on German website dw.com
Entitled “The Cranberries’ comeback”, the video is about 2:30 min. long.
It’s a mix between 2 sources, one recorded on May 2, 2017 in Berlin during the first show of the European acoustic tour and the other one recorded during the band’s rehearsals in Limerick at ICO Studio possibly in March 2017. Both sources contain live footage and interview.

Dolores O’ Riordan: ‘You have to be strong’. Interview on The Business Post Magazine

June 30, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Journalist Nadine O’Reagan met the band back in April in a Dublin pub. The interview was then published in the Business Post Magazine issued on May 7th which featured Dolores O’Riordan on the cover (“She’s beautiful, Dolores O’Riordan. Sometimes the cameras don’t capture that. Today, as she sits in the Cobblestone pub in Smithfield in Dublin, the Limerick-born singer looks as dainty as a doll – her skin is porcelain, her close-cropped hair is a shiny black, and her military-style jacket from Marc Jacobs in Brown Thomas is on trend: tough, but also reinforcing her fragility”):

“You have to keep going,” O’Riordan nods. “You just have to be strong. And keep soldiering on. You just can’t lay down and die. There’s light at the end of the tunnel.”

Noel, Dolores, Fergal and Mike sat down to discuss various topics ranging from their early days and sudden fame to hobbies. Here are a few extracts (full interview is avaiable on the Business Post site – subscription required):

About the early days:

“For us, four kids from Limerick, who did a demo, took a chance and posted it to London – for us to get a positive letter, we were ringing each other, going: ‘Oh my God’,” says Lawlor, the gregarious drummer, as he sips a soft drink around the small table in the Cobblestone. “You have that buzz. Geoff [Travis, the founder of Rough Trade Records] was managing us a year later.”

About their relationship:

“We found that, for us, any problems have come from outside influences,” Hogan says, adding that it’s better when he and O’Riordan sit down and “thrash out” issues.

About hobbies:

O’Riordan enjoys swimming and meditating – she’s not into Spotify; she’s not much of a music listener by her own account, but she downloads meditations from iTunes. She travels with a yoga mat, she says, and she’ll meditate every day if the hotel room she’s in has space for her to lay out her mat. I ask her why she likes meditating so much, in particular.

Dolores also gave an insight on her back injury that would later prevent her from completing their summer tour:

“I love to swim (…) the breaststroke and the backstroke. Because I had a herniated disc last year. I had to cancel a couple of festivals. I’m hoping it doesn’t come back to haunt me. If I had this disc out, I’d have to be in a wheelchair, so that would be bad. I also like walking and painting”

The journalist also talks about Something Else defining it “gentle, uplifting and worth hearing”

“Love Letters From Limerick” featuring a new track by Fergal

June 20, 2017  |  Comments Off on “Love Letters From Limerick” featuring a new track by Fergal  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

“Love Letters from Limerick” is a short film (approximately 4 min. long) which was shown at the LIT presentation last Friday where the “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” giant sign was donated and unveiled. It showcases the creation of this inspiring project.

The film is now available on Vimeo and features a new track by Fergal Lawler simply called “Love Letters”

And as Tom Collins says about the sign: “I love where it is now, it’s on a great blue wall, it looks like a big cloud on a blue wall, it’s a happy cloud”


Everybody Else is Doing It So Why Can’t We?
Texas based sign painter and illustrator Sean Starr collaborated with Limerick sign painter Tom Collins to create a 10ft high 15ft wide hand painted sign placing the title of The Cranberries debut album centre stage on a large cloud. This video showcases the creation of the sign and its installation in a permanent home where it’s elevating message can inspire future generations. Featuring a new track by Fergal Lawler of The Cranberries.

For those who wanted to see the giant sign “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” in the streets of Limerick it’s too late! The sign has now moved and found a new home at the Limerick Institute of Technology also known as LIT.

Last Friday, June 16 at 4pm, there was a special presentation/ceremony with special guests Tom Collins (the local artist who created the sign) and a famous drummer named Fergal Lawler to unveil what has become the new sign on LIT’s campus.

The Cranberries explain into more details why Dolores’ back issues do not allow her to perform

June 19, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Since the band had to cancel the remaining European shows due to take place this summer, many fans have commented their social media, whether to support the band and send good vibes to Dolores or to express their disappointment.

Concerned by these comments, the band just posted a message a moment ago on their socials to explain into more deep why Dolores’ back problems do not allow her to perform on stage.

Indeed, it appears that the pain does impact her singing which increases the problem.
We strongly encourage everyone to read their below post, which is very clear and will be much appreciated by those who were seeking for an explanation.

Again, we’d like to underline that Dolores health is paramount, as the band already explained earlier, and wish her to get well soon with fond thoughts.

All The Cranberries European shows between May 20th and August 30th are cancelled (2 UPDATES)

June 16, 2017  |  Comments Off on All The Cranberries European shows between May 20th and August 30th are cancelled (2 UPDATES)  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

BREAKING NEWS: Following Wednesday announcement by French Promoter -GDP- that the May/June shows will in fact NOT be rescheduled, the Swiss promoter -Opus One- just emailed customers who had bought tickets for the show in Genève to let them know that “all dates due to take place between May 20th and August 30th are cancelled“. Here below a screen capture of their email in French:

Opus One then quotes the band as Ticketmaster.nl did earlier:

“We have really been thrilled to be back on the road and sharing our music with everyone and it’s with a heavy heart that we have had to pull these shows. Dolores is making good progress though we understandably do not want to jeopardise a full recovery. “

We can’t help but being saddened by the news, but as the band mentioned late May, Dolores health is paramount. Let’s note the band has not made any official statement yet regarding the situation.

Source: Opus One


UPDATE 7:00pm (UTC):
A fan sent an email through the official website a moment ago to be confirmed the announcement from Swiss concert promoter and was told pretty much the opposite as: “all shows are still going ahead apart from those that were cancelled a couple of weeks ago“.
Here’s a screen capture of his email below:

Whatever is going on, one can really question communication between management and promoters here…
Could the webmaster of the band’s official website possibly not be aware of these cancellations?
And could a local promoter make such an announcement up?
The situation is quite confusing…

We strongly advise fans to wait for official announcement from the band’s official website and socials. Also, if ever you receive an email from a promoter/ticket retailer we could have missed, please feel free to let us know so that we can keep everyone updated.

UPDATE June 17, 9:00pm (UTC):
The band just released an official statement on their Facebook page to confirm full cancellation of the European shows due to take place between May 22nd to August 30th. Let’s note that the US tour starting on September 11th will go ahead as planned.

BAND’S OFFICIAL STATEMENT:

***** The Cranberries – Statement *****

Most regrettably, Dolores O’Riordan has been instructed by her doctors to not resume touring as planned to help facilitate a full recovery to an ongoing back problem that she is currently receiving treatment for.

The Cranberries commented “It is with a heavy heart that we have had to pull these shows. Dolores is making good progress however we understandably don’t want to jeopardise a full recovery. We have really been thrilled to be back on the road and sharing our music with everyone, and so look forward to seeing everyone as soon as possible”.

All the band’s shows from 30th May to 30th August have been cancelled.

Second European promoter to confirm full cancelation of the acoustic European shows

June 16, 2017  |  Comments Off on Second European promoter to confirm full cancelation of the acoustic European shows  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

For those who have missed our post on Wednesday, French fans who had bought tickets for the shows in May and June that were to be postponed in the upcoming months received an email two days ago from French promoter -GDP- to inform them these shows “could not be rescheduled in the end

UK, Spanish, Italian, Swiss, and Dutch promoters had not given any news on their side yet, though Ticketmaster.nl just sent customers who were owning tickets for the show due to take place tonight at RAI the below email (screen captured):

None of our team members at Cranberries World can speak Dutch language though here’s an approximate translation made through Google:

We hereby inform you that the The Cranberries concert has been definitively canceled. As you may know, this even was already rescheduled once to a different venue before it got postponed indefinitely due to singer Dolores O’Riordan’s health issues.

Unfortunately, today, Dolores health does not allow her to be back on stage to perform (CW note: we’re not quite sure of the translation here). She needs time to recover from a back injury, and going back on tour prematurely could bring back the medical issues. Therefore, we can not guarantee to reschedule the concert in the short term and thus do not have any other choice but to cancel the show.

Below you can read the statement of the band:
“We have really been thrilled to be back on the road and sharing our music with everyone and it’s with a heavy heart that we have had to pull these shows. Dolores is making good progress though we understandably do not want to jeopardise a full recovery. “

We understand that you were looking forward to a nice performance, and we’re really annoyed to bring this news. We apologize for any inconvenience.

How can you get your money back?
You do not have to do anything. We will automatically refund the amount to the bill or credit card used to pay for the tickets. Within 14 days, the money will be credited by the credit card company. You can only expect a refund if you have purchased the tickets through Ticketmaster.

This new pieces of information are quite worrying and may imply that some more dates could be cancelled in the upcoming days. Indeed, the band is expected to play four electric shows in Italy next week to start their European summer festivals tour. It now looks very unlikely that these shows will take place.

We’ll keep you updated as soon as we know more on Dolores’ current state and if the situation is to impact -or not- the other European dates starting on July 29th in Norway up to August 13th in Orange, France.

Again, the CW team wishes Dolores a speedy recovery.

Bad news re European acoustic shows that were to be rescheduled

June 14, 2017  |  1 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

It seems that things do not look good for European fans who are awaiting for the 15 cancelled shows to be rescheduled.

Indeed, on May 24th, the band stated that they were working hard with local promoters to reschedule these shows.

This message was then quoted by the different promoters such as Opus One in Switzerland, who emailed customers to inform them that the rescheduled date would be announced “mid June”.

Later on, Spanish promoter – Doctor Music – posted on their Facebook page that both Spanish shows would take place and that the rescheduled dates would be known during the second week of June – which did not happen.

Today brings a much more worrying news as French promoter – GDP – emailed customers to explain that none of the French shows would be rescheduled in the end, as opposed to what they had stated on May 24th. Below the screen capture of the email in French:

Here’s our translation:

Dear customers,
Following our email dated Wednesday May 24th, we regret to inform you that, unfortunately, the concerts of The Cranberries that were due to take place in May and June could not be rescheduled. The below concerts are thus cancelled:

30 may: Tours – Le Vinci
31 may: Lyon – Amphithéâtre – Cité internationale
2 june: Nantes – Cité des Congrès
7 june: Marseille – Le Silo
9 june: Strasbourg – Palais des Congrès – Salle Erasme

Fans are invited to ask for a refund as per info below:

– Will-call tickets or e-tickets: Please send us your order number by e-mail and confirm that we can make the refund on the credit card used for the payment. If you changed your credit card, please send us your new credit card number and expiration date only (no security code needed for refunds). We will refund you within 2 to 3 business days.

– Tickets received by mail or DHL: please send us your tickets by mail at our address hereunder together with your bank account information. We will refund you by bank transfer within 2 to 3 weeks.

Please note the refunds will be closed after 09/09/2017
(no refunds after this date)

Thank you very much, kind regards

It would not be surprising if UK, Spanish, Italian, Swiss and Dutch promoters were to announce the same in the upcoming days.

We can’t help but hope this is not due to Dolores health but a schedule conflict, as this would imply that her medical issues have gotten worse.

Time will tell if the band will perform or not at the four Italian shows due to take place next week. As a reminder, Dolores doctors have advised her on May 22nd “to immediately cease work for the next 4 weeks” so one may imagine that Dolores is to meet her doctors again in the upcoming days to decide whether she can go back on tour or not.

Rescheduled European tour dates to be announced next week?

June 2, 2017  |  Comments Off on Rescheduled European tour dates to be announced next week?  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

As announced on May 24th, The Cranberries were forced to cancel 15 dates of their European semi acoustic tour with String Quartet due to take place in May & June as Dolores had “been instructed by her doctors to immediately cease work for the next 4 weeks for medical reasons associated with a back problem.

The band immediately explained that her health being paramount, they would work hard to try and reschedule these shows and advised fans to “hold on to [their] ticket until [they] can update further“.

While some promoters have already processed to refund the customers with no more delay, hope comes back today as the Spanish promoter – Doctor Music – just announced that the rescheduled dates would be known next week!
Let’s note Doctor Music is refunding everyone at the moment, stating that tickets bought for June 4th and 5th won’t remain valid, which means that fans will be invited to buy some brand new tickets for the rescheduled shows later on.

Here’s their statement below:

Earlier this week, fans who had bought their ticket for the concert in Genève, Switzerland had also received an email from the local ticket retailer to explain the new date would be announced “mid June”.

We’ll keep you updated as soon as we know more.
In the meantime, we wish Dolores a prompt recovery.

Recap Amsterdam / Lille / Paris #3

May 15, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Following Bruxelles concert, last week was affected by a cancellation in Amsterdam: the show that was due to take place at Koninklijk Theater had to be postponed in the afternoon after Dolores was diagnosed as ill with a heavy cold and related symptoms. The show will be rescheduled on June 16th at RAI theater.
Let’s note some fans got to meet Dolores on that day at the venue, as you can see on the below video in which she explains she’s got a virus:

It seems the cancellation was a wise decision as it turned out Dolores was able to come back on stage on Friday 12th in Lille. As often, the audience in Northern France did not disappoint and was, as expected, one of the loudest on the tour so far, enhancing the show and leading Dolores to speak a lot in French in between songs as she used to in the old days, letting the audience know “vous êtes le mieux” (you are the best) several times. She used the occasion to thank the crowd for their singalong and explain she had a “croaky voice” because she was sick, though she nonetheless managed to deliver an impressive performance, especially on the three new acoustic songs, with alternative lyrics on Why.


Same for the following crowded Paris show that took place on Saturday 13th, where the audience however got to hear a regular version of Why. One may note that the violinists were the same as on the first Paris play. Taking the situation into account, no surprise, the setlist remained unchanged for both these shows, though we may witness some changes once Dolores will be feeling better on the tour.
Like all shows so far on this “acoustic tour”, these two were sold out.

Here’s a cool pic of Dolores arriving at the Olympia in Paris in the afternoon (thanks to Danny and JeJe):

Below, our usual vids taken during the shows, please note that people in the stalls were not allowed to film AT ALL in Lille – and security guys took it very seriously – which explains why we don’t have any vid of The Cranberries on that date. However security was taking it easier during the D.A.R.K. Live PA performance so you can watch one of their songs below:

LILLE – D.A.R.K. Live PA – MONEY(?)

LILLE – THE CRANBERRIES – ZOMBIE (incomplete)

Recap on Esch-sur-Alzette + Bruxelles shows

May 9, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Our team is back to sum up these two gigs we attended!
Luxembourg saw the same 19 tracks setlist as in Paris #2, whereas Belgium was lucky enough to be added a 20th song: Loud And Clear!

ESCH-SUR-ALZETTE – ROCKHAL

01. Analyse
02. Animal Instinct
03. Linger
04. Just My Imagination
05. Ode To My Family

03. Linger
04. Just My Imagination
05. Ode To My Family
06. Wanted

17. The Glory
18. Rupture

19. You And Me
20. Dreams 


In terms of sound, both concerts appeared to have a much better sound than the Olympia shows, with a brilliant rendition of the chords! One may note that only one violonist is touring with the band, the 3 other members of the quartet are local instrumentalists who Dolores thanks every night and asks the crowd to applaud, though those in Belgium were privileged to be introduced in details by Dolores who gave their names.

Now in terms of emotion, it seemed to us that the lack of enthousiasm coming from the (huge) audience in Luxembourg -that was very calm- did not trigger a very dynamic set, as opposed to the overwhelming concert in Bruxelles where Dolores got more talkative than on the beginning of this tour, letting the crowd know that she had a lovely walk in a park in the afternoon, and dancing Irish steps as she used to on Liar back in the good ol’days etc…

Last, Dolores sang the -beautiful- “alternavie lyrics” of Why in Luxembourg but rendered the regular album version in Bruxelles, that was unusually played a little fast on that night 😉

Fans may also be interested in knowing that, in Bruxelles, for the first time of the tour, some signed vinyls were sold at the merch and actually sold out by the end of the show.

As for the D.A.R.K. live PA set featuring Olé Koretsky and DJ Wool, the setlist has not been identified yet as some song titles are still unknown and the boys do not have any setlist on stage for fans to grab. Maybe Olé will let fans know soon… 😉
Here’s a preview of the setlist with the tracks we can recognize (in running order):

Animal (? unidentified D.A.R.K. song feat. Dolores vocals)
Watch Out
Miles Away
China Girl (David Bowie cover)
Money (?)
Heartbreaker (?)

And for those who are still hoping for a featuring of Dolores on the D.A.R.K. set, it has not happened yet… but who knows what will happen next?

Recap on The Cranberries Paris shows – May 4th & 5th

May 6, 2017  |  5 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

No live review on our website on May 4th and May 5th for The Cranberries shows in Paris as most of our team members were attending the shows, so here we are now!

If the first night wasn’t too surprising as the band played the same setlist as in Berlin, the second night was much more special as we were lucky enough to enjoy the world premiere of Rupture.
Here’s the video below:

Let’s note that the band gave a live interview on FB from the Olympia on May 4th in which they confirmed what Dolores had previously mentioned in some recent interviews: the shows won’t actually be fully acoustic but a blend between acoustic and electric versions.
Also Dolores explained on stage on May 4th that they had decided to add some more electric parts to the show not to turn it into a “too boring” performance. This decision to make the set “more dynamic” was probably taken during the rehearsals for the European acoustic tour with String Quarters.

As a consequence, only the new songs from the album are fully performed acoustically on live. This might explain why the North American tour is not promoted as “acoustic”, as opposed to the headline shows in Europe starting from May to mid June.

The Olympia happened to be the first all seated venue on this tour, one may note that Dolores entered the stage on both night asking the crowd to stand up so as to rock the place, which everyone did.

Let’s also emphasise that on the first night, the quartet left the show before Dreams, whereas the song was played with the quartet on the second night!

If it seems that the setlist was “shortened” on the first evening, second evening left more space for the band to play longer outros on their songs, which was very appreciable.

Last, we should note that Dolores sang some alternative lyrics on “Why?” on both night (which did not happen in Berlin) with the lines below :

Somewhere at the crossroads of life
Somewhere in another dimension
Life it really hurts like a knife

In the meantime, here are the first pro pics that can be found on the Internet as well as some cool fans pics, we’ll update this post with some more in the upcoming days.
