Last January 24, the West Coast entertainment correspondent from ABC News Radio, Jason Nathanson, shared on Instagram a photo with The Cranberries. The above article has no credits but there is a huge possibility that the author is Jason.

Here we go, the 62nd Grammy Awards are about to start.
2:00 PM (PST)
The band has arrived at Staples Center and posted two pics on socials already – looking absolutely stunning!
For what we understand, the first part of ceremony and Red Carpet are available for everyone to watch online on grammy.com, it is unclear yet whether the boys are part of the “Premiere Ceremony” or the second one (the main one).
Our team will be watching the two ceremonies and keeping fans updated on this page throughout the evening/night so keep on checking this page for updates, and cross all fingers!!!
2:17 PM (PST)
2:29 PM (PST)
2:59 PM (PST)

The band just posted the below message:
3:50 PM (PST)
Breaking: The results have been announced already and Cage The Elephant won the Grammy for Best Rock Album during the Premiere Ceremony. The Cranberries did not win but did us proud nonetheless. We love you lads!
Just a few minutes after the results, billboard.com published a video interview recorded pre-show on the red carpet:
And to conclude the evening, rte.ie published a great photo of the boys on the red carpet:
…as well as Cultura Colectiva Plus on Twitter:
One of our readers, Meggie T, sent us a few photos taken yesterday at GRAMMY Museum. She had the opportunity to meet Olé Koretsky and Dan Brodbeck who were kind enough to take photos and talk with the fans after the show. Thank you very much Meggie!
UPDATE – FEBRUARY 5
Another reader, Midori C, also sent us pics taken that same day. Just like Meggie, she met Olé Koretsky and Dan Brodbeck after the interview/show outside the building. She also had the opportunity to meet Fergal, Noel, Mike and Olé before the interview. They all stopped to talk to fans, take pictures and sign autographs. Midori says it was an amazing day she has dreamed of and all the guys were so nice. Thank you very much Midori!
The Cranberries and Olé Koretsky were at GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles for an intimate discussion moderated by Scott Goldman. The video was broadcast live on Facebook by Billboard and the replay is now available:
For those living in Ireland exclusively, you still have 8 days on the RTÉ Player to watch the replay of “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas” that was broadcast on RTÉ 2 on Friday 27 December 2019.
The 26 min. documentary includes a part dedicated to the recording of the song “Angela’s Christmas” and there is even an interview with Olé Koretsky recorded after Dolores’s passing.
For those who are not in Ireland these days the link won’t work and will return an error message:
…so your only way to watch it is to grab the official “Angela’s Christmas” DVD released last November in the US where the documentary is part of the special features (DVD Bonus).
Some more information about the “Something Else” vinyl that was supposed to be reissued on 22 November 2019 and which was delayed to 29 November 2019, then to 29 May 2020, then to further announcement.
For now information is still very confusing as some stores are announcing a new release date on the 31 of January 2020 (like Amazon USA) when some others are still announcing the double vinyl to be released in May. Even Amazon is not saying the same depending on your country!
More importantly, the new release would in fact be a purple vinyl edition! Some record stores already received their copies and put them on sale straight away (like spellboundrecords in New Zealand) and now the very first images have started to surface as you can see below:
So check directly with your record store(s) as no one is saying the same at the moment, whether it is about the release date, the color, or the price…
UPDATE – JANUARY 30
The vinyl is now in stores:
However it seems that a few people who ordered their copy in UK received an email to cancel and refund or choose another item. According to the email, the vinyl was just meant to be sold on The Cranberries own webstore, which is still not the case at this very moment. Weird!
Thanks to Dan for the info.
UPDATE – JANUARY 31
Like in UK, the release was cancelled in Germany.
Amazon US says it’s been delayed rather than cancelled but it’s not available at the moment and it was supposed to be shipped today.
For now New Zealand and France seem to be the only places it’s been released. Will the vinyl finally appear on the band’s webstore like the above email says?
This is definitely one of the most frustrating releases for fans. To be continued…
The band Blitz Vega appeared on the show “Kyle Meredith with…” the interview series presented by WFPK/Consequence of Sound. Among other things, band members Andy Rourke and KAV also discussed the loss of Dolores O’Riordan.
The podcast was posted on YouTube on 15 January 2020:
Noel, Mike and Fergal will appear at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles on January 23rd for an intimate discussion moderated by Scott Goldman. Grab your ticket now if you’d like to attend, price is $45.

It seems that the jacket worn by Dolores in the official “Just My Imagination” video was re-auctioned and sold last year at victormeeauctions.ie Thanks to joanna.cran.pic on Instagram for the info and pics!
The jacket was originally auctioned for charity in 2003, read the original Zombieguide news here.
According to Amazon UK, the compilation “Dreams The Collection” will be released on vinyl – for the first time ever – on the 6 March 2020. Will the vinyl include all 20 tracks included on the CD, will it be 1LP or 2LP, there is no more details yet…
Price: £13.99 + shipping
Thanks to Stéphane for the info!
UPDATE – JANUARY 23, 2020
Track listing of the vinyl has been revealed. Half the tracks omitted compared to the CD version (they did the same thing with “Say What You Want: The Collection” by Texas) which definitely means 1 vinyl only. However, it is the first official vinyl release of “Analyse”.
3. When You’re Gone
4. Dreaming My Dreams
5. Ridiculous Thoughts
7. Just My Imagination
10. I Can’t Be With You
Thanks to Dan in the comments below for the information.
Following many complaints regarding the expensive shipping costs for non-US residents of the CalenDolores 2020 available from Etsy (and where you couldn’t even combine shipping when ordering 2 copies or more) theHand made a second version of his calendar available from Lulu where shipping costs are more reasonable.
Pay attention, this is really a second version of the calendar and not the same as Etsy shipped from another seller. There are several differences such as format, materials and number of pages. The price of the calendar is a little more expensive compared to the Etsy version, but if you add shipping it makes a big difference (again for those living outside the US) and combining is possible!
COUPON CODE: ONESHIP (free or reduced shipping costs until December 19th)
NEW COUPON CODE: LULU15 (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd)
NEW COUPON CODE: ONEFIVE (save 15% on calendar until January 2nd – UK & Ireland only)
Yesterday, Councillor Michael Sheahan Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, along with Limerick Culture and Arts Office, Limerick City and County Council, made presentations to the recipients of a number of recently awarded bursaries. Among them, Emma Langford received the Dolores O’Riordan Music Bursary Award 2019 in the presence of members of Dolores’ family (Dolores’ mother Eileen, Dolores’ brother PJ and his wife).
Photos of the presentations were posted today on the Facebook account of the Limerick Arts Department:
To mark the occasion, Emma invited musicians and Limerick artists touched by Dolores’ legacy to join her after the ceremony for a photo at the new Dolores mural. She posted 2 pics later on the evening on her socials (Twitter, Facebook):
The €4,000 bursary will provide funding to cover ongoing production for Emma’s second album, and contribute to the costs of a music video for her recently released single, “The Winding Way Down to Kells Bay”. Congrats Emma!
An unauthorised book on Dolores O’Riordan was set to be published next week, but Dolores O’Riordan’s family have said that they don’t in any way endorse it, and will getting publication stopped. They reported that the book was full of inaccuracies (like the title for instance) and speculations and also violated copyright. They also said that the family and the band are upset by it, and especially Dolores’ mother.
The family urged the fans not to buy it.
Early as usual, the official “Promises” music video remastered in HD is now online:
This was the last music video to be remastered in HD.
A few videos are missing and were not on the list… will they be released in HD as well?
UPDATE – NOVEMBER 28
This morning, Draw Out – Urban Exhibitionists published on Facebook 3 photos of the mural. The weather wasn’t really great in Limerick today.
A little later, at noon, Cllr Daniel Butler published on Twitter 3 awesome photos from 3 different angles. She was almost done but the rain stopped the work for a while.
…and tonight Dreams Fest 19 just shared on Facebook 5 photos of the mural done. You may recognize one of Dolores’ brothers, Brendan O’Riordan and his family on a few pics.
