Rare bootleg audio recorded from the audience.
The Cranberries in Austin, TX at Frank Erwin Center on 29 November 1993
Only 2 songs recorded as taper explains, “This is a rough, live audience recording of the last two songs The Cranberries performed as the opener for Duran Duran. The Cranberries performance that night was magical and sweet. I only got the tail end of the performance as they were opening for Duran Duran.”
“Zombie” + “Liar”
Rare photo posted on Twitter by Miki Berenyi (from the rock band Lush).
Dolores O’Riordan and Tanya Donelly (frontwoman of the band Belly) during the Belly/Cranberries tour 1993 at Pyramids Centre in Portsmouth on the 23 February 1993.
Cranberries fan Alan Martin has published on Twitter a photo showing memorabilia, including a setlist, a newspaper ad and a live audio cassette recorded at The Parkway in 1991.
On the setlist, we can read Atosa (Iosa) played two times on that show… and regarding Alan’s tweet, he taped it!
So this would be a second and third live recorded version of the song, the first and only one version available until now was recorded at University Of London Union on the 14 November 1991.

Hundreds of people arrived at Cross’s Funeral Home, Ballyneety, near the star’s Ballybricken home, to pay their respects to the Cranberries lead singer.
The three remaining members of The Cranberries – Mike and Noel Hogan, and Fergal Lawlor – joined O’Riordan’s mother, Eileen, and her five brothers and sister at the funeral home.
The singer’s partner, Ole Koretsky, who also played with O’Riordan in the alt-rock band D.A.R.K., was present.
The singer was laid out in an open coffin with rosary beads around her hands, next to photographs of her meeting the late Pope John Paul II and of her performing with her bandmates.
Family and close friends of Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan accompanied her to her home town church in Co Limerick on Monday night ahead of her funeral.
Candles lit the streets as her coffin was brought to the Church of Saint Ailbe in Ballybricken.
Two hearses, one carrying her coffin and another carrying floral tributes, arrived at the church shortly before 9.30pm.
Among the many wreaths was one from Irish pop group The Corrs.
Earlier, hundreds of people had gathered outside Cross’s Funeral Home in Ballyneety where her remains were in repose.
Irish President Michael D Higgins paid his sympathies to the singer’s family and signed a book of condolence.
After signing one of four books of condolences outside the village funeral home, President Higgins spent fifteen minutes inside privately talking to O’Riordan’s loved ones.
Afterwards, paying tribute to the adored songbird, he said: “I think it’s very important to pay tribute to the contribution Dolores made, and I also wanted to meet her mother Eileen and her fabulous huge family of nephews and nieces who were very important to her.”
“It’s so profoundly sad that someone so young is taken from us, but it’s equally important also to pay tribute to (her) work and music. It is also to the incredible credit of all those who have appreciated the music and the songs and the performances and the band, that they have come out in such numbers to make their tribute. It’s so appropriate and it is generous, and I hope that her family will get all the support hey need.”
“Limerick is very very proud of (her). As her teachers have been saying, she was a star that shun bright from the very beginning, and I wish her peace. Our sympathies go out to her mother Eileen and her family.”
