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
07. When You’re Gone

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.
