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
06. Wanted
07. When You’re Gone

09. I Can’t Be With You
10. Conduct
11. Desperate Andy
12. Salvation
13. Ridiculous Thoughts
14. Zombie

15. Why?
16. The Glory

BRUXELLES – CIRQUE ROYAL

01. Analyse
02. Animal Instinct
03. Linger
04. Just My Imagination
05. Ode To My Family
06. Wanted
07. When You’re Gone

09. Loud And Clear

10. I Can’t Be With You
11. Conduct

16. Why?
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.

The Cranberries European Tour 2017 starts today in Poland

May 1, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries European tour 2017 starts today in Poland. Just like the European Tour last year, the Polish fans have the chance to see the band in concert first.
It’s still unclear whether this show is part of the acoustic tour or not. Probably not… we will know soon.
It’s hard to understand why the band doesn’t communicate more on this point as there clearly are 2 different types of show in Europe this year.

Anyway this is the day and this post will be updated all day and night long on what’s happening now in Poland. The band arrived yesterday in Wrocław and some of the band members posted photos of the city on their Instagram accounts. Here’s one pic by whiteprism/Johanna Wiseley (backing vocals) who, by the way, just announced she was pregnant. The CW team would like to wish her all the best!

Here’s the poster:

and 2 tickets for tonight’s show

U.S. and Canadian dates presales: where and when (UPDATED)

April 30, 2017  |  8 Comments  |  by Camille  |  The Cranberries

Some of our readers are asking if there are presales for the upcoming North American Cranberries shows. The answer is yes and it seems there are lots of them! To be honest, this looks like a real mess as some shows feature 10 different presales between May 2nd and May 5th (like VIP packages, Spotify presales, cardmember preferred tickets, The Cranberries fan presale, mobile app presale and more…)

Also, one may note that in their recent interviews, Dolores and Noel have always spoken about 18 dates, which means that 4 more shows might remain to be announced. We may imagine that they’re planning to double some shows (such as NYC as Dolores mentioned several times they would be giving 2 shows there) when the 1st one will be sold out.

Here’s our attempt at listing the presales below:

11-Sep – Nashville, TN – Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Ticketmaster / First presale on May 3rd, general onsale on May 5th

13-Sep – Atlanta, GA – The Tabernacle
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th / Floor: standing GA, balcony: reserved seating

16-Sep – New York, NY – Terminal 5
Axs / General onsale on May 5th

18-Sep – Washington, DC – The 9:30 Club
Ticketfly / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on June 22nd

20-Sep – Philadelphia, PA – The Fillmore
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th / General admission only

21-Sep – Boston, MA – House of Blues
Live Nation / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

23-Sep – Montreal, QC – Place des Arts
Place des Arts (English version) / First presale on May 2nd, general onsale on May 5th

A few more dates might be announced soon as the band said in their recent interviews that the U.S./Canadian tour was counting 18 dates including 2 in New York.

Let’s also note that, still according to the recent interviews and to the fact this announcement does not mention any “acoustic” show, it all tends to show that this “something else tour”, unlike the European tour, will be performed with a string quartet, but not acoustically.
Also, Dolores and Noel previously mentioned that in those cities, they should not be touring with ICO members but some local strings musicians.

Last, the band also confirmed earlier today during the “Gerry Kelly” radio show on BBC Radio Ulster that a South American tour will follow in the fall including Brazil, Argentina, Chile etc… They’re also hoping to perform in Australia by the end of the year.
They added that they are planning on working on some new material during this leg of the tour so as to release a new album afterwards.

The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene – RTE 2FM – interview

April 27, 2017  |  Comments Off on The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene – RTE 2FM – interview  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A few hours ago the 4 members of The Cranberries were on Irish Radio RTE 2fm on “The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene” show. The interview was prerecorded yesterday during their press day in Dublin and broadcast around noon today. Just before the broadcast, Nicky Byrne posted a photo with the whole band on his Twitter account.

Still before the broadcast RTE2FM also posted a multiview photo on their Twitter account.

The interview is about 15 minutes long and starts with questions about The Bachelorette, the music industry being different today, the early years when sending demo tapes and receiving record companies letters/answers, the day when and where Zombie was written.

Then one of the hosts asks about Linger.
Dolores: “it’s about first kiss and how the guy broke my heart”
“Does he know the song’s about him?” replies one of the host
Dolores: “I actually got a letter from him about 10 years later, he just said, you know I’m sorry”

About Irish shows coming up soon, are they nervous or is it exciting.
Noel: “A bit of both, you’re far more aware of it, a lot of family out there and at the same time you can’t wait to do it because we do this a lot all over the world and a lot of people aren’t aware of that so it’s nice to kind of come home, we don’t do it that often so it’s always special when we do it”

About more Irish dates.
Noel: “We never say never”
Dolores: “but after this tour it’s the U.S. in September and then they want us to go in South America

About the I.C.O. and the NYE gig and if they had already worked with an orchestra before.
Dolores: “Actually Linger, the original recording, there was a quartet used on that”

About the upcoming shows and the kind of songs they’re gonna be performing.
Noel: “Mainly the album that’s coming out, they’re kind of a semi acoustic with the quartet, a lot of the songs in this album I guess were singles over the years so we’ll be doing those. There’s some new songs written for this album … it may change a bit as we go along then add in and take out songs as the weeks go by but there’s enough to cover… the set is an hour and a half, an hour and twenty minutes.”

About another studio album.
Dolores: “Noel writes more on the road cos he has more time so he sends me bits and pieces so it’s good going on tour cos we get to write for a bit.”

About D.A.R.K.
Dolores: “…the material is very interesting, kind of electronic and it’s also very ambiant, very different to what i’ve done before. Olé is opening up for us on his own but then probably when we swing over to America Andy will probably come on stage and do a few gigs with him.

Special thanks to the fabulous Jackie Hogan for letting fans know about this broadcast just on time.
You Rock!

EDIT: Podcast now available on this link.

For those who missed the band signed copies from The Cranberries official store, you can still preorder Dolores signed copies from Newbury Comics

Some of you might remember that in the past Newbury already sold signed CD’s of The Cranberries and Dolores solo (Roses, No Baggage). Customers received a brand new CD still factory sealed and a signed CD booklet apart. Yes it makes 2 booklets. Even if there never is details about that, it might be the very same today.

Please note that CD booklet will be autographed by Dolores only and not the whole band in comparison to the no longer available signed copies from the band’s official store.

Thanks to Cranberryesque for this valuable information!!

BREAKING NEWS: upcoming U.S. shows won’t be acoustic

April 24, 2017  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Today appeared on the internet 2 new interviews with Dolores. Both are quite long.
The Songfacts.com interview is very focused on “Tell me about this song and that one”
and the ArtistDirectInterviews.com interview is more classic with the usual questions about Bachelorette, Chamber Orchestra, 25th anniversary celebration, the 3 new songs, tours etc..

HOWEVER:

One question in the ArtistDirectInterviews concerns the next US tour still to be announced soon. It looks like the acoustic shows won’t happen over there. The Cranberries will play ONLY ELECTRIC SHOWS.

Here’s what Dolores answers:

D O’R: Well, those venues – I still like performing in those venues. I prefer having electric guitars in the small and crowded, packed venues. So we’re doing the quartet – we’re bringing some electric guitars so it’s blend of electric and acoustic. We were looking at coming over to the States in September – but that will be full live electric, because the venues seem to be more catering a full live electronic show… so those two thousand seaters – the venues are more appropriate than putting a string quartet into a rock venue.

Also to notice in her answer: the European acoustic shows will feature an electric part when she says “it’s blend of electric and acoustic” she is talking about the upcoming acoustic shows in Europe!
Tricky…
