To the faithful, departing

The Cranberries get set to tour the world in '02

The Cranberries have announced dates for the first leg of a massive world tour, taking them from Copenhagen in February, through Europe to a late April show in Munich, and then on to North America in May.

The tour is both in support of current album Wake Up And Smell The Coffee and a celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the release of their debut long-player, the massive "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?"

To celebrate their first decade in pop, the Berries are also re-releasing their back catalogue in March. Fans can expect a boxed set as well as numerous extras, rarities, alternate versions and new artwork.

The quartet can hardly wait to be back on tour.

"We’re visiting a lot of new cities this year," Dolores told us, "including Latin America, an area we've yet to visit and are very much looking forward to.

"We’re also all really excited about the tour kicking off in Copenhagen, a city we haven’t visited since we started our career."

Stay tuned to for new Cranberries dates as they are confirmed.
