Noel Hogan from The Cranberries is taking part in a special Friday March 18th event in the National Museum of Ireland, Collins’ Barracks as part of the I. NY strand of Dublin’s famous St. Patrick’s Festival.
Running from 2.30pm-4pm, admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis.
Supported by the Consulate General of Ireland in New York, it will also be available afterwards as a free http://www.hotpress.com webstream, viewable worldwide from Friday March 25th.
From a Saturday Night Live appearance alongside George Clooney and their MTV Unplugged gig in the Brooklyn Academy of Music to an outdoors Central Park show and their participation in the 1996 MTV Video Awards in Radio City Music Hall, many of The Cranberries’ most magical moments took place in the Big Apple!
Noel will also be talking about The Cranberries’ other adventures on both sides of the Atlantic with Stuart Clark, the author of the first career-spanning Cranberries book, WHY CAN’T WE? which has been produced in association with the band.
“We’re delighted to have this chance to hear the story of The Cranberries in America, and to share it with an audience around the world as part of our national St. Patrick’s Festival,” enthuses its Artistic Director, Karen Walshe. “This year’s festival celebrates ‘Connections’, and there aren’t many Irish bands, or indeed artists of any type, that have connected with audiences in the way Dolores O’Riordan and The Cranberries have. Noel couldn’t be any more welcome.”
Telling their remarkable story through the back-pages of Hot Press, WHY CAN’T WE? also includes new contributions from Noel and his Cranberries bandmates Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawlor; Dolores’ mother, Eileen O’Riordan; her boyfriend and D.A.R.K. bandmate Olé Koretsky; Michael Stipe; Simon Le Bon; Smiths bass-player Andy Rourke; author Kevin Barry; and ‘Linger’ video director Melodie McDaniel.
This month also looms large in Cranberries ‘lore as it was on March 1st, 1993 that their classic debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We, was released on both sides of the Atlantic.
