Limerick four-piece to tour together after a seven year break
As hinted on HotPress.com last week, the original Cranberries line-up is to reform in the near future. Dolores O'Riordan has confirmed that the band are planning a tour for later this year.
"I've decided to reunite with my former band members in The Cranberries and we will be writing new songs and performing tracks off my new album as well as our greatest hits during the shows," O'Riordan stated.
According to guitarist and co-songwriter Noel Hogan: “Over the last few years, each member of the band has had time to work on different projects and learn so much from their experience. Now the time is right for The Cranberries to bring all of this together and move forward.”
Touring will begin at the end of the year in North America and make its way to Europe in early 2010, with dates to be announced shortly.
Today also marks the release of Dolores O'Riordan's solo album, No Baggage.
