There's no word yet though on Irish dates.
Having swung through a goodly part of North America, the reformed Cranberries have announced a Latin American tour which takes them to Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela and Mexico followed by a European jaunt, which includes a tasty looking gig in London’s Royal Albert Hall on March 31st and a visit shortly after that to the 20,000-capacity Zenith arena in Paris.
There’s no word yet on Irish dates, but we’d be surprised if some aren’t tacked on. There's been much speculation in Limerick about them playing a big homecoming show over the summer in Thomond Park – an idea that we know appeals to the band.
Stateside reviews have been overwhelmingly positive with the Chicago Sun Times describing them as a “band playing with passionate force to thank its stalwart supporters, while staking a new claim for the future.”
Talking to the same paper, Dolores O’Riordan revealed that a new album is on the cards.
“Noel has been sending me lots of music, and I've been continually writing,” she says. “It's one of those things where we have to see what happens. There's no point in bringing out a crappy record. You want it to be good, so hopefully the creative juices are flowing."
