The Cranberries Reunite for Fall Tour


To add to the growing list of bands reuniting this year, after a seven-year hiatus, the Irish band who created songs like “Linger,” “Zombie” and “Dreams,” The Cranberries, are back and have announced plans to tour the US in late fall.

The US tour will begin in November and will follow with a European tour in early 2010. Specific dates have yet-to-be announced. Lead singer Dolores O’Riordan has confirmed that the band will play classic hits as well as new material from her solo album, No Baggage which was released on August 25.

O’Riordan worked with Ontario’s Dan Brodback on writing and producing her album which The Cranberries’ official website describes as “a bright, clean sound that finds the singer's astoundingly emotive voice front and center.”

"I probably haven't worn my heart on my sleeve like this since the second Cranberries album (1994's No Need To Argue). It's at times very confessional and dealing with my true emotions,” O’Riordan said on “Everyone, through their experiences or their background, has had terrible moments where they think they can't handle it. With this record I'm trying to show that, no matter how bad things may seem, it's not really that bad in the big picture."

As for the tour, all of the band’s original members, Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawler, will be present.

The only question to ask now is, “Why did they have to let us linger?”
