The Cranberries are to be again on the main stage of international live tours : Rome will welcome them at the Ippodromo delle Capannelle as part of the event Rock in Roma for a huge concert on 5th July 2010 singing their greatest hits and some new songs too !
The band is an Irish pop-rock group born in 1990s.
Noel and Mike Hogan, two brothers from Limerick , formed the band with drummer Fergal Patrick Lawler in 1990. Dolores O’Riordan won the audition to become the vocalist singing the song “Linger”.
The band was originally called The Cranberry Saw Us, a pun that makes the verse to “Cranberry Sauce”.
Their demo sold well locally, so they recorded new songs and signed to major label Island Records. Their first piece was a flop. But then, with the advent of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can not We? the group’s success grew unabated. The second single, Linger, immediately became a big hit in Britain and the United States . The single Dreams then followed the success of the first songs and shortly after the group became one of the most famous and later used by television (advertising, television, etc.).
In 1994, O’Riordan married Don Burton, the band’s manager. O’Riordan status caused tensions within the group during the recording of No Need to Argue, a new success that includes the famous Zombie (violence in Northern Ireland ) and Ode to My Family. The success of this album is a contributory factor which subsequently grew many British bands like Oasis, Radiohead, Blur and Placebo.
After a period of separation that lasted seven years in which team members have dedicated themselves to their individual projects, Dolores O’Riordan, Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler Mike Hogan have decided to return to perform together and plan the future of the group planning a tour and announcing going back into the studio soon to record new songs.
