The Cranberries are touring Europe in May and June, performing their greatest hits acoustically with a string quartet.
The band – vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan, and drummer Fergal Lawler – bring the show to London Palladium on 20 May.
Tickets go on sale on 10 February.
Formed in Limerick City, Ireland, in 1989 the band rose to global fame with the release of their debut album ‘Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?’. Featuring the hits ‘Linger’ and ‘Dreams’, it went on to sell over 5 million copies in the United States alone, and topped the charts in other territories like the UK.
The band followed up their breakout success with three further albums that hit the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart – ‘No Need to Argue’, ‘To the Faithful Departed’, and ‘Bury the Hatchet’. Subsequent LPs ‘Wake Up and Smell The Coffee’ and ‘Roses’ have helped keep the Cranberries name alive well into the 21st century – as has touring.
In early 2010, after a six-year hiatus, the band played dates across North and South America as well as Europe. In 2012, they hit the road again, performing in China, Japan, The Philippines, Australia, and New Zealand as well as Europe and the US. And just last year they played a series of sold-out shows in Poland, France, and Switzerland.
