If you blink, you’ll miss it. The Cranberries are back after a long seven year absent. The group was one of the most successful rock acts of the ’90s and sold over 14.5 million albums in the United States alone. On this new york city show at the Nokia Theater Dolores and the boys played for an hour and a half of mostly hits, a couple of dolores’ solo songs plus a brand new, very haunting ballad that will appear on the next record. the energy of this show was high. the fans were waiting patiently for this grand moment. Sometimes great bands once they achieved a certain level of successs need some time away. this period of innactivity will re-energized the band and the fans for that “reunion” tour that everybody waits for. this was evident in the energy of the cranberries show. Dolores was like a cage tiger, “roaming” the stage side to side to everybody’s approval and pleasure. the boys, brothers Noel and Mike Hogan (guitar and bass) and drummer Fergal Lawler along with touring member Denny DeMarchi (Keyboards,vocals and guitars) provided a strong musicianship to backed Dolores’ amazing voice. it’s been 13 years since i last saw the cranberries on stage so i was very happy that this tour saw the light of day.
