The Cranberries in Warsaw

The Cranberries, the hugely popular Irish band fronted by charismatic vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, will play in Warsaw June 26. The concert, which promises to be one of the biggest music events of the year, will take place at the Torwar Arena and feature a string of the band’s greatest hits along with tracks from their much-anticipated new album entitled Roses.

The Cranberries were formed in 1989 in Limerick, Ireland, as Cranberry Saw Us with Niall Quinn as the frontman. O’Riordan took his place when she joined the band two years later after Quinn left. The Cranberries’ first album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, was released in 1993 with the hits “Linger” and “Dreams” on it. The turning point in the band’s career was their follow-up album No Need To Argue (1994), which spawned their greatest hit to date, “Zombie.” The Cranberries released three more albums: To the Faithful Departed (1996), Bury the Hatchet (1998) and Wake Up and Smell the Coffee (2002).

To date, the band have sold over 30 million albums and four of their albums entered the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 chart. They also had eight top 20 singles on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. Playing concerts for millions of fans, they even played for John Paul II several times and their pictures have been printed on the covers of the world’s most popular music magazines, including Rolling Stone and SPIN.

In 2002, The Cranberries took a 10-year break and now they are back with 11 new tracks on their sixth studio album, Roses, backed with a world tour. The Warsaw date will be their first concert in Poland in a decade.

The Cranberries today are O’Riordan (vocals), Noel Hogan (guitar), his brother Mike (bass), and Fergal Lawler (drums).

The new chapter in the band’s history started right after they finished a successful and sold out tour in 2010. During rehearsals and on the road, the musicians shared ideas and composed new songs which drew on their distinctive sound from the past. The get-togethers led to the Roses album, which looks back at the fresh and original sound of The Cranberries from the first two albums. Each track on Roses features O’Riordan’s amazing vocals, the “signature instrument” of The Cranberries which in just several years transformed the band from the group of young Irish hopefuls they had been back in the 1980s to a global phenomenon.

The Cranberries are confident their latest offering can both please old fans and win them many new ones. Polish audiences will find out if this is indeed the case this June at the band’s one-night-only concert in Poland.

The Cranberries, June 26, 7 p.m.
Torwar Arena, 6a Łazienkowska St.
