Dolores O’Riordan tragically passed away today at the age of 46, and in 2017 her band Cranberries were forced to cancel several shows due to her health issues.
An acoustic Cranberries album titled Something Else was released on April 28, 2017 through BMG. Something Else featured orchestral arrangements of prior releases, and three new songs.
With the release of the new album, the group announced a tour which was to include dates in Europe, parts of the UK, and North America. The shows were scheduled in smaller venues, with live orchestral accompaniment. However, in May 2017, shortly into the European tour, The Cranberries had to cancel the remainder of the European dates as O’Riordan had health issues. The North American tour dates were cancelled in July when her recovery had not progressed enough for her to participate.
Below are videos from Dolores’ final Cranberries show on May 20, 2017 at the London Palladium.
