The Cranberries are back in Manila for “Greatest Hits” Concert!

THE CRANBERRIES ARE BACK in Manila for their much-awaited “The Greatest Hits Concert” on April 10th at the Araneta Coliseum. The Irish rock band, one of the world’s biggest rock acts in the 1990s, first staged a concert in the Philippines in 1996. They attained a worldwide fan base after releasing their hit songs, which are now rock and roll classics: “Linger”, “Zombie”, “Ode To My Family”, “Animal Instinct”, “Ridiculous Thoughts”, and a lot more.

Stephanie Uy, President of Karpos Multimedia Inc., the producer of the said concert, shares that they are very excited to bring The Cranberries here in the Philippines.

“The Cranberries are going to tour starting March until July, and we’re very lucky because Philippines is the only country that they’ll visit in Asia. We can’t wait to have them here,” she says.

“So if you love rock and you miss the music of the 90’s, this is an event you shouldn’t pass up,” Uy adds. Pinoy band Franco will showcase their own brand of rock and roll as the front act for The Cranberries.

Best-selling band

The group—composed of vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, guitarists Noel Hogan and Mike Hogan, as well as drummer Fergal Lawler—was one of the biggest rock bands in the 1990s. Aside from selling more than 15 million albums worldwide, the band has likewise produced four records that were included in the Billboard 200 chart. These are “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?”, “No Need to Argue”, “To the Faithful Departed”, and “Bury the Hatchet’.

The Cranberries started touring in Ireland and the UK in 1992; They had their North American and European Tour a few years later. They included Manila on their "To the Faithful Departed" tour in 1996. The success of their concerts paved way to a world tour in 1999.

In early 2000, however, the group went on a hiatus and its members concentrated on their own solo projects. O'Riordan launched a couple of solo albums titled “Are You Listening?” (2007) and “No Baggage” (2009), while the rest of The Cranberries became active in their other bands and music projects.

Reunion and new album

The Cranberries reunited for a successful North American and European tour in 2009. They also recorded their sixth album, “Roses”, which will be officially released worldwide on February 27th.

In an interview with, O'Riordan shared that making the newest record was a great experience for every member of the band. “It really came together really nicely. A lot of the tracks were written without really thinking about it. They just came. I suppose we had more respect for each other and what we were doing.”

The track list for “Roses” includes: "Conduct", "Tomorrow", "Fire & Soul", "Raining In My Heart", "Losing My Mind", "Schizophrenic Playboys", "Waiting In Walthamstow", "Show Me", "Astral Projections", "So Good", and "Roses".
