After a 16 year absence, Irish rock band The Cranberries found themselves back on Philippine soil for the Manila stop of the Roses tour. The Cranberries performed for an almost-full house on Tuesday evening with 90-minute set full of memories.
Karpos Multimedia and Midas Promotions worked together to bring in the popular 90′s band famous for such hits as “Linger”, “Promises”, “Dreams”, and the crowd favorite,”Zombie”
An estimated crowd of ten thousand flocked to the Smart Araneta Coliseum on April 10th, eager to relive the decade of cassette tapes, pixie cut hairstyles and hanging t-shirts.
In a bold yet refreshing move, The Cranberries opted not to have a front act, proving that they are indeed a group that needs no introduction. As the group went onstage one by one, the cheers grew to a roar that filled the Big Dome with the crowd’s energy.
The band began their set with the 1992 hit, “Dreams”, easing into another chart topping hit, “Linger”. In between songs, frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan shared that it was the birthday of her youngest daughter, soon answered by the fans with screams of birthday wishes for her 7-year-old.
