Irlantilainen rock-suosikki The Cranberries joutuu perumaan Euroopan kesäkiertueensa.
Yhtyeen laulaja Dolores O’Riordan kärsii selkäongelmista ja lääkärien ohjeiden mukaan kiertue jää väliin.
Kaikki bändin keikat elokuun loppuun asti peruuntuvat.
Syyskuun 11. päivä käynnistyvä Pohjois-Amerikan kiertue on edelleen ohjelmassa.
Bändin tuorein Something Else -niminen albumi ilmestyi toukokuun lopulla.
***** The Cranberries – Statement ***** Most regrettably, Dolores O’Riordan has been instructed by her doctors to not resume touring as planned to help facilitate a full recovery to an ongoing back problem that she is currently receiving treatment for. The Cranberries commented “It is with a heavy heart that we have had to pull these shows. Dolores is making good progress however we understandably don’t want to jeopardise a full recovery. We have really been thrilled to be back on the road and sharing our music with everyone, and so look forward to seeing everyone as soon as possible”.
