Live in Paris Press Release

We finally have official word about the release of the Live in Paris video, to be released next spring. This press release was given from the company who got the exclusive right to publish it.

"IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT TO HANDLE WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION OF BRAND NEW CONCERT FILM "THE CRANBERRIES: LIVE IN PARIS"

Home Video and Broadcast Rights Granted in Exclusive Agreement with Island Records, Inc.

CHATSWORTH, CA (December 21, 1999) - Image Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: DISK), a leading licensee and distributor of DVD programming in North America, today announced the signing of an exclusive agreement with Island Records, Inc. that grants Image all facets of home video and broadcast distribution, worldwide, for The Cranberries: Live In Paris, filmed December 9th at the Palais Omnisport de Paris Bercy in Paris.

The Cranberries, the internationally known rock quartet hailing from Limerick, Ireland, was formed in 1989 and their first single, "Uncertain", was released by Island Records in 1991. The band's first album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? was released in March 1993 and has sold over five million copies, spawning two hit singles: "Linger" and "Dreams". From there, The Cranberries went on to release No Need To Argue and To the Faithful Departed, each album more successful than the last, and winning international awards and recognition, including the MTV Award for European Single of the Year for "Zombie".

The band took a three-year break from touring and recording in 1996. They are now back with a bestselling album, Bury the Hatchet, which topped the charts around the world. They are also in the midst of an internationally acclaimed world tour of 46 cities, including London, New York, Paris and Milan. To date the band has sold over 31 million albums. This is their first concert, since 1994, to be released to home video, and marks The Cranberries' first DVD release.
The Paris concert will be released on DVD, videocassette and for broadcast in the Spring of 2000. The DVD will feature Dolby Digital and DTS multichannel audio. The video was produced by Ned O'Hanlon for Dreamchaser Productions, audio was produced by the band and the program was directed by Maurice Linnan.

New Tour Dates Considered

According to a recent interview with Fergal after one of the recent UK gigs, the Cranberries are considering booking new tour dates for France for June of 2000. Nothing is official right now, but because of the large crowds of the recent French shows, I would say rebooking that area would be a good move on the band's part.

New Album Confirmed

As stated by Dolores recently on French radio, the band is going back to the studios again early next year to recrod Album #5. Here is news from the official page to confirm that:

"Dec 06th 1999

(written Dec 4th and 5th)

Hi, how's it going ?

I'm still alive. I haven't been writing too much recently as I've been concentrating on the tour, so apologies to anyone who has been waiting.

We are in Madrid and I think I've eaten too much "Paella", I'm feeling a little bloated but there are two hours to go before the gig so, it should be digested by then.

All the shows so far have been great, thank you all for coming. We have been playing a mixture of songs from all four albums and the reaction to the new stuff has been fantastic, it still amazes me how fast people can learn the lyrics.

It's been great flying home every few days, (the joy of waking up in your own bed is a thing you do not take for granted when you have toured for a long time!) I thought it would feel a little strange because I wasn't on the bus, but I've had a few days where I stayed out here (in Spain) for a bit of a party which is always good for bonding!

We were discussing our plans for next year today and I can tell you that we hope to start recording some new material in May and we will definitely be doing Summer festivals around Europe and the Womad festival in South Africa. We are also trying to organize to go to South America but that has not been confirmed yet.

Woo-hoo! Great news today! . In Belfast both sides sat down together around the table so hopefully they will be able to work things out and we will finally have peace in our beautiful country.

It's now Dec 5th and we are in Barcelona . A few of us went out around the town for a while then we went to eat at the "Hard Rock Cafe" and did a little tour of the bars until 4.30am. But surprisingly I felt great this morning, there is something magic about this city. It is without doubt my favourite!! O.K. it's time for me to start my stretching etc. before the gig so talk to you later.

DONT FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE LIVE WEBCAST ON THURSDAY 9th DECEMBER. Read message below for instructions!

Take care,

Fergal."


New Bootleg

Yet another new bootleg has surfaced from the current tour. This one is titled "Live in Barcelona, December 5th, 1999". Bet you can't guess where it was recorded! I'm not sure of the tracks, but scans are below:











Fourth BTH Single!

It's now about as official as it gets. This Thrusday, the Cranberries did their last show in the France area. The show was broadcasted over the internet, and was recorded for future release. However, the biggest surprise, is when after the encore, the Cranberries came back out to play one more song -- again. Dolores roused up the crowd to a loud cheer to the effect that they are still in the middle of the show, and replayed "You and Me". The announced that they would be releasing this as the music video. As you may recall, they've done this before. For the first album, they made a "Dreams" live video, which was taken directly from the first live home video. However, according to those that attended the show, not all of the concert was recorded. If you've been to one of the recent concerts, you'll know that they now have some large screens to show close-ups for the unfortunate in the back. Anyhow, according to the sources, Dolores announced that only a few songs would be recorded, and that when they were, these screens went blue. If so, only "Salvation", "Zombie", and another song were recorded. So does this mean that the upcoming video won't have the entire show? Or will it be a compilation-type video of different live shows? Or will there even be a live video at all?!


Dolores in New Benefit Video

Dolores makes a VERY brief appearence in a new benefit video for children. The music video consists of dozens of artists doing about 2-second clips of the song "It's Only Rock and Roll, But I Like It", originally recorded by the Rolling Stones.



New Video and DVD!

According to Mercury Records (the division of Universal in Germany), the upcoming Paris concert, the last concert in the area, will be broadcasted over the Internet by the official page. Not only that, but the concert will be recorded and released on VHS and DVD early next year! This is great news to hear that the old Live video (now out of print) will finally get a new addition.


New Single!

Ok, so it isn't from "Bury the Hatchet", but there's a new single coming out from the Berries! According to Mercury Records, the "Ave Maria" duet with Dolores and Pavoratti will officially be made a single. In case you haven't heard of it, Dolores did a benefit concert back in 1995 with called "Pavoratti and Friends for the Children of Bosnia". The concert was recorded and released on VHS and CD under that title. Also, if you attended any Cranberries concerts this year, and heard a Cranberries song playing at the end, this was that song. I don't have tracks or dates right now, but when I more info, I'll let you know!



BTH "Russian" Edition

Sometimes you have to laugh at a bootleg because they don't get the songs right. But this is beyond pathetic...



Need I say more? And once you're done laughing, you can look at the back of this "import".



Piracy looks more legit every day, doesn't it?
