The Cranberries reunite, announce Boston gig

, Staff

The Cranberries will reunite this fall for a month-long tour of North America. The Irish rockers will make their way to Boston for a show at the Orpheum Theatre on Friday, November 13. Tickets for the show, which are priced at $29.50 and $35, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. The band, who will launch their tour the night before in Baltimore, will head north to New Hampshire for a show at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Saturday, November 14.

The tour will feature the band’s original lineup for the first time in seven years with members: vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler. O’Riordan cancelled a tour that was scheduled for this fall in support of her new solo album, No Baggage. However, the band does plan on performing some of O’Riordan’s solo work along with the band’s greatest hits from their five albums.

The Cranberries are also working on a new batch of songs together for possible release on a new album, though no release date has been made.

In January, the band played a short performance at Dublin’s Trinity College, when O’Riordan was awarded as an Honorary Patron of Trinity’s Philosophical Society. The event marked the first time that all the band members had seen each other together since 2003. Though they never officially broke up (the time away was instead called an extended hiatus), the band realized how much they missed each other after performing that night in Dublin and decided that the time for a reunion was imminent.
