The Cranberries In Shanghai

I’ve mentioned before that Michael Jackson passing away unexpectedly has made me make more of an effort to go see people while they’re still performing, which is why I was happy to have seen the Eagles concert a few months ago. Amy Winehouse’s premature passing again reinforces my view. So for those of you who are fans, Dolores O’Riordan and her band will be playing the Shanghai Grand Stage tonight and I am sure if you want to go along, you’ll find plenty of tickets to be had by the touts at the gate. I know it’s not a good idea to support the touts, but everyone else is doing is so why can’t we (sorry guys that’s the best I could do!).

    If The Cranberries were playing outside my window, I’d shut the curtains.

    Ahh yes, I have heard that if u remove the visual distraction it does indeed enhance the aural appreciation.

    @James – Very considerate of you. Nobody wants to see what you get up to when you’re home alone!

    you need to buy the tickets off a tout? Surely it’s not sold out!

    So were they any good?

    @Wiseman – I posted about 5 hours before the concert was due to start. I’m guessing the official ticketing website won’t be able to process your order that close to the start time.

    @CP – Yes, they were pretty good, yes, in the 1990s, LOL!

    Well the promoters actually secretly sell all the remained tickets to touts with large discounts later on the show day, so there should be no feeling bad from customers at all. As for the bands, they just earned much more money than you can actually think of and spend on drugs and alcohols lol shhhhhhh

    @Abby – Thanks for that insightful contribution!

    here’s a nice piece about the Beijing Show – http://www.thinkingchinese.com/index.php?page_id=337

    @George – Thanks for that. I did completely forget to mention the significance of The Cranberries in China being that Wang Fei had a massive hit with 夢中人 (Dreams, Chinese version) back in 1994. I imagine the reaction in Beijing would be bigger than Shanghai given she’s a Beijing native. I kind of wish I’d gone now.
