The Cranberries cancel Brick show, Dolores O'Riordan is ill
Irish rock group the Cranberries pulled out of their show at the Brick Thursday evening in Minneapolis only a few minutes before they were scheduled to perform.
The cancellation comes because lead singer Dolores O'Riordan has reportedly fallen ill. No further word on her condition, or any additional postponed dates have been posted at this time.
According to the Brick's Facebook page, the cancellation was announced not long after opening band Vintage Trouble played their set:
We're very sorry to say that due to unforeseen circumstances Dolores from The Cranberries is unable to perform tonight. We will be offering refunds beginning Monday, May 21 from point of purchase. On behalf of the band and everyone at The Brick, we apologize for this unfortunate situation.
As mentioned, this means that the Brick is offering up refunds for this show starting on Monday.
The Cranberries have not announced a makeup date at this time, but we will update this posting when we have more information.
