Arcade Fire covered the Cranberries during their Dublin show

Watch Win Butler and co cover Cranberries track ‘Linger’ at an Irish show

Arcade Fire covered Cranberries track ‘Linger’ at their Dublin show on Friday night (April 6).

The band played tribute to the Irish band, whose front woman Dolores O’Riordan passed away earlier this year, by covering their 1993 single ‘Linger’ before launching into ‘Everything Now.’

You can watch a clip of the moment below.


Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan died in January at the age of 46.

The Irish singer fronted the band from 1990 to 2003, when they went on hiatus. She was a part of their later reunion in 2009.

Arcade Fire are currently on their ‘Infinite Content’ tour in support of their 2017 album Everything Now. The Canadians are currently in their UK and Ireland leg, but have announced plans to extend the run into July in America.

The band released their fifth record last year, following a campaign that saw them promote “dress codes” at their shows, post a series of fake news stories, and claim to be selling a $109 fidget spinner.

But recently, Win Butler said he hopes ‘Everything Now‘ is Arcade Fire‘s “stinker” and that people didn’t get the intended humour in the campaign that promoted it.


Last month, the band shared their new ‘Money + Love’ double video.

The joint video combines the tracks ‘Put Your Money On Me’ and ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’, both lifted from their 2017 album ‘Everything Now’.
