DOLORES ‘LINGER’S OVER US PROBLEM

Dolores O'Riordan says she "won't be in a hurry" to visit the US at the moment, even though the band have a new album to promote...

THE CRANBERRIES frontwoman DOLORES O’RIORDAN has revealed that she fears touring the US following the terrorist attacks on the country.

The Cranberries are a huge draw in the US, a country where they have sold the majority of their 33 million albums. However, O’Riordan now says she feels it would be too dangerous to visit to support new album ‘Wake Up And Smell The Coffee’.

Speaking to The Mirror newspaper today (October 26), O’Riordan says she watched CNN footage of the second ‘plane smashing into the World Trade Center. She added: “It was so shocking because I guess no one ever thought someone would do this to America. I wouldn’t be in a hurry to go over there now. It’s way too dangerous at the moment.”
