Hundreds of fans pay tribute to The Cranberries vocalist in Russia

Many tributes were made to the singer Dolores O’Riordan after her death.

The late lead singer of The Cranberries left us too early, at the age of 46, and many people shared messages about her.

Now a video that shows hundreds of musicians who have organized themselves outdoors in St. Petersburg, Russia, to play one of the band’s greatest classics, the iconic song “Zombie.”

Take a look:

The track was first released in 1994 as a single. The song was written by Dolores O’Riordan and is a lament to the conflicts involving the Protestant issue in Northern Ireland. The riff of the song is quite heavy compared to other singles in the band. It ranks first in the charts in some countries such as Australia, Belgium, Denmark and Germany.

The song takes the unassailable position that killing young children is tragic, but in venturing into the political issues, it created a great deal of controversy. This didn’t surprise O’Riordan. “I knew that would be the angle of the song, because it was controversial,” she told us. “But, I suppose I was kind of taken aback with the success of the song. I didn’t know it was going to be that successful.”
