Arcade Fire cover The Cranberries’ ‘Linger’

Arcade Fire took to the Dublin stage and paid tribute to one of the country’s greatest talents Dolores O’Riordan who sadly passed away earlier in the year. The band were on tour in the Irish city and felt it correct to pay homage to such a wonderful talent and cover one of the band’s most well-known tracks, 1993’s ‘Linger’.

Covering the Cranberries’ in Ireland is always a risky prospect but considering the circumstances most people are getting a free pass. However Win Butler and co really did the song justice before moving in to the lead track of their recent release Everything Now

The emotional tribute comes amid a deep sadness for the loss of such an incredible talent and confusion as to how and why this could happen. But as Arcade Fire covered this truly emotive and moving track we come to the conclusion that she will live on forever.

Take a look at the fan footage below.
