Watch Dolores O’Riordan’s ‘Linger’ Duet With Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon

Dolores O'Riordan and Simon Le Bon performed the Cranberries hit at a 1995 charity concert in Italy.

Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon has paid his respects to Dolores O’Riordan and reminded us of the time he performed with the late Irish singer and a full orchestra on the Cranberries’ classic, “Linger.” 

“Beloved Dolores,” wrote Le Bon in a message posted on Duran Duran’s social media accounts. “it’s so sad that you’ve gone from us. We never said goodbye, but you left us with your songs, your beautiful voice and when we listen, we’ll remember all those good times.”


The British singer’s tribute accompanies a video of their duet for Luciano Pavarotti’s 1995 charity concert, Together for the Children of Bosnia. The event, held in Pavarotti’s hometown of Modena, Italy, was taped for a DVD and album release with proceeds going to War Child’s projects.  

O’Riordan was found dead Monday morning (Jan. 15) at a London hotel, aged 46. Her death is not being treated as suspicious, British police say.
