Bono & Johnny's emotional tribute

The stars of Irish music gave held a standing ovation in memory of Cranberries star Dolores O'Riordan at a concert in Dublin last night.

Musicians and celebrities had gathered at the Irish capital's National Concert Hall to celebrate the 60th birthday of legendary Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan.

With so many of the stars having been friends of O'Riordan - and the singer's death having been announced just hours before - many of those on stage paid tribute to her on an emotional night.

Catatonia singer Cerys Matthews dedicated her performance of The Broad Majestic Shannon to O'Riordan, drawing a standing ovation from the crowd.

Bono also sang out the word 'Linger', one of O'Riordan's most famous lyrics, after he performed A Rainy Night In Soho with filmstar Johnny Depp.

Irish folk musician Finbar Fury said of the Cranberries singer: 'She'll be missed. She'll be really missed. A true great.'

The event was attended by Irish President Michael Higgins who earlier in the day had told of his 'great sadness' at O'Riordan's death.

Mr Higgins said:'Dolores O'Riordan and The Cranberries had an immense influence on rock and pop music in Ireland and internationally.

'I recall with fondness the late Limerick TD Jim Kemmy's introduction of her and The Cranberries to me, and the pride he and so many others took in their successes.

'To all those who follow and support Irish music, Irish musicians and the performing arts, her death will be a big loss.' 

Sinead O'Connor, Imelda May and Glen Hansard all performed at the event, while Cave and MacGowan teamed up for the band's Summer In Siam.

MacGowan, who has experienced health problems in recent times, was brought on to the stage in his wheelchair where he joined Cave for the duet before embarking on a solo version of Will You Go Lassie Go.

The singer-songwriter was also presented with the National Concert Hall's lifetime achievement award by Mr Higgins. 

Scotland Yard has said the death of O'Riordan is not being treated as suspicious after she was found dead at a hotel in central London on Monday morning.

Officers were called to the hotel in Park Lane where a '46-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene'.

They added that 'the death is not being treated as suspicious' and confirmed the case has now been passed to a coroner.

O'Riordan, from Friarstown, Kilmallock, Co Limerick, was renowned for her distinctive singing voice and The Cranberries enjoyed huge success in the 1990s with tracks including Zombie and Linger.

Her The Cranberries bandmates - Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler, and Mike Hogan - said they were 'devastated' by the news, adding 'the world has lost a true artist'.
