Palace Resorts’ signature Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun has reacted to popular demand by bolstering its August entertainment lineup with a third concert by the Irish rock band, The Cranberries.

We look forward to announcing additional performers and entertainment offerings throughout 2016.”
