Stunning World Service UK Tour Kicks Off In Portsmouth
Last modified: 06 Oct 2004
The eagerly awaited 'World Service UK Tour 2004' kicked off in Portsmouth last night (5th October) to a sell-out crowd at the city's Guildhall. The first night of the three-week tour exploded into life with some of the most spectacular visual effects and lighting ever seen at a Delirious? concert. The band put on a superb mix of old and new, featuring all 12 tracks from the World Service album, plus several old favourites.
US rock band 'The Rock and Roll Worship Circus' opened the show and proved to be the perfect warm up act, leaving Delirious? to be greeted on stage with a deafening roar from the crowd. An acoustic set in the middle of the concert saw the band showing a more intimate setting for songs such as 'Bicycle Gasoline' and 'All The Way'. A medley of older songs featured 'Louder Than The Radio', 'Revival Town', 'Deeper' and 'King Of Fools', whilst new tracks such as 'Free', 'Feel It Comin On' and 'I Was Blind' included brand new videos.
The 14-date tour continues tonight (6th October) in Reading, before moving on to Maidstone, Cambridge, Bristol, London, Wolverhampton, Exeter, Liverpool, Bradford, Milton Keynes, Dunfermline, ending in Belfast on 23rd October. Several dates including Maidstone and Dunfermline have already sold-out, with other venues also near to capacity. Tickets can be bought, while they are still available, from SeeTickets
