August Festivals Give Delirious? A Busy Summer
Last modified: 06 Aug 2004
Delirious? continued their summer of festival appearances this week, with three UK festivals in three days. On Tuesday (3rd August) they performed at the 'New Wine' event in Shepton Mallet, Somerset. Their appearance marked the 10th anniversary of the first time the band played at the event back in 1994.
It is also an event that holds special memories for Martin Smith, as he explained on the band's website: "I wrote my first ever worship song 'Lord you have my heart' at New Wine '89 after being in one of the meetings"
. Delirious? then travelled North to perform at the 'Audacious' event held at Keele University. Rounding off the first leg of their summer gigs, Delirious? performed at the Alexandra Palace in London last night (5th August) as part of the 'Soul In The City' event.
The band will now go on holiday for a week, breaking off for a brief trip to Athens on 14th August to perform at a gig entertaining people who are visiting the city for the Olympic Games. On their return they resume their summer holidays before making further festival appearances in the UK at Greenbelt (28th August) and Grapevine (29th August).
