Last modified: 05 Mar 2010
Further details about the forthcoming live album from Delirious? have now been confirmed. The 'Farewell Show' album, available on CD, DVD and Blu-Ray, was recorded live at the final ever Delirious? concert and will be released on 19th April. The double-CD album is over 100 minutes long, featuring 21 tracks. The DVD contains an 85 minute Delirious? performance plus a 34 minute Cutting Edge show. A 25 minute documentary, titled 'On The Road - The Farewell Tour', is also included on the DVD.
The Blu-Ray version contains the same content as the DVD but with the addition of a 54 minute interview, titled 'Making History - The Final Interview', providing nearly 200 minutes worth of content in total.
Describing the memorable night of the concert, the band's press release says, "And so the night became the ultimate Delirious? gig. It started - just as the band themselves began - with the Cutting Edge Band. On came Tim, Stu G, Martin, Paul and Jon, dressed down but ready to lift the abandonment up high. All those songs that they taught us in school halls and leisure centers were there: I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever, Thank You For Saving Me, Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble?, and - by popular demand - The Happy Song. It was like old times again; the band on stage simply adding a little extra noise and rhythm as the crowd surged upward with their worship.
Then, after the interval, the evening changed. Out came Delirious? - with all their lights and their suits and their ability to plug the crowd right into the mains. The screens fired up, the epic anthems unloaded and the whole venue found itself whipped up into a Rain Down/Historymaking/Town-painting/Deeper-Going/Majesty-singing frenzy. And when it came time for the intergalactic glory of Investigate, one drummer was simply not enough, and out came Stew Smith, joining Evans for an 8-minute adventure that will last a lifetime.
"Fabula est vestri" said Martin Smith on the night. "The story is yours." He's right. After nearly two decades of giving the church fresh words and tunes to sing, the time is now right for Delirious? to step back and allow the next generation of stories to come through. It's time, like the song says, to raise the flag again."
