UK Leg Of The Mission Bell Tour Comes To An End
Last modified: 02 Nov 2006
The UK leg of Delirious' 'Mission Bell European Tour' came to an end last night (1st November) to a sell-out crowd at the Reading Hexagon. The band have performed 13 concerts around the UK over the past three weeks, many of which were to capacity crowds. The tour saw the band playing the majority of the songs on latest album 'The Mission Bell', plus a few older tracks like Metamorphis and an entertaining keyboard rendition of Happy Song.
During the tour a large video screen on stage showed superb visuals to songs such as 'Paint The Town Red' and 'History Maker', as well as projecting images of the band from several miniature cameras positioned around the stage. At the Cambridge date pop star Daniel Bedingfield made a surprise appearance on stage with Delirious? to duet on 'What A Friend I've Found'. Delirious? donned matching white suits for the tour, each individually tailored with a unique feature.
Support for the tour came from Tim Hughes for the majority of the shows, and Reuben Morgan for the final two nights. Delirious? will now continue the tour with 13 further dates in mainland Europe, starting tomorrow night (3rd November) in Copenhagen, Denmark. They then travel to Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and Austria, before ending the tour with a concert in the French capital, Paris, on 19th November.
