Band Carries The Mission Bell Worldwide, Tour Stop Includes Germany's Olympic Stadium
Globally relevant band Delirious? hits US soil March 23 in Fresno (Clovis, CA) for the first leg of its 23-city Stateside tour that features songs from its current and world-acclaimed album, The Mission Bell. The UK-based Delirious? travels through the country hitting such major markets at New York City, Los Angeles (Irvine, CA), Chicago (Barrington, IL), Philadelphia, San Francisco, Orlando and more.
At venues throughout the world, Delirious? is bringing its message directly to the Church through The Mission Bell, delivering a call of action to all believers. There is a sense of urgency, a challenge to the Church to quit talking about what it believes and to take action with all it's been given.
In a recent stop in Norwich, England, Delirious? had the opportunity to ring its mission bell following a fire that destroyed the venue the band was set to play. Not thwarted, the band found a new venue and the message was carried.
"Fire may have burnt down the original church venue for this concert, but nobody is ever going to put out the fire of the passion of God in people's lives," said Delirious? front man Martin Smith.
"From the moment Delirious? walked onto stage there was an air of expectancy in the house; young people feeling free to express God in their own unique way," says event host Jon Norman. "At the end of an incredible set, I gave the appeal for people to find God. Over 100 hands were raised. A new fire has started in Norwich, a fire which can never be put out!"
Delirious?'s worldwide mission also includes a stop July 15 to headline the Calling All Nations event in the heart of Europe, worshipping with tens of thousands at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany. For more information on this event, visit www.callingallnations.com
