Delirious


Well today went by pretty fast. We did school work then cleaned the house. I put Emma down for a nap and finished watching Sense and Sensibility. I cried at the end and I know how it ends. I felt so stupid but for some odd reason it was so romantic. Then I got on the computer to check emails and decided to write a blog.

So I was sitting here listening to Delirious and got really sad that they are done after 2008 is over. I have been a fan since I was 14yrs which was 11yrs ago. It really saddens me greatly. So I looked up when they would be coming to this side of the world and found out they were coming Nov 20, 21 and 22 to Houston TX. They are leading worship for a Joyce Meyers Conference at Lakwood church. So I asked James if we could go and he said we can try. So I think the plan is to drive down friday morning and drive back late saturday nite. I am so excited not only am I going to see them but they are leading worship not having a concert. Its going to be so awesome!!!! I think it would so cool if we could get a bunch a people to go that would so much fun. I think Angela is coming but I am not bringing any kids. So it will be a cool road trip. I so can't wait but something I really can't wait for is the cruise!!! 25 more days!!! Well I got to get ready for church and emma needs a bath real bad so hope you have a great nite and God bless!!!!

Here is what they wrote on their blog.

The End of an Era - press releaseJul 06 2008
We would like to address all our fans, our friends and people around the world who have faithfully supported Delirious?

After 14 albums, thousands of shows in front of millions of people, and many extraordinary memories, we have decided that at the end of 2009 we will take a break from recording and playing as a band.

Our decision was triggered by a request from Martin to be released from the band to pursue new projects including his work with CompassionArt and the desire to be at home more with Anna and his children. We have of course honoured this request and made a decision together that now is the time to end this chapter of our lives.

We will continue to play and be excited about our current tours and bookings but will not be adding many more over the coming 17 months..

We are all so deeply grateful to our incredible fans who have sung the songs and allowed Delirious? the privilege of providing the soundtrack to many lives over the years. From the school hall in Littlehampton to the stadiums of the world we have many stories to tell our children’s children. Delirious also would not be what it is without our amazing wives and families, and our gratitude to them is immense. We will now move forward to the next part of our lives where new challenges unfold and greater stories will be written.

We want to make it absolutely clear that although this decision has been extremely painful and difficult, we are still great friends and our respect for each other is unquestionable. We love playing in this band together and know that even though 2009 will bring an end to this current journey, there will be more adventures together in years to come.

We always used to say that we were ‘taking it wherever it goes’. The music ended up going further and deeper than we could ever have dreamed, yet we are now at a point where our creative futures will spread out and take on different journeys.

Thanks again for believing in us through all these years. We believe the best is yet to come.


Jon, Martin, Paul, Stu G and Tim

Admission is Free. We only have to worry about gas food and hotel.
