What is Delirious? Its a mystery! - some say pop, some say stadium only, others say 'feel-good' Radiohead ... but the general vibe is BRILLIANT.
It seems there is nothing these British boys can do wrong. After storming Australian music sales with 'King of Fools' and new release 'Mezzamorphis' Delirious? Are heading to Queensland for what is set to be a sell-out concert.
British band Delirious? have been treating fans around the world with luxuriously sweaty gigs. With visuals that re-fuel the songs mid-flight and crowd-created atmospheres of pure delight, the band twist, thrash and blow-torch their way through material that beds down deep inside. Wide-eyed are the stares from the crowds, with big smiles coming back from the stage - not that they've been trained that way, more that playing live is what Delirious? love best ... and they show it!
Delirious ? have had two top 20 singles and their last album entered the charts at number5 13. They're British yet they've sold 500, 000 records in the States. They've sold out Brixton Academy and Glasgow Barrowlands, so why haven't you heard of them? - Rock sound 'Rising Stars' May 99.
Triple J unearthed winners Rhubarb are billed as main support act for the Delirious? Concert. Rhubarb, who released their debut album this year have seen their song "Excerciser" climb to the number ONE spot on the net 50 - Triple J. Gold Coast band Alabaster Box will also support Delirious? along with guitar virtuoso Adam Lester.
