A revolutionary, unique band like Delirious? with a career of almost two decades simply had to wrap up their amazing journey with a history making mountain-peak show like this one! Only a few Christian acts can claim to have travelled the globe, setting a new standard of worship altogether, while touching several generations and inspiring them to a deeper, more radical and authentic walk with God. Today you can find people in their teens and 20s up to their 50s who have been touched by their work. With this double CD you'll get the treat of reliving many of the great hits of Delirious? like "History Maker", "Obsession", "Majesty" (and lots more, 21 of their best songs in total), performed live in London (November 2009 in the HMV Hammersmith Apollo theatre), together with an audience of 5,000 fans. This truly is a one-of-a-kind performance that you wouldn't want to miss out on, even though your CD shelf at home may be already jam-packed with Delirious? albums. 24 hours after the show frontman Martin Smith stated: "What can I say? It was awesome, sad, happy, and definitive. One can never correctly adjudicate one's emotions at times like this but I feel at peace. I feel joy. I feel like I've completed an assignment." The success in this assignment's completion is now evident for all to hear.
