Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells Live In Concert


Sun 6 Oct 2024, 19:30

Continuing on from last years 50th anniversary celebrations of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells, it has been announced the multi-million-selling and multi-award-winning album will be performed live in concert across the UK this Autumn on a 29 date tour. 
Tubular Bells is world-renowned as one of the most celebrated examples of music in film for its soundtracking of horror classic The Exorcist. Its legacy was cemented with Oldfield’s performance of the album’s main theme at the iconic London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, one of the rare performances of the project he has given. 

The Tubular Bells UK Autumn tour will feature an expansive live group, conducted and arranged by Oldfield’s long-term collaborator Robin Smith, which will see the iconic Tubular Bells performed in full, as well as other works by Mike Oldfield including Moonlight Shadow, Summit Day, Family Man and Ommadawn. 

‘A magnificent performance of a piece that's now part of the fabric of popular culture. And when you think Mike Oldfield was just 17 when he began writing it, and was 19 when the album was released, it's nothing short of a work of genius.’
