Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells Live in Concert

Start date: 3 Aug 2024 / End date: 3 Aug 2024

49 Market St, Sydney 2000

Ph: 0398197324



Following its successful sold-out 50th Anniversary run in the UK and Europe, Tubular Bells in Concert heads to Australia.

The Gold Anniversary of Mike Oldfield’s trailblazing magnum-opus will be performed by an expansive live group, featuring and arranged by Mike Oldfield’s long-term collaborator, Robin A Smith.

The concert will see Tubular Bells performed in full, with further Oldfield compositions, including “Moonlight Shadow”, “To France”, “Family Man” and excerpts from “Ommadawn”.

Tubular Bells was the debut studio album by English multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter Mike Oldfield conceived in 1971 and finally released in 1973. Oldfield, who was just 17 years old when he started composing the music, recorded and played almost all of the instruments on the album. It gained worldwide acclaim when the opening theme was used for the soundtrack of The Exorcist, and the album went on to become the highest-selling instrumental album of all time.

Robin A Smith has worked with Mike Oldfield for over 25 years, collaborating on Tubular Bells two and three including live performances at Edinburgh Castle, Horseguards Parade in London, The Millennium Bell in Berlin, and the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Mike Oldfield will not appear at these performances.
