Press Release

Tubular Bells, one of the iconic musical works of the 20th century, and the highest selling instrumental album of all time, is approaching its 50th anniversary. To mark this, an epic new stage production has been commissioned that re-invents the album with an incredible cinematic score, live musicians and performers.

Filmed at the world-famous Royal Festival Hall over three magical nights, this is an astonishing concert that will live long in the memory. This all-new masterpiece incorporates the beauty of the original music with modern dance, performance and acrobatic feats that create not only a visual spectacular but also a musical tour-de-force. The show also includes performances of Moonlight Shadow, Mike Oldfield’s biggest single hit, along with Summit Day, from his Guitars album, and The Gem, a new work by Musical Director Robin Smith.

Tubular Bells was originally placed on sale in May 1973, as the very first album released by Virgin Records. Initially, it was a slow burner, but once its opening theme was featured on the notorious The Exorcist soundtrack, its sales, and its reputation, soared.

Adam Sergeant, from Kaleidoscope Entertainment, said “We’re really excited to be bringing this musical masterpiece to cinemas across the UK. With more than 18 million albums sold to date, to have the opportunity to experience this very special album live on stage, alongside an astonishing contemporary dance and acrobatic performance, will be a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans of Mike Oldfield, and his iconic works.”

The Tubular Bells 50th Anniversary Tour – Concert & Live Contemporary Show, will be screening across the UK in cinemas, for one night only, on Thursday 22nd September. Here's the trailer:
