Two ambitious musicians play over twenty instruments to bring Mike Oldfield’s classic hit Tubular Bells to life in a unique theatrical performance.
Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells is perhaps the most unlikely smash hit record ever to be released.
The beautiful and sprawling progressive Celtic-folk-rock opus shot to number one in album charts around the world in 1973 and 1974, throwing its young composer into the international spotlight and kick-starting Richard Branson’s Virgin music empire.
Now, more than 40 years later, multi-instrumentalists Daniel Holdsworth and Aidan Roberts have arranged the entire score of Tubular Bells to be played out by just two blokes, bringing the influential masterpiece to life with all of its multi-layered madness and subtle beauty intact.
