“Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’ 50th Anniversary Tour Comes to Tallinn”

 

Celebrated English composer Mike Oldfield’s iconic “Tubular Bells” album turns 50 years this year. To mark the anniversary, there is a global tour. The next stop of which will be in Tallinn this evening, March 11.

At the age of 17, Mike Oldfield composed “Tubular Bells”, the best-selling instrumental album of all time. The opening track of which featured on the soundtrack of the legendary horror film “The Exorcist”.

Under the direction of Oldfield’s longtime collaborator Robin A Smith, an impressive ensemble will perform tracks from “Tubular Bells”, as well as other timeless hits such as “Moonlight Shadow”, “Summit Day”, “Family Man” and “Ommadawn”.

“Along with the musicians, it’s a real privilege to be performing this extraordinary work. It’s as fresh today as it was when Mike created it in 1971 – and I love having the chance to bring it to new audiences as well as those who, like me, are still captivated by it whenever they hear it,” shared Smith.
