Tubular Bells 50th Anniversary Concert heads to Newcastle in August

Following a sold-out tour across the UK & Europe, the Tubular Bells 50th Anniversary Concert will take its way to Newcastle in August.

The live performance will be orchestrated by Mike Oldfield’s longtime collaborator and arranger, Robin A Smith.

Originally conceived in 1971 by the then-17-year-old Mike Oldfield, Tubular Bells became a global phenomenon.

“The show was premiered at the Royal Festival Hall in London in August 2021 to great acclaim as an early celebration of and tribute to Mike – who in my view is one of England’s greatest composers in the last century,” Robin said.

The show will feature a performance of Tubular Bells in its entirety followed by a selection of other iconic Oldfield compositions.

Tubular Bells in Concert will hit the stage at the Civic Theatre Newcastle on August 8, 2024. Tickets are on sale from Wednesday, 24 April 24th visit for more information.
