About Tubular Bells Live in Concert – 50th Anniversary Experience

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Tubular Bells, the iconic masterpiece will be performed live with a full band at New Theatre Oxford next Spring, conducted and arranged by Oldfield’s long-term collaborator Robin Smith.

Tubular Bells was the debut studio album by English multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter Mike Oldfield, conceived in 1971 and finally released in 1973.


Tubular Bells Live in Concert - The 50th Anniversary Experience

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 horror film – The Exorcist – and went on to become the highest-selling instrumental album of all time.

A bold and progressive fusion, Tubular Bells is a journey through classical, jazz, folk, prog rock and electronica.
