Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells 'For Two'

Friday 28-06-2013 19:45

APPROX RUNNING TIME: 1 hour 20 minutes (including interval)

Minimum Age Recommendation: 8

40th Anniversary Concert Tour 

When Mike Oldfield released his 1973 masterpiece, Tubular Bells, it required more than 30 musicians to perform it.   Now, 40 years on, performed by just two massively talented musicians, this thrilling show recreates the album on stage, in real time in a unique and compelling theatrical experience.

The original  1973 album shot to number one around the world, throwing its young composer into the international spotlight and kick-started Richard Branson’s Virgin empire. Now forty years later, two Australian  multi-instrumentalists race from instrument to instrument  juggling pianos, organs, guitars, mandolin, drums, glockenspiel, loop pedals, synthesizers and, of course, Tubular Bells.

Tubular Bells for Two burst onto the international scene at the Sydney Festival and was the smash-hit show of the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe - winning a Herald Angel Award and garnering several five star reviews.

Join us to witness this herculean feat as Daniel Holdsworth and Aidan Roberts  recreate the beauty and playful lunacy of one of the most important albums of the 20th Century with just four hands and four feet.

 

“Two man orchestra bring soundtrack of 70s back to life... an intensely focused race around every twist and turn of Oldfield's quirky masterwork” The Times 

óóóóó “A live music experience, a virtuoso performance from two musicians at the top of their game.” Edinburgh Evening News 

óóóóó “The musical equivalent of the triathlon – with bells on.” The Scotsman 

“A musical tour de force. Mesmerising to watch” Sydney Morning Herald 

“A two-man performance that is part musical, part acrobatic.” The Australian
