5813281Tubular Bells For Two
DateTuesday 30th April 2019
DescriptionOne album, two men, too many instruments! The multi-award winning hit show Tubular Bells For Two returns to the UK for a 13-date tour in April/May 2019, including a concert at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Hall on London's Southbank on Wednesday 1st May. Two highly talented musicians, Daniel Holdsworth and Tom Bamford, battle with a stageful of instruments to reproduce Mike Oldfield's classic Tubular Bells album live. One slip, and it could all go horribly wrong! Like all the best ideas, Tubular Bells For Two started with a simple concept. Daniel and his friend Aidan Roberts were chilling out at home in the Blue Mountains of Australia one Friday night, listening to music over a bottle of wine, when they started to wonder how far Mike Oldfield's groundbreaking multi-tracked album Tubular Bells could be reproduced live. A one-off fun show for friends with minimal instrumentation proved so popular that they decided to do it again, more and more instruments were added over time, and Tubular Bells For Two was born! Tubular Bells For Two made its UK debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2012, where it wowed critics and audience alike, winning 5-star reviews and much-coveted Herald Angel and 'Sixth Star' Bobby awards, and has sold out many British concert venues on subsequent tours since. Tom Bamford replaced Aidan in 2017, but the concept remains the same: the barefoot duo dash around the stage, performing a multitude of instruments live in an intricately choreographed, thrilling piece of theatre. For the audience, the fun lies in not only hearing the music of a classic album beautifully played, but also in the tension of knowing that the slightest mistake could bring the whole show crashing to a halt! Opening act (except first four shows) will be GypsyFingers, featuring Luke and Victoria Oldfield - and yes, Luke was introduced to the show by his father, who has given it his seal of approval! "The musical equivalent to the triathlon.
