Shortwalk Presents Mike Oldfield's

Tubular Bells ‘for Two’

Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 15 August 2014

Arranged and Performed by Aidan Roberts and Daniel Holdsworth

Herald Angel Award Winner 2012

Following an International sell-out tour, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival smash-hit Tubular Bells ‘For Two’ is returning to Riverside Theatres.

Be enthralled by this live theatrical experience whereby two enormously talented Australian musicians, Daniel Holdsworth and Aidan Roberts, faithfully recreate the iconic album in real time with just two hands and two feet.

There’s pianos, organs, electric guitars, acoustic and spanish guitars, bass guitar, mandolin, tuned percussion, drums, glockenspiel, loop pedals, synthesizers, and, of course, tubular bells.

Leaping between instruments that are strewn across the stage, the show is a musical tour de force, a faithful interpretation of the album and a physical marathon!
