One album, two men, too many instruments.

Two blokes juggle over 20 instruments live on stage in a spellbinding performance. A multi-award
winning sell-out hit at festivals around the world, Tubular Bells for Two is now returning home for an
Australia tour.

Ask anyone who grew up through the 70s and they will be able to tell you exactly where they were
when they first heard Tubular Bells. Composed by Mike Oldfield in 1973, the album was the first
release on Richard Branson's fledgling record label, Virgin Records. The album went on to sell over 30 million copies, kick-starting the Virgin empire.

Now, more than 40 years on, two young Australian multi-instrumentalists, Aidan Roberts and Daniel
Holdsworth, are presenting this modern masterpiece in a challenging live event. So what's the catch?
Oldfield harnessed – what was at the time – the latest in multi-track recording technology, playing a
multitude of instruments one-by-one in the studio. However, in Tubular Bells for Two there are only
two men on stage needing to perform every part live with only four hands and four feet between
them.
