The independent music label Pandora Music is organizing the Second Mike Oldfield Fan Meeting in Madrid which will take place the 23rd of February. The event will include video sessions, stalls with fanzines (the Orabidoo fanzine staff will come) and rarities (some music shops from Madrid will be represented), discussion forums, a jam session (where everyone is invited to participate), bar service, a rarities raffle (with T-Shirts, CDs...) and several other suprises... The main act of the event will be the Mike Oldfield tribute concert which will be performed by the group Amadian, a well known folk/rock fusion group from Madrid, who will play versions of all of the artist's discography. It will be the first time that a music group does a concert based in versions of a whole 25+ year discography. This is the projected setlist for the concert (the order might change):
Tubular Bells Part 1, Tubular Bells Part 2, The Sailor's Hornpipe, Excerpt from Hergest Ridge Part 1, Ommadawn Part 2, Portsmouth, In Dulci Jubilo, Hymn to Diana (Incantations Part 2), Excerpt from Incantations Part 4, North Star (Platinum Part 4), Arrival, Planxty Fanny Power, Taurus I+II (excerpt), Orabidoo, Crises (excerpt), The Lake (excerpt) , The Wind Chimes Part 1, Innocent, Excerpt from Amarok + Serpent Dream, Music from the Balcony, Maya Gold, In the Beginning + Let There be Light + Crystal Clear, O Son do Ar (The Song of the Sun), Women of Ireland, Dark Island, Mike's Reel, The Top Of The Morning, From the Ashes, The Doges Palace

I really like to go there, but it is too far away. frown Why didn't they pick Germany or England? That would be more suitable.

And if I can get there, I will bring my bodhran, synthesizer, recorder etc. for the jam sessions. Play Oldfield songs! woohoo! wink

I hope they play some rare Oldfield video clips.

I have a few comments regarding the songs that will be played by Amadian.

  1. Firstly, nothing much from Tubular Bells 2!! One of his best albums, and thay have totally ignored it, except for Maya Gold, one of the weaker tracks on the album. Where is Sentinel??!!
  2. No Secrets/Far Above the Clouds!!! Again, one of his best bits.
  3. Thirdly, no rarities and...
  4. What is Planxty Fanny Power?????

I did some research and it seems that "Fanny Planxty Power" formed part of the set list for a live performance Mike did in Munich in 1982. I initially thought it was some obscure reference to the plain-looking, bi-sexual, gold-digging bimbo (Fanny Vandekerkhove rolleyes ) Mike was living with last year but the song is actually traditional Irish/Celtic.

Well,... there are some rarities. You only have to be able to recognize it!
Fanny "Plantxi" Power IS a rarity, indeed... A very interesting one! Paddy Moloney did a great performance on it, along wiht Mike and Morris Pert. A nice traditional song never released, what a pitty!

And there is Mike´s Reel, another unreleased rarity, and never played live yet. Great stuff!

...and I never heard Music from the Balcony played live...sould be interesting.

And...err...sorry..., Secrets/Far above the Clouds "one of his best hits"???? UUUUFFF!!!
Honestly, I doubt it.

Cheers!!!

Well, The Fan Meeting was GREAAAAAAAAT!!!
I arrived in the evening. The video session was very surprising, I wathched many new videos in a very, very big TV. Everything was very good arranged.

The tribute concert was the best concert of the year (I´m still waiting for Roger Waters,but Amadian are better). It was wonderful, songs from every album, almost three hours of GREAT MUSIC.
