Why in Spain?? Why not in G. Britain? That's more obvious, no?

Mike´s record contract is with Warner Spain,not UK.
That´s the reason for that.

Will it be open to the public?  Not like I'll have time to drop everything and run to Spain... LOL :p  

Though I'm going to visit there in the summer, I hope! :)  Anyone have a place for a fellow Mike Oldfield fan to stay in Barcelona, Madrid, and Ibiza?

Christopher

PS would someone please find me a poster (very big preferably) for TB2003?  I would greatly appreciate any help in acquire such an item and will pay a 'reasonable' price.

Why in Spain? Because, unfortunately, this is only the place where public still play him some attention, where WEA was interested in signing a recording contract with him, where media covered exahustively the launching of Tres Lunas, ( all kinds of opinions, of course), where you can listen to his music promoted on the radio, where you can purchase his new singles easily...Don´t misunderstand me because I´m Spanish, on the contrary, I keep on thinking that it was a mistake to sign with a filial ( Spanish or whatever), I knew this is a way only to get less audience, I will always prefer a more international Oldfield so all I´ve said above it´s said in anger.
Of course, we must applaud the Spanish audience, no need to mention.
What I would like to know is what the reasons for that are: anybody knows?

Sorry, I wanted to write "pay him attention", not play.
Greetings from Spain. Welcome again Mike. What about the concerts, there are no news and I think it´s time we should know something. Mmmm...I don´t like the look of this.

The fact is,this is an international forum....and english is the language most people know(even if it´s just a little bit),so you can communicate that well.

This will be quite off topic but I must post it:

Tubular Prayer

Our Mike, who art a musical legend,
popular be thy name again.
Tubular Bells 2003's release date come.
Promote your albums properly,
in the rest of the world as you do in Spain.

Give us next time a completely new album.
Forgive us our critical comments,
as we forgave you the bass sound.
And let us not to get fed up with Tubular Bells,
but do a world tour.
Amen.

The comment of Mariano is only a joke. Possibly you don't understand it but it's our humor. We will always speak in English, don't worry.
P.D. Es que los pobres no entienden nuestro humor, Mariano, qué le vamos a hacer ;)

Paul and Chris of Dark Star

I know you two read this forum so how about answering a question on release in America...

I went to my local record shop (Sam Goody) today and asked if they had a release date for Tubular Bells 2003 on their list of releases... well BIG SURPRISE... NOT!... TB2003 was not listed anywhere and they have all the new releases through the end of the summer.  So if WEA is ACTUALLY releasing this "worldwide" on May 27th... how come no shop in America including Amazon.com have a clue about it???  Is America just dreaming WEA said this???

Hmm...I think 'worldwide' is Warner-Speak for 'in spain' ;)

They'd probably give you some kind of twisted definition if you were to ask them what they mean by worldwide (perhaps the answer is something like "Sure, we're releasing it worldwide...we won't ship any copies outside Europe, but it'll be released everywhere...").

Perhaps if everyone in the US who wants a copy (along with those people who can't play it because of the copy protection) organised a mass public bootlegging of the album, then they'd get the message that perhaps they should be conducting their business slightly differently...
