Cleopatra Entertainment will release on Nov. 18 Tubular Bells 50th Anniversary Tour: Live At The Royal Festival Hall, a live concert recording, on 2-disc Blu-ray and 2-disc DVD set, also featuring a documentary on the history of the album and an interview with Mike Oldfield.

Mike said: “It’s amazing to think that it’s 50 years since I started writing Tubular Bells, and I am touched that my music has reached so many people, all over the world, during that time. I am sure that the 50th Anniversary Live Concert Experience of Tubular Bells will be spectacular, theatrical, fantastical and thrilling. I’m so excited [it] will be touring the world through to 2023, the 50th anniversary of the original album release.”

It's great that Mike as endorsed the Tubular Bells 50th Anniversary Tour but it is such a shame that we haven't heard much from Mike himself since his facebook page on January 3rd 2017! Thats nearly 6 years! What happened to TB4? I have every release Mike as made from Tubular Bells right through to Return To Ommadawn both on CD and vinyl so again it is dissapointing to say the least that we haven't had any new music from Mike since 2017! As Mike retired from the music scene? If so Mike please let us know so you can put us all out of our misery!

I have just been looking at the MVD Entertainment Group site mentioned in this post and to quote a line from the the description of the concert it's a "4K live concert recording" which gives the impression that this is a UHD 4K blu ray disc which it is not. It is just a regular Blu ray disc! very confusing indeed! One more point...the pre-order on Amazon UK  for the "The Tubular Bells - 50th Anniversary Celebration Concert" The 2xCD version is £20.90 the Double Vinyl being £38.79!
A bit steep don't you think?

I can't wait to see this and to hear this interview with Mike, as has been said, it is so long since we have heard anything from the maestro, surely with the big anniversary next year we should be hearing more from him.

I agree! Same here, Blu ray already pre-ordered. Wouldn't it be great though if Mike announced that "Tubular Bells 4" is finally going to be released in May 2023! If memory serves me right most of his earlier albums were released around his birthday in May. It would also coincide with the release of the original Tubular Bells 50th anniversary. And, maybe, just maybe, Mike himself could do a short (media) promo tour of the UK and maybe Europe to promote the new album? In the UK we have Later with Jools Holland, Graham Norton Show, Jonathan Ross Show to name a few, as well as the European TV/Radio stations. .

it seems than the 'interview' with Mike is not new. On the extras of the bluray there's this video:

and that's the only presence of Mike on the bluray and dvdTurning Back the clock with Mike Oldfield
