The Orb To Perform Tubular Bells

by Paul Cashmere - May 31 2009

House pioneers The Orb will pay tribute to Mike Oldfield`s classic `Tubular Bells` with a special performance of the piece called Orbular Bells.

The performance will take place in London on June 6th as part of the British Music Experience, a new and permanent exhibition to be housed at the O2 Arena.

The Orb will perform a DJ set featuring the Tubular Bells music while in another performance, The Hard Bell Ringers of Great Britain will do their own version of the classic on the same day.

Paul Lilley, curator of The British Music Experience, commented: "Tubular Bells is a much loved classic British album and I can't think of a more appropriate place to celebrate it than at The British Music Experience, fast becoming the home of music history in the UK. Interactivity is key to the exhibition and I know children and adults alike will be clamouring to have a go themselves."

The event is free to attend.


  1. Hi

    Is there any info anywhere on what this show was like or whether it was recorded. Sounds intriguing but seems to be no comments on it anywhere. Was it recorded? Or was it all a dream... cheers hidden persudaers :-)

  2. It wasn't a dream - I rang in it, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Photos are posted on the Gallery at
