Tour of Europe 1979 was a concert tour by the British multi-instrumentalist Mike Oldfield.


It was his first tour, 6 years after his debut album, Tubular Bells. It was used as promotion for the Incantations album. The tour spawned a record release, Exposed, and later a concert video, Exposed. Initially during the tour the concerts were being recorded without the knowledge of the musicians, so that they could be paid less money; for just a performance and not a recording, the musicians found out, but the recordings went ahead and the album was produced.[1]
