Tubular Bells III, The Premiere Performance is a live concert video by Mike Oldfield released in 1998.

It was released on VHS and Laserdisc in 1998, and later packaged with Tubular Bells II Live on DVD, which was certified Gold in UK.[2]

The Concert[edit]

The video is a full faithful performance from the premiere concert of the Tubular Bells III album at Horse Guards Parade, London and was released by Warner Music. The concert finishes with encores of "Secrets" and "Far Above the Clouds". "Tubular Bells Part one", "Moonlight Shadow" and "Family Man" were also performed during the encore, but due to these being written by Oldfield when he was with Virgin Records they do not appear on the video.[3]

During the performance of "Man in the Rain" the lights unexpectedly cut out.[4] Oldfield's former Virgin record boss, Richard Branson, was also in the audience.[5]
