A Glasgow gig has been announced to mark the 50th anniversary of an iconic album.

The event will mark five decades since Tubular Bells, the debut album of English singer Mike Oldfield.

The 1973 album is world-renowned as part of the soundtrack for the horror classic The Exorcist and the star is continuing the anniversary events after last year's success.

The concert will take place on Sunday, October 13, at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

It will feature an expansive live group, conducted and arranged by Oldfield’s long-term collaborator Robin Smith.

The show will see the legendary album performed in full, as well as other works by Oldfield, including Moonlight Shadow, Summit Day, Family Man and Ommadawn.

General sale for the gig starts at 10am on Friday, April 19.

Tubular Bells is a journey through classical, jazz, folk, progressive rock and electronica and went on to win a Grammy for Best Instrumental Composition in 1974.

Mike Oldfield was just 17 years old when he started composing the music.

He recorded and played almost all the instruments on the album, which gained worldwide recognition when the opening theme was used for the soundtrack of The Exorcist and went on to become the highest-selling instrumental album of all time.
