Mike goes all out and performs with an orchestra and a choir. The concert was an outdoor affair in Berlin complete with light show and fireworks, of course. The music is a mix of "classic" Oldfield" along with pieces written specifically to commemorate the start of the new millennium. Kind of amusing to see everyone trying to keep warm out there, probably would have all frozen to death without the lights. All in all, an enjoyable performance and more entertaining to watch than standard New Year's fare if you happen to be staying at home
