From the PR:

The Millennium Bell was directed by Gert Hof and welcomed in the new millennium with the world's most spectacular light-show 'Art In Heaven', all set to the timeless music of Mike Oldfield live in concert.

Twelve fluorescent light balloons, 250 rare xenon gas space cannons and 550 special stage lights were used to turn the sky above Berlin into a unique pyramid of light. More than half a million fans experienced this superlative show set at the foot of Berlin's beautiful victory column.

The classics Tubular Bells, Moonlight Shadow and Shadow On The Wall receive stunning performances aided by The State Orchestra and The Glinka State Choir of St. Petersburg. Mike also chose this event to premiere tracks from his album 'The Millennium Bell', sealing the evening's entertainment with the special Art In Heaven.

Tubular Bells II & III Live is a double-sided, two concert DVD extravaganza. Side one presents the captivating Tubular Bells II, originally performed at the stunning Edinburgh Castle during September 1992. Directed by Mike Newman, it contains vibrant and beautiful performances of Dark Star, Clear Light, Blue Saloon, Sunjammer, Red Dawn, The Bell, Weightless and Moonshine, to name but a few.

Tubular Bells III - side two of Live, was recorded at Horse Guards Parade, London in 1998. The legendary Hamish Hamilton directs this introspective collection of 14 tracks, including The Source Of The Secrets, The Watchful Eye, Jewel In The Crown, Moonwatch and Secrets, to name just a few of the pieces performed on the night.
Tubular Bells 2003 DVD-A, has been completely re-recorded by Mike Oldfield, playing all the instruments and producing the album as he did on the original version. Showcasing outstanding Advanced Resolution Multi-Channel Surround Sound, this DVD-A album will encompass three distinctive audio soundtracks that will play on DVD-Video players. DVD-A supplementary material includes video extracts from Tubular Bells II & III Live, a Photo Gallery, Discography and 5.1 Production Notes written by audio engineer Ben Darlow.
