Cost: See event description Description
"In 1969, a band of four English musicians arrived in New York and literally took America by storm. Over the next 50 years, this legendary band accumulated over 65 million record sales and a following of loyal fans that are the envy of rock bands worldwide! This band was Jethro Tull. At the center of Tull’s unique sound is guitarist Martin Barre, renowned for his formidable mastery of historic riffs, power chords and soaring melodic solos.
Martin is celebrating the history of Jethro Tull with a ‘Tour of Tours.’ He will be bringing a spectacular show with his touring band, featuring Dan Crisp on lead vocals, Alan Thomson on keyboard, and Darby Todd on drums, with Becca Langsford and Alex Hart on vocals, plus two very special guests – Dee Palmer and Clive Bunker – both of whom performed with Tull for many years and were an important part of their success.
The show will also feature a special multimedia presentation that, together with the music, highlights the 50 years of Jethro Tull’s musical career.
This is the most significant Tull show of the past two decades, truly a very special concert that will do justice to the legend.
Clive Bunker was Jethro Tull’s original drummer and played on Stand Up, Benefit & Aqualung. He was part of the original band that stormed the USA from 1969 on.
Dee Palmer has arranged string, brass, and woodwind parts for Jethro Tull songs in the late 1960s through to the present day. She formally joined the group in 1976, playing keyboards on albums including Songs from The Wood, Heavy Horses & Stormwatch.
The tour ‘Martin Barre Performs Classic Jethro Tull’ will be supported by Martin’s 50 years of Tull album, released worldwide."

The HillBenders and Supe Granda from the Ozark Mountain Daredevils (Jan. 6) and former Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre (Jan. 21-22) are among the artists playing at the Wildey Theatre in January.
Intelligencer file photo EDWARDSVILLE – The New Year will ring in a whole new slate of concerts at the Wildey Theatre, but Wildey manager Al Canal isn’t waiting until the calendar turns to provide some entertainment.
On Jan. 21 and Jan. 22, guitarist Martin Barre returns to the Wildey to perform classic Jethro Tull.
Barre was the band’s lead guitarist from 1968 until the band's initial dissolution in 2011. He played on all of Jethro Tull's studio discography except for their 1968 debut album.
This time, Barre and his band will play Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung” in its entirety to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the album’s 1971 release.
“Martin Barre is the sound behind ‘Aqualung’ and some of the other classic Jethro Tull albums,” Canal said. “This show has been rescheduled a couple times and now he’s going to play ‘Aqualung’ and this will be the first time the album has been performed from start to finish. Jethro Tull never did that.
“If you love Jethro Tull, this is a great show to see. Martin will also be playing a lot of the band’s other great songs.”

“Aqualung” is Tull’s fourth studio album and was released in March 1971 by Chrysalis Records. The album’s success signaled a turning point in the career of the band, which went on to become a major radio and touring act.
Recorded at Island Records' studio in London, “Aqualung” was their first album with keyboardist John Evan as a full-time member, their first with new bassist Jeffrey Hammond, and last album featuring Clive Bunker on drums, who quit the band shortly after the release of the album.
“Aqualung” is Jethro Tull's best-selling album, selling more than 7 million units worldwide. The album spawned two singles, “Hymn 43” and “Locomotive Breath,” as well as the title track which is an iconic song on its own. Barre’s solo on this track considered as one of classic rock’s greatest guitar solos ever.
Barre and the band will also be performing a career-spanning set of many of the Tull classics fans have loved for many years, along with deep catalog tracks from the band’s various albums.
Barre served as the guitarist of Jethro Tull for 43 years. His signature sound is a major factor in the band’s legendary success. His playing has earned him high levels of respect and recognition. His playing on “Aqualung” was voted 25th best solo ever in the United States and 20th in the UK.
As well as his work on numerous Jethro Tull albums, Barre has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa and Chris Thompson. He has shared a stage with such legends as Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

jackinthegreen: Cream without Eric??? Santana without Carlos?? and not even with a stand-in player.....you're easily pleased, I reckon most people would not be happy to say the least...
Apr 30, 2022 23:45:36 GMT
jackinthegreen: If it was Scott that got Covid would they have played the gigs without a drummer?
May 1, 2022 0:01:38 GMT
ash: It's Tull not Cream and my answer stands. Now it there was no flute player...No flute no Tull . I've seen Ian play with just an ipod backing track it was great
May 3, 2022 16:04:21 GMT
jackinthegreen: "No flute, no Tull".......hmmmm tell that to MB when he's doing all the Tull stuff..
May 3, 2022 20:18:27 GMT
jackinthegreen: and I've seen Ian doing his one man thing with just the backing track too, but that's not billed as a Jethro Tull concert.....
May 3, 2022 20:19:44 GMT
jackinthegreen: I do agree he's brilliant at playing to his own backing tracks though
May 3, 2022 20:20:48 GMT
ash: My first answer stands in stone
May 4, 2022 10:00:23 GMT
