Description

Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre will be joined by a full band that includes longtime Tull bandmates Dee Palmer and Clive Bunker for a night of classic Jethro Tull – “Aqualung,” “Bungle in the Jungle,” “Locomotive Breath,” “Cross Eyed Mary” and more!

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’sunique sound is guitarist Martin Barre, renowned for his formidable mastery of historic rifts, 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, 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 musical career. It is the most significant Tull show of the past two decades, truly a very special concert that will do justice to the legend.
