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 centre of Tull’s unique 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.

Clive Bunker – was the original drummer with Tull and played on Stand Up, Benefit & Aqualung he was part of the original band that stormed the USA from 1969.

Dee Palmer – arranged string, brass, and woodwind parts for Jethro Tull songs in the late 1960s through to the present day. Formally joining 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!
