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 Tulls 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.

A performance by today’s Blasters––vocalist-guitarist Phil Alvin, drummer Bill Bateman, bassist John Bazz, and guitarist Keith Wyatt––reflects influences that range from George Jones and Carl Perkins to Howlin’ Wolf, James Brown and Bo Diddley. The band’s 1980 debut album American Music (Rollin’ Rock) was a powerful collection of fresh, distinctive performances that shattered the artificial boundaries between blues, rockabilly, country, R&B and rock & roll.
