Martin Barre celebrates 50 Years of Jethro Tull

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 riffs, power chords and soaring melodic solos.
Martin is celebrating the fifty-year anniversary of Jethro Tull, with a ‘Tour of Tours’. An event to do justice to Tull’s amazing history. 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 Ali Hart on vocals. Plus, two very special guests – Jonathan Noyce 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 multi-media presentation that, together with the music, highlights the 50 years of Jethro Tull 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.

    • Question re Jethro Tull show on May 25, 2019: Is this concert with or without Ian Anderson?

      • Hi Dave, unfortunately, Ian Anderson will not be playing in this show. The original members that will be playing are listed on the Jethro Tull event page in the description.

    • Hi Ron –

      My Tickets say that this show is May 25th – not May 10th as is indicated on your Website.
      Please clarify.

      Thanks – John Cerauli

      • Hi John, that is correct. The show was originally the 25th but is now May 10th, your tickets will be good for this date even though they say the 25th. Sorry for the confusion!

    • Hi Ron,

      The tickets I bought advertise 50 years of Jethro Tull in America. I thought concert included Ian Anderson. No Ian Anderson — slightly deceptive — how can I get a refund?

      • Hi Rich, I’m sorry that you were mislead, that was not our intention. You can call 630.962.7000 and explain the situation, and we will take care of your refund.
