Tull guitarist Martin Barre reunites with his former Jethro Tull bandmates Clive Bunker (drums) and Dee Palmer (keyboards) in celebration of the band's 50th anniversary.
The tour will include Martin's touring band, featuring Dan Crisp on lead vocals, Alan Thomson on keyboard, Darby Todd on Drums, with Becca Langsford and Ali Hart on vocals.
As Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson are taking a break from touring, Martin has put together a band to play the "classic" music from the Tull catalogue. His band is a total commitment to give the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years.
