Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre & A Brief History Of Tull Tour
June 22, 2023 @ 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
In 1969, a band of four English musicians arrived in New York and took America by storm. Over the next 50 years, this legendary band sold more than 65 million albums, and developed a following of loyal fans that are the envy of rock bands worldwide! This band, of course, was Jethro Tull. At the center of Tull’s unique sound is guitarist Martin Barre, renowned for his formidable mastery of historic riffs, power chords and soaring melodic solos. As Jethro Tull’s guitarist for more than 43 years, Barre’s sound and playing was a major factor in their success. Martin’s guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition throughout his distinguished career. His solos were voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing onAqualung. His playing on the album Crest of a Knave earned him a Grammy award in 1989.
Now, Martin Barre returns to The Playhouse to celebrate the musical journey of Jethro Tull throughout the decades with his new show A Brief History of Tull. The show will feature a special visual presentation that, together with the music, highlights the 50 years of Jethro Tull’s musical career. He will be bringing a spectacular show with his touring band, featuring the iconic voice of Dan Crisp on lead vocals, Alan Thomson on bass and Darby Todd on drums.
