JETHRO TULL’S MARTIN BARRE AQUALUNG 50TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR + SPECIAL GUESTS Clive Bunker

Introduction…

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.

Aqualung, probably the most famous and celebrated of all of Jethro Tull’s albums, is now celebrating 50 years since its release in 1971. At the centre of Tull’s unique sound is guitarist
Martin Barre, who is renowned for his formidable mastery of historic riffs, power chords and soaring melodic solos.

Martin is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of the iconic and legendary album Aqualung with a worldwide tour throughout 2021. Territories will include South America, USA,
Canada and Europe. He will be bringing a spectacular show playing the album in its entirety with his touring band The Martin Barre Band – featuring Dan Crisp on lead vocals, Alan Thomson on keyboard, and Darby Todd on Drums; together with former Jethro Tull band member Clive Bunker on drums and percussion.

Martin Says:

“Aqualung was the album that defined Tull. Sumptuous melodies, big dynamics and power riffs galore. Acoustic met electric…and it all worked.”

The anniversary tour will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to sit back and relive this legendary album, being played in full and in sequence for the first time.
