Jethro Tull-October & November 2005 tourdates

The lineup of Jethro Tull features singer/flutist/multi-instrumentalist Ian Anderson, guitarist Martin Barre, drummer Doane Perry, keyboardist Andrew Giddings and bassist Jonathan Noyce.  This is the most consistent lineup the group has had in its entire history.  Perry joined around 1980, Giddings about 1990, and Noyce in the mid-’90s after working with Ian on his solo project DIVINITIES.

And true to consistency, Tull are touring again in the states this fall. This tour will include two days at Carnegie Hall, and the band hasn’t played that illustrious venue since the 1970s.  Folks who buy tickets will also receive a free copy of AQUALUNG, an album that features some overlooked acoustic Tull songs.

I’m setting interviews up with Ian and Martin for nationals and monthlies in August, and we’ll get to regular tour press in September.  I hope to get a lot of folks talking with Martin this tour, because it’s my tenth anniversary working with him.
