Jethro Tull Tickets for Sale

Jethro Tull was a unique phenomenon in popular music history. Their mix of hard rock; folk melodies; blues licks; surreal, impossibly dense lyrics; and overall profundity defied
easy analysis, but that didn't dissuade fans from giving them 11 gold and five platinum albums. At the same time, critics rarely took them seriously, and they were off the cutting edge of popular music since the end of the 1970s. But no record store in the country would want to be without multiple copies of each of their most popular albums (Benefit, Aqualung, Thick as a Brick, Living in the Past), or their various best-of compilations, and few would knowingly ignore their newest releases. Of their contemporaries, only Yes could claim a similar degree of success, and Yes endured several major shifts in sound and membership in reaching the 1990s, while Tull remained remarkably stable over the same period. As co-founded and led by wildman-flautist-guitarist-singer-songwriter Ian Anderson, the group carved a place all its own in popular music.

Jethro Tull is a progressive rock band that was formed in the 1960s. Their music is marked by the quirky vocal style and unique lead flute work of frontman Ian Anderson, and by unusual and often complex song construction. Their music has incorporated elements of classical and celtic folk music, as well as the art rock and alternative rock phases of rock music. Despite this, it is difficult to point to specific artists who have directly influenced or been influenced by Jethro Tull. More than many other rock bands, their music stands apart from the rest of rock music.

Jethro Tull "paid their dues" in clubs in the mid-to-late 1960s with a revolving line-up which eventually crystallized into Ian Anderson (vocals, flute, acoustic guitar, and later many other instruments), Mick Abrahams (electric guitar), Glenn Cornick (bass guitar) and Clive Bunker (drums). The story goes that the band went through a variety of name changes to get repeat bookings, and that Jethro Tull was the name they happened to sport when they scored a record deal (the name comes from the inventor of the seed drill). Their management were even suggesting that Abrahams do all the singing and the flute be eliminated, relegating Anderson to rhythm piano. After a couple of minor singles (including their first—an Abrahams-penned pop tune called Sunshine Day—on which the band's name was misspelled "Jethro Toe", now a collector's item), they released the bluesy album This Was in 1968. The music was written partly by Anderson and partly by Abrahams.

Following this album, Abrahams left (forming his own band, Blodwyn Pig), due to what was mainly a musical difference (Abrahams preferred to stick with the blues, which Anderson came to regard as a stylistically narrow and restrictive vocabulary for white "middle class" Englishmen). After a series of auditions (contrary to popular belief, not including Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi; he merely agreed to appear on the Rolling Stones' Rock 'n' Roll Circus, to perform A Song For Jeffrey), Martin Barre was hired as the new guitarist. Barre would become the longest-standing member of the band other than Anderson.
