Band are on top form at start of Euro Tour
I’ve seen them recently, at Keighley in April - Just the second night of the start of their 2018 European Tour, but straight out of the blocks we find the master at his best.
As the show got into its stride the licks just got better and better with Martin and the band blending the old Tull numbers with classy blues and ‘Back to Steel’ Numbers.
It may be some months away but I’m already looking forward to Wakefield’s gig as there’ll be the ‘soon to be released’ new album material to enjoy. Dan Crisp - brilliant - breathes new life and a stronger (than aging IA) voice to the classic tracks of Jethro Tull.
As Martin sprinted to the shows finish line there was ‘New Day Yesterday’ to savour with an almost flying leap off Stage to thundering applause. Then an encore performance and literal drum kit explosion
A memorable evening at the Keighley gig I was at which was topped off by a nice chat with Martin afterwards. A real treat - so the Wakefield date in November is one not to be missed.
