    Gotta say...I'm fairly interested in this. Probably helps that I'm on a major Tull binge right now. If it comes near me I might be tempted to take the plunge.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    That is exciting, but I do kinda wish that this was touring the USA:

    Martin Barre and Barriemore Barlow will be touring Latin and South America next March with Adam Wakeman!
    His show celebrating 50 years of Jethro Tull will be a historic moment and a global first, as Martin will be joined by former Jethro Tull drummer Barriemore Barlow. It will be the first time the two have shared a stage together since the 1980’s. Barriemore famed for playing with Tull alongside Martin between 1971 to 1980 featured on albums “Thick as a Brick”, “Passion Play” and “Stormwatch”.
    Adam Wakeman, keyboardist for Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne will also be joining as a special guest for this spectacular show touring throughout Latin and South America.
