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. He will be bringing a spectacular show playing the album in its entirety with his touring band, The Martin Barre Band, including special guest Clive Bunker, Tull’s original drummer who played on Stand Up, Benefit & Aqualung. Ghostfinger Productions is proud to bring Martin Barre to Canada in March 2022.
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.
