As Jethro Tull are taking a long break from touring, Martin Barre, legendary Rock guitarist who toured the world with Tull for 43 years, has put together a band called Martin Barre’s New Day to play the “classic” music from the Tull catalogue; they will be playing at the Duchess in York on November 20, 2012.
Martin commented; “I’m really looking forward to playing the November gigs with my new band; they include other members of Jethro Tull and other top musicians from a similar background. It’s great to play some of the early tracks from Tull but there’s also a few surprises in store!”.
After selling a staggering 60 million albums worldwide and working with international music superstars from Paul McCartney and Phil Collins to Hendrix and Led Zeppelin; Martin continues his remarkable career playing with an array of celebrated musicians representing an important part of rock history.
