Martin Barre was guitarist for Jethro Tull from 1968 untill 2012 and his sound and playing was an undeniably major factor in their success, including 65 million records sold. Aqualung brought Jethro Tull to the forefront of the mainstream rock arena in 1971, with Martin’s historic riffs, power chords and soaring melodic solos as a central part of it’s sound. His solo in the title track was voted one of the top 20 best guitar solos of all times in Guitar World and MusicRadar, and with the band he got a Grammy in 1988. Apart from Jetrho Tull, Martin has collaborated with artists like Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore and has shared stage with Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and many more.
On the 2021 world tour Martin will be bringing a spectacular show playing Aqualung in its entirety with his touring band – featuring Dan Crisp on lead vocals, Alan Thomson on bass, and Darby Todd on drums. Martin himself says: “Aqualung was the album that defined Tull. Sumptuous melodies, big dynamics and power riffs galore. Acoustic met electric…and it all worked. 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.”
Throughout the years, Martin has played around 70 concerts in Sweden and Denmark with Jethro Tull, but 2021 will be the first for his own band to come here, and we’re so much looking forward to it! Very welcome!
