Former Jethro Tull Guitarist Martin Barre Announces U.S. Tour

(Prog) Former Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre has announced plans for a US tour later this year. It's billed as An Evening Of Blues, Rock, Tull and is due to get underway on April 10 at the B.B. King Blues Club in New York.

Last year, Barre hit the road in support of latest album Back To Steel - but insisted while Tull's music would always feature in his live sets, he wanted his band to have their own identity.

He said: "Jethro Tull's music will always be a part of my work - but I hope it becomes about 40% instead of 60%. I will never turn my back on it, though. I'm not so stupid that I don't know that people come to hear me play so they can hear Tull. But a lot of that music is in me anyway. That's not far from home. It will always be there."
