These are some photos from the March 25th 1996 show from Washington DC. Tull had been touring South America, and Ian taken a bad fall injuring his knee on a poorly constructed stage in Lima Peru on the 19th. Tull preformed two nights later in Las Paz Bolivia, but cancelled the show on the 23 in Caracas, Venezuela. The 11 city tour in the USA started on the 25th in Philadelphia with Ian in a wheelchair for all of the shows. In early May Tull went to Australia playing on May 11th in Canberra, Ian was still in the wheelchair as he was for the following nights show in Sydney. The following day Ian was hospitalized with a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Thus forcing the cancellation of the last 4 shows in Australia. These pictures are from the Washington DC show, they are stills taken from VHS tape transfer, so the quality is not the best.
Today's stars would cancel a show over a broken fingernail.
Agreed! It took a lot of guts for him to perform like that; I saw them in August of that year, and by that time he was limping ontstage, but he put his all into the performance. It was the best rendition of "My God" I ever saw!
Quizz Kid: Well, we tried to spread the love and the word, build bridges, but when you get booted and blocked by twats for no reason it's a bit like the trash taking itself out for collection, good riddance to bad rubbish.
