Went to opening night in Seattle Sept 12th. The first set, Homo Erraticus, was expertly portrayed but was frankly a bit boring. The band came alive for the second set of Tull tunes. "Teacher" and "Critique Oblique" were wonderful surprises! Overall, an enjoyable show, but I can't help but think that without Martin, this is really Ian and a "Tull cover band". Bring back Jethro Tull!
I saw the show in the UK and enjoyed HE mire than I did on album, the stage show seemed to make the recorded version more listenable and since then the album has grown on me more and more. The second half is well worth the money for the injection of some old classics into the set. Made all the better for the use of the backdrop projections. Something old Tull shows had lacked, relying on the barest minimum. I too miss Martin and it's a pity that he's not around as part of this reinvigoration of Tull but the break does seem to have allowed him to cut loose and recent interviews prove that he has landed on both feet and is moving on.
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.
