Martin Barre’s New Day Tour

Martin Barre Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre will embark on a solo band tour of England and the rest of Europe at the end of September.

He’s concentrating on Martin Barre’s New Day while his Tull colleague Ian Anderson focuses on his Thick As A Brick 2 project. The guitarist recently said: “Since Ian and I have been playing together for many years, we have a mutual respect for one another – both as people and as musicians.

“It’s a marriage of understanding and giving the other person space, and knowing that the history and catalog of Jethro Tull’s music was of our making.”

Barre heads out on tour after appearing at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention on August 9. He recently completed work on his fifth solo album and is negotiating over a release in the near future.

Meanwhile, Tull will release a four-DVD set entitled Around The World Live on June 3 via Eagle Rock. It comes packaged in a 32-page hardback book containing photos from Ian Anderson’s personal archive and explanatory text on each live show.
