    That tour was the last of the 4 Tull shows that I saw in the 70's. The other ones were Thick Brick, War Child, & Too Old To Rock & Roll. They were always amazing.

    Nice! Some of the more limited footage of John Glascock on the bass.

    "And now to lay to rest any ugly rumours that John Glascock is a kinky b*st*rd who likes being thrashed severely on the bum....we'll do so only slightly...in the next song."

    I love his witty banter!

    Awesome!
    I've seen JT twice....1st time, Halloween night 1975, I.U. Assembly Hall.
    The crowd (and the band) were outrageously dressed. It was the 'War Child' tour I think. Gawd, the band was ON.
    Last time was 4 years ago, in a small college auditorium in Michigan.
    Considerably older, with voice changed a bit....but the band was still ON.
    Enjoyed both shows.

    Lifelong Tullie here...

    Had it on 8-track when I was 9.

    Saw JT at SPAC in like '87 or '88 (Crest of the Knave tour). One of the few bands I would endure a concert crowd to see again.

    I saw them in the late 70's early 80's, I think it was the Stormwatch tour, somewhere around the Bursting Out period. I wish that Bursting Out version of Songs From The Wood was the full arrangement, I really like the mix on that one better than the studio album.

    Live Bursting Out is still in heavy rotation in my CD collection.
