Report on the Jethro Tull concert
Advertisements [?]
Wow wow wow wow!!!!

Now, I went as a supporter of hubby, who is mainly the Tull fan in the family. But I am gonna have to listen to more Tull myself now.

We were at the Maine center for the Arts, a cozy venue which seats 1620 souls. The band broke the concert down into two parts: Acoustic first, & "make your ears bleed" second.

The patter between songs was witty and entertaining, and Ian Anderson's antics were a lot of fun, though I hear he was really something to behold in concert 30 years ago. :) The humongous helium balloons with Anderson's pied piper silhouette plastered on their sides were a gas (pun intended), but they never reached us up in the balcony section.

They only played a few newer songs, and I rather liked their funky take on "We Three Kings". They played most, if not all, of the Aqualung album, and many other older tunes. The only one they didn't do that I'd hoped to hear was "The Whistler"

Sadly, there was no opportunity to get an autograph, which was a bummer on account of hubby had their second album (vinyl) cover with him. It's a woodcut pic and in pretty decent shape and would have looked great with a few names scrawled across it. Also, I did not run into Stephen King. I had kinda figured that was as good a place as any to bump into him, but no dice.

If the pics we snapped turn out, I'll be sure to post them. :D
