Fans will recognise hit songs from 1968 to date, spanning a number of their albums including Aqualung, Locomotive Breath, Bourée and Heavy Horses. The band will even showcase tracks from their 2022 and 2023 albums, so expect to hear something new.

Oh, and in case you’re curious, the band is named after Jethro Tull (1664 – 1741), a British agronomist and inventor. A peculiar name for a band to pick, but it is an interesting story. When the group first started out, the band name kept changing as they awaited their big break. They finally stuck to Jethro Tull after a club manager enjoyed their show and invited them to perform at his club.
