Jethro Tull was a good show

Although some people apparently hold no fascination with Jethro Tull, that's okay with me...they didn't go. 8^)

Lee's spare ticket was in the $100 seats at the Warner Theater. Wow. Those seats are mighty comfy. I won't say what was paid for them...because I don't know. Lee's friends apparently have an in with the Theater. Go, Lee! They wouldn't take any money from me, either, so I've no idea what the deal was. I'm just extremely pleased I got to go.

This was my 3rd time seeing Tull. First time was in late May, 2nd time was midsummer. Tonight was the 2nd date of this tour. I don't think I'll ever need to see them later than that in the tour again. This was far and away the best I'd seen them. Granted, the venue was most of that...we were close enough to see the performers expressions and their antics, rather than just "Look, over there...that's the stage!" 8^)

I don't need to list what they played...although I could have taken down the list (the Warner doesn't check to see what you bring in, and I had my Palm) and if someone states their curiosity, I will regurgitate what I can remember. I was simply pleased to have a comfortable seat, good line-of-sight, and excellent music. Ian's voice wasn't gone yet (IMO; Lee had a different opinion) and the band overall was a pleasure to watch. Each time I see them, however, they get (on average) younger...Tull has always been more mutable than most bands, so members swap in and out frequently. I think I'm older than the bass player. Yeesh.

But I'm exhausted. 10 hour work day, followed up by quick ride home, Metro down to the show, Metro back from the show, and drive back from the Metro. Time to take out the contact lenses and other good stuff like that. Perhaps if I have something more profound to say, I'll mention it later. Yay!

in fact...
You *are* older than the bass player. (Jon Noyce, by the by.) But not by much--he's my age. ;-)

As for the "changing band members," Jon is the only one not in the band when we saw it together, so....I guess Andy Giddings (early 40s, I believe) just looks young. Doane's been with the band since 1987 (on and off) and Martin since 1969. And Ian, well....

I know waaaay too much about this stuff....

Re: in fact...
You do, actually, but then I'm hardly one to be talking to people about obsessive collection of random facts.

Glass houses and all...

*sigh* I am glad you had such a great evening...if a little jealous ;-)

I was worried that it wasn't going to be good. I'd worked a lot of hours that day and haven't been feeling well for a good chunk of the last week. I'm pleased that it all did go well. 8^)
