Music Diary – 7th November

Welcome to my personal music diary – today for the 7th November!

Back in 1999 my long time favorite band Jethro Tull stopped during the „j-tull.com“ tour in Munich at the Rudi-Sedlmayer-Halle. Beside brand new songs like “Spiral”, “Hunt by Numbers” or “AWOL” Ian Anderson and his band surprised us with some nice tunes like “Jeffrey goes to Leicester Square”, “Hunting Girl” and a special performance with Leslie Mandoki (“Back to Budapest”).

The support was by The Mark Gillespie Band and I can remember that the Tull members Jonathan Noyce and Andrew Giddings joined for some songs on stage.

Music Diary – 24th June

Dear Musiclovers!

Here is my music diary entry for today, 24th June:
Back in 2003 I attended another Jethro Tull gig – this time in Munich at the Zenith. This is one of those locations you will never like – too huge and very cold.

The support act were Leslie Mandoki with his Soulmates feat. Masha, a german female singer and better known as the daughter of Frank Elstner. This is the guy who invented the German TV show „Wetten, dass..?“. And I do think this says it all 😉

The Tull performance was solid and unfortunately nothing special at all. Apart from the horrible background singing by Masha (especially during „Heavy Horses“ – she just killed this song) I can remember that Ian Anderson reminded us on buying Christmas presents because of the upcoming album called „The Jethro Tull Christmas Album„, which was released later that year.

The exact setlist and a short review can be found here (just scroll down to 24/06/2003):
