First Tull Concert Site Marked

The band had not yet taken the name of the agrarian inventor, but the concert The Blades played at the Holy Family Church in Blackpool, England now displays a plaque that makes it the official site of the first Jethro Tull concert.  Ian Anderson was there Thursday (2/25) for the unveiling of the plaque marking the 1964 concert, telling those assembled he was 'honoured and delighted that the birthplace of my musical career has been chosen to be marked in this way.'  Anderson and Tull alums Jeffrey Hammond and John Evens were in the band at the time, which Anderson estimates was around 3,000 concerts ago.
