songs played on tour

There were 132 scheduled Jethro Tull concerts in 1971.
This page lists January-May, whilst June-December dates are here.

We're still unsure of several setlists - can you help?
As quoted by the 'Aqualung' 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition, though still being updated... sorry, guys!

Scheduled UK release date of the 'Lick Your Fingers Clean' single, but it was withdrawn, apparently because the title track was considered insufficiently commercial. The track was eventually released in 1988....

Considering other setlists from this period, 'Hymn 43' was unexpected – if it was played, this was the world premiere, over a month before it appeared again. However, an audience member confirms that it wasn't merely spliced into the recording by a bootlegger.

Known MTH tour dates suggest this concert must have been between 6 & 11 May (asked in 2003, MTH drummer Dale Griffin didn't remember this show, but acknowledged it as credible) but a radio station's ticket archive supports this date.
