Jethro Tull set list database

On 2 June, 2001, Emil, then owner of the (now defunct) 'My Jethro Tull Club' at Yahoo! Clubs, asked:

I know people have asked this question before, but where is it that one can find a list of all the set lists from the different tours? I know they're out there somewhere...but where?

It soon emerged that, to the best of the collective MJTC knowledge, there was no such central repository of Tull set lists; a surprising omission.

So we volunteered.

We present a database of all Tull (and 'pre-Tull') concerts, having substantially corrected, reworked and extended all publicly-available tour schedules, by direct research and contributions from audience members. By the end of 2011, 3,130 Tull shows will have been performed, plus 281 Anderson solo gigs, plus numerous media appearences.

Pre-existing web- and print-published attempts are, frankly, rather poor, with numerous errors and omissions, so we rapidly met our primary intention: with the assistance of 'the worldwide Tull community', to provide THE definitive listing, at the core of the Tour History, immediately considerably overtaking the accuracy of the official 1968-92 listing, and both Rees' & Russo's versions. That's a start, but we're still pushing.

The next stage, which is far from complete, is to incorporate the set lists themselves. We have a large number, but it's hoped the 'global fan base' can fill in quite a few more gaps.
We don't expect to provide a set list for every single show, but this shouldn't be necessary, as set lists on the major tours rarely changed drastically show-to-show.

We do use some quality-control, as there's always a slight chance that the best-intentioned audience member might forget precise details. Wherever there is doubt, information is double-checked and often corroborated by other accounts. If doubt remains, this is noted in the listings. We don't blindly trust everything we're told!

A further objective is to index Tull's radio and TV appearences over the years; we'd really appreciate some assistance. We particularly require recording dates, rather than the broadcast dates of prerecorded shows, and recording locations (not just network or affiliate station names). Please let us know if you can help.


Key

All dates are in standard international format: day-month-year.

Location details are given as Venue-City-Country, plus, for US venues, State.
Venue
    Where a venue name is an obvious derivative of its location, it is abbreviated - for example, it should be obvious that 'Convention Center, Anaheim, Ca.' refers to the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, Ca.
We're attempting to list venues for all concerts, but there are several gaps - can you help eliminate them?
City
    Although country names are in English, the anglicised forms of city names have generally been avoided in the main listings. Selected translations are here.
Country
    Note that there is no such sovereign nation as 'England' - it is merely part of the United Kingdom, just as Kansas is part of the USA.

Where a bootleg recording of a show is known to exist, the title is stated. This is emphatically not an endorsement of commercial bootlegging; the Ministry recommends sharing of CD-Rs, provided no money changes hands, and never as a substitute for official releases. Bootlegs that are primarily compilations are omitted. Note that quoted set lists are for full shows; the named bootlegs might not include all tracks.

The positioning of most 'Back To Top' icons in the listings somewhat reflects the structure of each year's touring: generally, UK tours, mainland European tours, East- and West-Coast N.American tours, and (rarely) time-off from touring.
