I think they might be touring the states some time this summer. I know Martin Barre is still in the band and Doane Perry on drums. I think they have a new bass player.

Touring through June and July for the 40th of Aqualung. They tour regularly and likely tour more or as much as any other classic English rock bands.

thanks. maybe they'll come to THE NATIONAL here in richmond one time. they've had ian anderson there. maybe i'm out of the loop but i can't see jethro tull playing a much bigger venue than that. the black crowes, queensryche, YES and gregg allman have all played there and they seem more popular in the states than jethro tull is now

I saw them last yr. It was surprisingly good, and Ian's minstrel prance is nearly undiminished! They filled about 3/4 of Chastain's 6k seats.

I thought for sure that they would be on the Jones Beach schedule but so far they aren't. Nothing that interests me this year at Jones Beach with the exception of Soundgarden which I will try to get a decent ticket for.

Tull is easily the hardest working band in rock and roll history, competing for the title only with the Grateful Dead, who were #1 until Garcia died in '95. They have toured incessantly, over 2,800 shows since their formation in 1968, (not including the Ian Anderson solo shows) without letting up, their last hiatus was 2010, but they don't do that very often, maybe once a decade.

check out this site for a year by year rundown of their shows, solo dates, setlists, and new releases. It is a truly incredible history.

Cool site. Thanks. Looking over shows that I hve seen is always cool.

Tull is definitely a hard working bands but do get buried by some acts for shows and number of people at them. Iron Maiden are easy front runners for both categories but those crazy bastards will tour endlessly and have maintained their arena status throughout which is pretty damned rare.. The Dead would annually be a top grossing act but that most more for stadium shows then individual shows and more towards the mid to end of Jerry's time with them and based on $$$.

Wet Willie is playing with J. Geils. If you're an ABB fan from back in the day (are you getting to hate that phrase or is it just me?) both bands were frequent openers. Saw Jimmy Hall - Wet Willie's lead man last week in Macon. He shouldn't be missed.

Now for Tull, they sold out Carnegie Hall a few years ago and were astonishing. I hope they extend this tour to the east coast because I would definitely not miss em.

Looks like I was wrong about Tull playing the most shows. Talking thru my a**hole, actually. But they have played more than Iron Maiden !

So they are definitely in the running for most shows of anyone.

Accordion to Wiki, Maiden had done over 2,000 shows as of 10/29 . I think Tull has them beat, maybe not by sales and crowds, but by number of shows.

The most shows goes to............CHEAP TRICK !!!! 5,0000 and counting !!! ARRRGGGHHH. Who is their audience? I don't want to know. No offense, Trick-heads, I'm just not seeing the draw, I guess.

And then there's Wayne Newton, 3,000 shows. (Awful thought: With those kind of numbers, it is a statistical certainty that someone, at some point, has dropped acid at a Wayne show. Think of the implications)

The Stones....around 2100, of those 1,000 were by 1967 !

Jimmy and the boys played here in Clearwater Friday night Liz. Taj Mahal last night.
Both were great shows, and both were free!

Hey even if you play at Great Adventure Amusement Park it still counts right?

ted nugent has played more than 6,000 shows. he released the 6,000 show on cd/dvd in 2009. twisted sister say they have played over 7,000 shows but this is counting the 2 shows in 1 night at the same club back in the day so not sure if any other bands are doing that on this list

So nice. It was great to spend some time with Jimmy and Miss Bonnie in the "green room" (which are never green to my knowledge) in Macon. Funny how when we get to meet our "idols" and realize that they're just like everybody else - wondering about retirement, how the kids are doing, the house, the car. At first, I'm kinda in awe but I've gotten brave enough in my old age to sit down and talk. Then you see them up on stage and realize, hell no, they're not like everybody else. Thanks to Willie P. for giving me the privilege of meeting so many incredible artists even though I'm still star struck at 58!

Yes the difference is that for many of the bands mentioned, they were the opening act and not the headliner. I have seen both Cheap Trick and Nugent open many times.

They can not take credit for the sales of the tickets even if a few die-hards were there for them. A band like Maiden has maintained their headline status throughout their career and pull in far more numbers than those mentioned. Doesn't make them better or worst, just selling far more tickets.

Tull plays the same theater here for every tour and will draw approx. 2000. Maiden's last trip through town drew 25000. They also regularly headline huge festivals and will tour pretty much the whole globe. Big difference in the numbers when playing to 10000+ every night as opposed to theaters.

As for Cheap Trick, have fun if you will but they are a pretty damned good live band and I am not a big fan. I have witnessed them blow many headliners away. Pack all their hits into a 45-60 minute set and it gets people going pretty good with all the hits they have had. Pretty tough act to follow.

Tull's history shows 2800 shows but includes shows done before they were Tull and is based on some peoples' memories. It also includes playing bars as a blues band. This is stretching the concert legacy a bit. It also includes all of Ian's solo concerts over the years which again isn't Tull. A quick glance puts them somewhere around Maiden's concert numbers but the ticket sales are not even close. When there are cries for them to be in the HOF, this is one of the reasons that I don't think they deserve it. (Not every band can or should get in) Their record sales are also on the low end for entry. Not that any of that matters, if you love them that is all that matters.

I love Tull and have seen them many times over the years. Most shows were excellent, a couple of sleepers and a couple where Ian's voice was hurting. Ian passed through town a couple of months ago but unfortunately Roger Waters Wall tour was here the same night. A friend told me it was good but a bit boring at times. Just his opinion but he is a veteran of the music industry and I value his opinion.

A friend just scored Tull tickets for four of us today, June 14th at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, about a 2500 seat place, just beautiful. I'm expecting it to be very good. Last time I saw them was 2001 at Konocti Harbor Resort at Clear Lake (N. California). They were excellent! What a Labor Day weekend that was, Tull on Saturday night, Allman Bros on Sunday night. That was the year they had Derek Trucks and Jimmy Herring on guitar. During the day we sailed in my buddy's boat all around the lake.

I've never seen Cheap Trick, so honestly, I wouldn't know. They must be doing something right, to pull off all those shows.

Twisted Sister, 7000 shows? Good lord, that means that Dee Snider has attended 7000 Twisted Sister shows. That's gotta put some stress on a guy.

So, is it indeed Twisted Sister who has played the most gigs of any band, ever?

In regards to Tull, I saw them back in 1973, Passion Play tour, , then again in 1975, they were powerful good. I don't have any comment on the HOF, as their criteria for entry truly baffles me.

dee snider was not the original twisted sister singer. he joined 2-3 years after the band started. not sure if they count all of those shows before he was there. also like i said they use to play at the same club 2 or even 3 different times in a single night. they would play for 1 hour take a 1 hour break and then play again for close to 2 more hours sometimes even taking another break and then playing again for 2 hours. does that count as 3 different shows? maybe if tickets had to be purchased for each show then i guess it does. imagine playing 1 night from 7pm-8pm and then 10pm-midnight and then 1am-2:30am. that was basically there schedule every friday and saturday in the new york area from 1976-1982

If you start counting playing clubs then this would get silly. For all I know then maybe I have played more.

If we count garage and basement concerts then who knows who would be in the lead?

There is a tiny club here where two guys sing with acoustic guitars 6 nights a week. (one of them owns the place) Since I moved here then they would have played 4000 shows and they were here before me. Could be 10000 fopr all I know.

No they just count one. Maiden has clubs dates listed in the totals from the list mentioned here on Wiki. But starting just prior to the first album, they played many more bars than shown there.

Twisted always goes for hype as that is what Dee knows. He is a mini Gene. Has always known how to play the game. same with the Nuge. Hell Nugent once claimed to have played more than 365 concerts in a year. I don't believe a word of it but it sounds funny listening to this madman ramble about it. Again he knows hype and how to play the game.
