Throughout the band’s history, Cold Flame has performed music by British prog folk rock giants Jethro Tull. Since 1997, the band have presented a full-blown tribute show which has earned Cold Flame the reputation as being one of the leading Jethro Tull tribute acts in the UK and Europe.
The Jethro Tull tribute show as performed by Cold Flame over the last 20 years, has seen the band headline indoor and outdoor shows, rock festivals and blues clubs both across the UK as well as in Italy and Spain and they have been featured on European radio stations as well as on UK local and regional radio. During this time, there has been a strong link with Jethro Tull. Cold Flame have performed with ex Tull members Clive Bunker, Mick Abrahams, the late Glenn Cornick, Paul Burgess, Maartin Allcock and Gerry Conway as well as Tull guest musician – international violinist Anna Phoebe.
Cold Flame has also supported two Jethro Tull off-shoot bands in Blodwyn Pig and Wild Turkey. Cold Flame continue to perform both electric and acoustic Jethro Tull tribute shows in England and look forward to returning to mainland Europe for additional shows in the future. In June 2017 the band will be performing some acoustic Tull tribute shows in France with more dates planned in Italy later in the year.
Material covered in these tribute concerts showcases many of the greatest hits of Jethro Tull highlighting classic rock albums like Aqualung and Thick as a Brick. Additionally, Cold Flame also feature lesser known Tull gems in a two hour plus show full of visual and musical highlights showcasing the creative and individual talents of the 5 piece band.
