The conceit/expenses of the Works tour (toting around feeding and housing the orchestra instead of just hiring the local folks?) and divorce took all his money and he ended up sleeping on couches.

My hero had had many rough periods and was forced to hide a background keyboardist at shows since he couldn't play the parts himself any more. Note in the videos that he keeps his 4th-5th fingers curled since he'd had to have some ulnar nerve surgery.  But, he'd teamed up with Marc Bonilla, who seemed to energize his last years.
 
They had second billing at August Jam to the Allman Brothers but as I said they stole the show. They played deep into the night and had fireworks at the end. I was sitting on top of the grandstands and with every flash it looked like a war zone with bodies strewn everywhere in the infield. It was a scene I'll never forget.

We head over, not sure what to do next. There’s music coming from the lounge, live band.
As we walk up, the drum solo starts. People start shoving to get in, pushing me and this other guy out of the way: Carl Palmer. After he sits, we take a table behind him and, eventually, I hand him my ticket stub. He graciously signed it, and it’s up on my wall with a lot of my other stubs from shows. But I always love the idea that they shoved Carl out of the way to see if the guy on stage was Carl Palmer. Heh.

Tull was the first "Major" concert that I saw in the Old Boston Garden. The Stormwatch tour. Ian came swinging out of the ships rigging on a rope with a sword like a Swashbuckler to open the show. A concert moment I will never forget. 

My first concert of theirs was the Songs-From-The-Wood tour in Cologne. I was already hooked up to their music before that, buying any of their albums I could get my hands on. To me it seems their folkish tunes, ranging from Celtic to Classical music were what hit me hardest, and most unforgettably. Can't remember how many times I've seen them live. At 18 I listened to all their albums almost exclusively. Their was nothing else to compare when it came to music for me at the time.

As this is my personal memory-glory of my early youth, I have to say that Genesis (with Peter Gabriel) and Peter Gabriel's solo projects, as well as Pink Floyd and Yes came close back then, but "only" close! I remember when we used to party as high school kids, 16-17 yrs. old and their 70's live album "Bursting Out" was on, while most of us had been to their concerts. What a great time!

Even today, I can listen to their earlier tunes for many hours on end.

It doesn't seem to go away, ever...

Didn't know this came out as a remaster in 2013.  I've been using this track for blasting w/ real stereo gear (and likely annoying the neighbours) for decades now.  The whole album is utterly phenomenal.
