It was in the early '90's, & I'm not sure of the line up, but they were great. I've heard of the legendary Tull/Heap tour. Wasn't that the year Tull released Bursting out?

Yessir, it was indeed. It was also the first time I saw Tull. I saw them a total of five times over the years, and enjoyed all the shows from the 70's-80's but when I saw them in 2001 Ian's voice was pretty weak, but Martin's guitar and Ian's flute are still as strong as ever.

I have not been to many shows. None since 93'.
I have seen Sabbath twice,Van Halen, Blue Oyster Cult , Black Oak Arkansas, Metal Church Twice, Trouble , Detective ,Kiss twice , Uriah Heep in 77' ,Exodus , Accept ,Priest twice , Anthrax ,Helloween , Skinny Puppy. Lots of unknown obscure local punk/metal Chicago area bands in the late 80s early 90s.
I used to be a Rebel. Now I'm just a middle class monster loving hermit that cranks 90s death metal pulling into my driveway after work. Gives the neighbors something to think about.
