Piotr J. Olszewski of the Melbourne concert said,
"Ian Anderson must be seen to be believed. During the first half-hour of their concert, Jethro Tull played some of the best live music that I have experienced. The first song was an entire concert in itself. There was so much happening both musically and visually. I didn’t imagine “Thick As A Brick” could be presented live with so much success. The sound was beautiful. On the end of the first side of the 'Thick' album there’s a series of clunky notes that separate beautifully on a good stereo -– and that same effect in Melbourne’s Festival Hall of all places. And then on Side 2 comes across as very eerie and vampiry -– well, in Festival Hall this part of the concert was wonderfully executed."
