Jethro Tull Announce 50th Anniversary Tour 22/8/17


Formed in 1968, Jethro Tull have released 30 studio and live albums, selling more than 60 million copies worldwide. During their 50-year history, the band has performed over 3,000 concerts in more than 50 countries, playing 100+ concerts each year. To celebrate this golden anniversary, Ian Anderson will present 50 years of Jethro Tull in eight UK concerts during April 2018 as part of the worldwide touring schedule. Accompanied by Tull band musicians David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Florian Opahle (guitar), Scott Hammond (drums) and surprise virtual guests, the anniversary concerts will feature a broad mix of material, some of it focussing on the earlier formative period through to the “heavy hitters” of the Tull catalogue from the albums 'This Was', 'Stand Up', 'Benefit', 'Aqualung', 'Thick As A Brick', 'Too Old To Rock And Roll: Too Young To Die', 'Songs From The Wood', 'Heavy Horses', 'Crest Of A Knave' and even a touch of 'TAAB2' from 2012.
