Here’s more information on JETHRO TULL by Ian Anderson.

The concerts feature a solid collection of the best-known Tull repertoire from 1968 to date. Fans will recognize the key songs from various albums - songs which put Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson on the map in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s - with most of them accompanied by big screen HD video elements to enhance the concert experience. Favorites include: “Dharma For One” in 1968, “Bourée,” “Nothing Is Easy,” “A New Day Yesterday,” “Living In The Past,” “Aqualung,” “Locomotive Breath,” “My God,” “Aqualung” and on through to “Thick As A Brick” and material from the albums of the next three decades. A couple of recent works round out the concert selection which may vary a little from night to night.

In 2017, JETHRO TULL by Ian Anderson will play in Australia and New Zealand during April with further tours and concerts throughout Europe, USA and South America later in the year. 

Ian is accompanied by Tull members David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Florian Opahle (guitar), Scott Hammond (drums).
