Ian Anderson and the band Jethro Tull are one of the most successful and enduring progressive rock bands in the world. In early February 1968, Jethro Tull first appeared under this name at the famous Marquee Club in Wardour Street, London.
The band quickly built a following there and in the many other small blues clubs and pubs throughout England and gained widespread media and public recognition at the Sunbury Jazz and Blues Festival in the summer of 1968, where they were the surprise hit of the event.
Tull recorded with the original lineup - consisting of Anderson, Cornick, Bunker and Abrahams - and released their first album, "This Was," later that year. After the departure of Mick Abrahams and his replacement by Martin Barre, about thirty other musicians changed over the decades, some of them staying for a few months, others for the longer time. Although Ian Anderson now uses his own name in connection with Tull performances and repertoire, the Jethro Tull brand endures to this day. As a writer, producer, flautist, singer and occasional guitarist, Anderson typically performs with the band in 80-100 shows each year in many countries around the world.
Ian Anderson is joined by Tull band musicians David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Joe Parrish (guitar) and Scott Hammond (drums). The show will be complemented by a large-scale video projection.
