Jethro Tull To Play 50th Anniversary UK Tour

Tuesday, 15 August 2017 Written by Huw Baines

Jethro Tull will play a 50th anniversary tour next spring.

Ian Anderson and band (plus “surprise virtual guests”) will call in Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Bristol, Birmingham and Cambridge before heading to the Royal Albert Hall in London. Tickets are on sale at 9am on August 31.

Discussing the tour, for which he will be joined by bassist David Goodier, John O'Hara on keyboards, guitarist Florian Opahle and drummer Scott Hammond, Anderson said in a statement:

“I am not usually a birthday or anniversary kind of guy but, just for once, I won’t be a party-pooper either! I treasure the memories of the earlier years of Jethro Tull repertoire, associated as it is with the adventures of visiting so many countries for the first time to connect with new fans around the world.

“And this is a celebration of all the 33 band members who graced our ranks – musicians who brought their talents, skills and styles to bear on the performances live and in the studio. Join me and the current band for a nostalgic evening of varied music, representative of my ever-changing songwriting as our careers progressed through the years.”
