Calliandra Productions presents
Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull band are one of the world's most successful and enduring progressive rock bands. At the beginning of February 1968 Jethro Tull first appeared under that name at the famous Marquee Club in Wardour Street, London. They recorded with their original lineup of Anderson, Cornick, Bunker and Abrahams and released their first album This Was
on the Island label later that year. After the departure of Mick Abrahams and his replacement by Martin Barre, another thirty or so musicians would form the ranks over the decades, some staying for a few months; some for the longer haul.
Although Ian Anderson uses his own real name these days in conjunction with the Tull performances and repertoire, the Jethro Tull brand has endured to this day and as writer, producer, flautist, vocalist and occasional guitarist, Anderson performs with the band typically 80 – 100 shows each year in many countries of the world.
This tour will draw heavily on material from the more "prog" albums, some of it focusing on the earlier formative period through to the heavy hitters of the Tull catalogue from the albums Stand Up
, Thick As A Brick
, Passion Play
and even a touch of TAAB2
Ian Anderson will be accompanied by Tull band musicians David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Joe Parrish (guitar) and Scott Hammond (drums). The show will be enhanced by full scale video projection.
