Ian Anderson has announced a 2015 UK tour, titled Jethro Tull – The Rock Opera.
Honouring the 18th Century English agriculturalist, after which the band was named back in 1968, the shows tell the story of the original Jethro Tull's life, re-imagined as if in the near future and illustrated through the band's repertoire.
The set list will include Wind Up, Heavy Horses, Aqualung, Back to the Family, Farm on the Freeway and Songs from the Wood, with some revised lyrics and five newly written songs also added to the mix.
Performing with Anderson will be David Goodier on bass, John O’Hara on keyboards, Florian Opahle on guitar, Scott Hammond on drums plus some ‘virtual guests’ on a big video screen.
Tickets for the shows are on sale at 9am on March 9, priced at £28.00 (£27.50 in Birmingham), plus fees.

Quizz Kid: Well, we tried to spread the love and the word, build bridges, but when you get booted and blocked by twats for no reason it's a bit like the trash taking itself out for collection, good riddance to bad rubbish.
