Jethro Tull - The Rock Opera
Ian Anderson celebrates the life and times of the English Agricultural inventor, Jethro Tull, with the announcement of a new series of concert tours beginning September 2015.
The shows tell the story of the original Jethro Tull’s life, re-imagined as if in the near future and illustrated with Anderson’s best-known songs from the rock band Jethro Tull’s repertoire.
The performance is in a quasi-operatic structure with virtual guests on video and some additional newly-written songs to round off the elements of the story. Heavy Horses, Farm On The Freeway, Songs From The Wood sit alongside Aqualung, Living In The Past, Wind-Up, A New Day Yesterday, The Witch’s Promise, Locomotive Breath and other favorites – often with slightly re-written lyrics to better tell the tale.
