Jethro Tull Announce 50th Anniversary Tour

On the 2nd of February 1968 at the Marquee Club in Wardour Street, Jethro Tull was born.
The band have gone on to achieve and inspire,  selling 60 million albums worldwide along the way.

To celebrate this 50 year anniversary, founder, front man and flautist Ian Anderson will present '50 years of Jethro Tull' in eight UK concerts during April 2018 as part of the worldwide touring schedule.

Ian is rightly credited with introducing the flute to rock as a front line instrument and says: -

 “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.”
