I grew up with a father who was a HUGE Jethro Tull fan, and this November the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts will host Jethro Tull by Ian Anderson in the art center’s Walt Disney Theater on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 8 pm.
The anticipated concert will feature a solid collection of the best-known Tull repertoire from 1968 to date. Fans will recognize key songs from various albums – songs which put Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson on the map in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Many of the songs will be accompanied by big screen HD video elements to enhance the concert experience. Favorites include, “Dharma for One” in 1968, “Bourée,” “Nothing is Easy,” “A New Day Yesterday,” “Living in the Past,” “Aqualung,” “Locomotive Breath,” “My God,” all through “Thick as a Brick” and material from albums of the following three decades. A few recent works round out the concert selection which will vary each performance.
Anderson is accompanied by Tull members David Goodier (bass), John O’Hara (keyboards), Florian Ophale (guitar), and Scott Hammond (drums).
Jethro Tull by Ian Anderson will play in Australia and New Zealand in April of this year, with further dates throughout Europe, South America and the United States, including the Orlando date, later this year.
