SHOW INFO:

Jethro Tull - The Prog Years

  • Tuesday 13th October 2020
  • Box Office: 6:30pm / Doors: 7:00pm / Show: 7:30pm 

OVERVIEW:

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. Quickly building a following there and at the many other small Blues clubs and pub venues up and down England, the band came to broader media and public recognition at the Sunbury Jazz and Blues Festival in the summer of 1968 where they were the surprise hit of the occasion.
 
Tull recorded with the 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 focussing on the earlier formative period through to the “heavy hitters” of the Tull catalogue from the albums Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung, Thick As A Brick, Passion Play and even a touch of TAAB2 from 2012.
 
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.
