Never miss another 'Ian Anderson' show
Legendary Prog Rock icon Ian Anderson has announced a 2014 UK tour, following the release of his new concept album to be recorded early next year and released around Easter.
The show will feature a selection from his new 2014-release concept album - which he defines as 'Folk-Prog-Metal' - in its more theatrical setting, together with a selection of Jethro Tull highlights. The upcoming record release will feature heavier, less acoustic guitar sounds and more of Anderson's trademark flute.
Ian Anderson will be onstage at 7.30pm. There is no support.
Anderson will also be recognised as one of the foremost influencers of rock at the 2013 Progressive Music Awards, by being honoured with the Prog God Award.
Singer, flautist, composer and the mainstay of classic rock band Jethro Tull, Ian is one of the more out-spoken of rock's creative forces. As the self-professed 'unplugged guy with a bunch of noisy friends' Ian Anderson commands much respect as an acoustic musician amongst his peers. The only original member of Jethro Tull, Ian remains synonymous with the brand identity. Drawing on Folk, Classical, Rock and Jazz music styles, Ian continues to blend elements of many world music cultures to delight his fans.
