Led by singer-flautist Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull’s 50th anniversary tour will stretch into their 51st year, as the classic rock mainstays will play additional gigs from coast to coast.
Anderson will be joined by David Goodier (bass), John O’Hara (keyboards), Florian Opahle (guitar), Scott Hammond (drums) and “surprise virtual guests.”
And while the band formed in 1968, Anderson argues this stretch of shows in the US is yet another golden anniversary. “We continue to present the 50th Anniversary concerts in many countries and regions not visited in 2018,” he says. “…In the USA – many would argue – 2019 is really the 50th Anniversary for US fans since we first visited in early 1969.”
Tickets for Jethro Tull’s new American tour dates will go on sale Friday, Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. local time.
