IAN ANDERSON (JETHRO TULL) - The Lowry, Salford, 14 September 2015

Ian Anderson celebrates 50 years since Jethro Tull graced the stage at the world-famous Marquee club in February 1968.

50 years of Jethro Tull will be presented in eight UK concerts during April 2018 as part of the worldwide touring schedule.

The tour will reinforce Jethro Tull’s credentials as one of the most popular and durable progressive rock acts of all time.  The anniversary concerts will feature a broad mix of material, some of it focussing on the earlier formative period through to albums such as  Crest Of A Knave and even TAAB2 from 2012.

Anderson 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.”

On Sunday 3 September Ian chats to Get Ready to ROCK!’s Pete Feenstra about the 50 year anniversary.  (20:00 GMT)

This hour special is repeated Monday 4 September, 16:00 and Thursday 7 September, 23:00
