Jethro Tull Flutist Ian Anderson to Tour in 2014
Date Posted: 20/08/13
Rock's most famous flutist - Ian Anderson - has announced plans for a major UK tour in 2014.
The Jethro Tull legend, who is currently working on a new album, will visit more than 20 towns and cities across Britain during April and May next year.
Scottish singer-songwriter Anderson, 66, rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s as his band became a leading draw on the prog rock scene.
Over the past five decades, Jethro Tull have sold more than 60 million albums, gaining legions of fans around the world.
And in his upcoming tour, Anderson has promised to perform many of the band's best-known hits, alongside material from his new concept album.
He says the tour will see more of an emphasis on "the louder aggressive flute style" which marked him out in the earliest days of Jethro Tull.
Anderson begins his tour in Brighton on April 24th 2014, and concludes with two dates at London's O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on May 24th and 25th.
