Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull, one of the world's best known progressive rock bands, have announced their return to the stage with "The Prog Years Tour". The tour will focus primarily on Jethro Tull's most 'prog' albums, especially the early classics Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung, Thick As A Brick, Passion Play and even some cuts from 2012's Thick As A Brick 2.
From their debut, Jethro Tull's leader Ian Anderson creates a fiction character: a troubadour flute player, playing his authentically slanted music on one leg. Jethro Tull retains its unique place in the hearts of progressive music fans, and its albums are the object of that passion.
Ian says, "Dusting off a lot of the old 'progressive' songs from my early attempts to experiment outside of the blues repertoire we started with has been extremely enjoyable. Over the past 50 years, there have been some great songs that still resonate strongly with me today musically or lyrically. Hopefully both. Some are really complicated to play, others might seem difficult but ultimately slip through the fingers, although the arrangements in general require feats of memory! Test my skills and join the party!".
