Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson

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.

Anderson will be touring throughout 2014, starting in the UK late April; 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.

He says "After winning the Grammy for best "Hard Rock/Metal” album back in 1988, this seems like an opportunity to justify that strange and misplaced accolade with a new album to celebrate the more forceful, full-on rock credentials which are found in many of my songs over the last 45 years. It's not an end to the acoustic and gentler moments but more of an emphasis on the louder aggressive flute style which marked me out from the earliest days of Jethro Tull.”

Following the great success of his current 'Thick As A Brick' tour - including a one-off performance at the iconic Royal Albert Hall - tickets for the 2014 shows are expected to go fast when they go on sale. Get your tickets below!
