Tull’s Ian Anderson Announces Solo Acoustic Tour
But don’t hold your breath – it’s not until September 2011.
Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson will embark upon a 13-date acoustic tour of the UK in September 2011.
Anderson says: “I have always wanted to go out in the UK with a small line-up, to play and to restructure the songs and music for a more intimate and personalised performance. After many years of performing in this way for radio broadcasts in the USA, it seems like fun to bring this approach to the UK fans, old and new, and to make them feel like they are in my living room for an impromptu family concert.”
Joining Anderson on the road will be German guitar virtuoso Florian Opahle and pianist/accordionist/percussionist John O’Hara.
The trio will play acoustic verstions of Tull classics, alongside rare and less well-known songs and other re-arranged Tull material. New songs are also promised.
