The shows tell the story of the original Jethro Tull's life, reimagined as if in the near future and illustrated with Anderson's best-known songs from the rock band Jethro Tull repertoire.
The performance is in a quasi-operatic structure with virtual guests on video and some additional newly-written songs to round off the elements of the story.
“Heavy Horses,” “Farm On The Freeway,” “Songs From The Wood sit alongside Aqualung,” “Living In The Past,” “Wind-Up,” “A New Day Yesterday,” “The Witch's Promise,” “Locomotive Breath” and other favourites – often with slightly re-written lyrics to better tell the tale.
Accompanied by David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Florian Opahle (guitar), Scott Hammond (drums) and surprise virtual guests, Ian Anderson begins the touring schedule in the UK followed by Russian, European and South American dates before the end of the year.
