“Ian Anderson Presents Jethro Tull’s 50th Anniversary Tour” at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino
Ian Anderson is known throughout the world of rock music as the flute and voice behind the legendary band Jethro Tull, and he’s celebrating his 50th year as an international recording and performing musician with a tour stop at The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Friday, July 5, 2019.
It was on the 2nd of February 1968 at the world-famous Marquee Club in London that Jethro Tull first performed under that name. The group would go on to become one of the most successful and enduring bands of their era, selling over 60 million albums worldwide and entering the cultural collective consciousness along the way, playing their first concerts in North America in November and December 1969. Founder, frontman and flautist Ian Anderson is rightly credited with introducing the flute to rock as a front line instrument.
Jethro Tull is one of the biggest selling Progressive Rock artists of all time, and the group’s immense and diverse catalogue of work encompasses folk, blues, classical and heavy rock. The anniversary concerts will feature a broad mix of material, some of it focusing on the earlier formative period through to the “heavy hitters” of the Tull catalogue from the albums: This Was, Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung, Thick As A Brick, Too Old To Rock And Roll: Too Young To Die, Songs From The Wood, Heavy Horses, Crest Of A Knave and even a touch of TAAB2 from 2012.
Anderson says, “We continue to present the 50th Anniversary concerts in many countries and regions not visited in 2018, and also many Tull repertoire shows in Europe. In the USA, many would argue, 2019 is really the 50th Anniversary for US fans since we first visited in early 1969.”
The undisputed king of rock and roll flute, Ian Anderson looks forward to bringing Jethro Tull’s 50th Anniversary Tour to Fantasy Springs in July.
Tickets for the 8pm Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull performance on Friday, July 5, 2019 go on sale Friday, December 14th for $129, $99, $79 and $59 at the
