Jethro Tull’s 2008 Tour Plans

2 33

One of my favorite classic acts from way back, Jethro Tull, have revealed their plans for touring this year. Plans to visit the U.S. appear to be a bit incomplete at the moment but more information is expected to come at some time in the future.

image In a cleverly-written missive on the group’s web site, lead man Ian Anderson informs fans that the band will perform two shows in Russia and one in the Ukraine next month and then resume touring on April 6 in the U.K. and work their home country through May before heading out to Germany, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.

Fans here in the U.S. will get a chance starting in August when they have dates scheduled in Connecticut and Colorado with more dates to be announced later.

This year’s shows will be focused on Jethro Tull’s first three albums and fans can expect to hear things like "Serenade To A Cuckoo," "My Sunday Feeling," "Living In The Past," "Bouree" and "A new Day Yesterday."

Anderson said there will also be "a few bits and pieces from a little later," which should give fans a nice variety of music through the band’s long history.

    I love Tull but lately they have been dwelling too much on the very old stuff. How about spending more time on the 1976-1988 era which covered their biggest fame.

    I am driving across country (USA) to Red Rocks in August…and while LP’s material from 1,2 & 3 will be freshened up and splendid…I also want to hear some 76-88 material…The European set list teases us with 4-5 tunes as the show concludes..I hope for some deviation on the US TOUR..Love to hear cuts from Songs From The Woods— Under Wraps–MInstrel—..Excited none the less….driving 1400 miles and it may be my last time to see them…I am sure Ian will make me smile and remember when….
