Early in 1968, a group of young British musicians, born from the ashes of various failed regional bands gathered together in hunger, destitution and modest optimism in Luton, North of London.

Benefit, Aqualung, and Thick As A Brick followed and the band’s success grew internationally. Various band members came and went, but the charismatic front man and composer, flautist and singer Ian Anderson continued, as he does to this day, to lead the group through its various musical incarnations.

Jethro Tull were, by the mid-seventies, one of the most successful live performing acts on the world stage, rivalling Zeppelin, Elton John and even the Rolling Stones. Surprising, really, for a group whose more sophisticated and evolved stylistic extravagance was far from the Pop and Rock norm of that era.

With now some 30-odd albums to his credit and sales totalling more than 60 million, the apparently uncommercial Ian Anderson, continues to travel near and far to fans across the world.

Ian brings with him to New Zealand, his band of musicians featuring David Goodier on bass guitar, John O'Hara on keyboards, Florian Opahle on electric guitar, Scott Hammond on drums and Ryan O'Donnell on accompanying vocals.

He will perform a selection from the very best Jethro Tull songs plus some songs from his new album Homo Erraticus. Expect classics like, extended plays of Thick as a Brick,Aqualung, Locomotive Breath, Bouree, Living in the Past and much more.
