Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson has added 2018 North American dates to the band's 50th Anniversary Tour, which will commemorate the original release of Jethro Tull's 1968 debut LP This Was.
The new performances are slated to begin on May 30 in Arizona and extend into mid-September. These shows are in addition to Jethro Tull's scheduled concerts in Europe and the UK from December to April of next year.
The current Jethro Tull lineup includes Ian Anderson, John O'Hara, David Goodier, Florian Opahle, and Scott Hammond. On the band's website, Anderson describes the tour as a "celebration of all the 33 band members who graced our ranks – musicians who brought their talents, skills and styles to bear on the performances live and in the studio."
