Ian Anderson presents Jethro Tull [link] | Capitol Theatre, Port Chester
Ian Anderson, known throughout the world as the flute and voice behind the legendary Jethro Tull will be performing JETHRO TULL, The Rock Opera. Celebrating the life and times of the English agricultural inventor, the concerts 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.
