Ian Anderson Tour Announced 2014

Ian Anderson announces a new tour for 2014

Legendary Prog Rock icon Ian Anderson announces new 22 date UK tour for 2014.  Ian is releasing a new concept album which will be recorded early next year and released around Easter 2014.

Anderson will be touring throughout 2014, starting in the UK late April; the show will feature a selection from his new 2014-release concept album - which he defines as ‘Folk-Prog-Metal’ - in its more theatrical setting, together with a selection of Jethro Tull highlights. The upcoming record release will feature heavier, less acoustic guitar sounds and more of Anderson’s trademark flute.

He says "After winning the Grammy for best "Hard Rock/Metal” album back in 1988, this seems like an opportunity to justify that strange and misplaced accolade with a new album to celebrate the more forceful, full-on rock credentials which are found in many of my songs over the last 45 years. It's not an end to the acoustic and gentler moments but more of an emphasis on the louder aggressive flute style which marked me out from the earliest days of Jethro Tull.”

Following the great success of his current ‘Thick As A Brick’ tour – including a one-off performance at the iconic Royal Albert Hall – tickets for the 2014 shows will go on sale on 4th September at 9.00am.  However Planet Rock will be running a 48 pre-sale starting 2nd September at 9am.
