The Best of JETHRO TULL Live featuring new album HOMO ERRATICUS
Legendary progressive rock pioneer Ian Anderson will be releasing a new studio album Homo Erraticus this spring. The album continues the story of Anderson's favorite enfant terrible from Thick As A Brick, Gerald Bostock. Ian and his band (guitarist Florian Opahle, bassist David Goodier, keyboardist John O'Hara and drummer Scott Hammond) will stop at DPAC Saturday, October 4, as part of this new tour where Homo Erraticus will be performed in its entirety followed by a selection of Tull classics updated with video and theatrics.
Ian Anderson recently won The Prog God Award from Prog Magazine, celebrating the innovators of rock who have inspired generations and carved a way for others to be at their creative best. There is no one who has pushed the boundaries more than Ian Anderson, who to this day remains immersed in his love for the music.
Fronting seminal prog outfit Jethro Tull and performing simply under his own name, Ian Anderson has performed in more than 54 countries over 45 years; he is widely considered an icon of the genre and is recognized as the protagonist of the flute in rock music. With over 60 million albums sold in its career, Tull has been characterized by Anderson’s trademark acoustic textures created with ethnic flutes and whistles together with acoustic guitar and the mandolin family of instruments.
