Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson in Istanbul
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsIan Anderson, the front man of the British folk rock band Jethro Tull, a group famous for its flute-infused music, will perform in Istanbul at Küçükçiflik Park on Sept. 10. The show is part of Anderson’s world tour for his latest album, “Thick as a Brick 2: Whatever Happened to Gerald Bostock?” The singer-flutist will be supported by the band he toured with in 2012 under the name Martin Barre’s New Day, which includes Jethro Tull’s bassist, Jonathan Noyce. The group plans to play the new album in its entirety for fans.
Earlier this year, Anderson had announced via the Jethro Tull website that a follow-up album to the band’s popular “Thick as a Brick” album would be released on April 2, 2012. “Thick as a Brick 2: Whatever Happened to Gerald Bostock?” has been billed as a solo project from Anderson rather than a Jethro Tull release. An 18-month world tour has been planned to promote both albums.
