Jethro Tull is Creating a Rock Opera About Jethro Tull! [VIDEO]
Ian Anderson from the band Jethro Tull, is taking on a very cool project by doing a rock opera based on the person they are named after. Jethro Tull was a 17th century agriculturist and inventor, read more about him here.
We'll here classics like "Aqualung" and "Locomotive Breath," along with new stuff, and we may here some older music re-worked to fit the story a bit better. Ian Anderson will start touring with the show this fall.
In the spirit of Two For Tuesday, here are two Tull videos to hold you over.
The rock opera sounds very high-concept. It will be quasi-operatic with virtual guests on video and it's supposed to be reimagined as if it was taking place in the near future.
Trippy. I think I'll like it.
