Following a sold out tour two years ago, legendary rockers Jethro Tull return to Windsor on Sunday, Aug. 20, with their Very Best Of Jethro Tull concert tour of 2017. Tickets go on sale March 10.
The concerts is billed as the very best of, featuring hits including Thick As A Brick, Living In The Past, Aqualung, Locomotive Breath, Bouree and more. The Windsor show is part of a busy year of touring and a new album by the 60-million album selling Grammy Award-winning rockers.
Early in 1968, a group of young British musicians, born from the ashes of various failed regional bands gathered together in hunger, destitution and modest optimism in Luton, North of London.
Benefit, Aqualung, and Thick As A Brick followed and the band’s success grew internationally. Various band members came and went, but the charismatic front man and composer, flautist and singer Ian Anderson continued, as he does to this day, to lead the group through its various musical incarnations.
Jethro Tull were, by the mid-seventies, one of the most successful live performing acts on the world stage, rivaling Zeppelin, Elton John and even the Rolling Stones. Surprising, really, for a group whose more sophisticated and evolved stylistic extravagance was far from the Pop and Rock norm of that era.
Tickets range from $45.20 to $96.05 with Platiunum Seating as high as $195. www.caesars.com/caesars-windsor
