There are not many tickets left for the concert of the legendary Jethro Tull which will be held on the 13th of October in Dom sportova, Zagreb. With this tour they will celebrate 50 years since their debut album "This Was" was first released. The album has its new edition made as 50th anniversary edition and it will be released on the 9th of November. It can also be pre-ordered via band's official website.
The album will have the original album and bonus tracks remixed in stereo by Steven Wilson, live BBS session recorded in 1968, original mono mix and original stereo mix, case bound DVD book filled with an extensive history of the album, track - by - track annotations by Ian Anderson, plus rade and unseen photographs and a lot more.
"This Was" was recorded and released in 1968. It was the only Jethro Tull album to feature guitarist Mick Abrahams who left shortly after. The title of the album refers to the band moving away from its early blues-based sound.
Despite the fact the band changed a lot of members, Ian Anderson is still active in a role of a 'leader'- vocals, flute, compositor. Besides him, the members today are Florian Ophale on the guitar, Scott Hammond on the drums, John O'Hara on the keyboards & David Goodier on the bass. There are also musicians on Anderson's solo projects.
The last Jethro Tull's concert in Zagreb was in 2004 and this could possibly be the last time they will play in Croatia.
