In March 1972, Jethro Tull performed three shows in the Royal Albert Hall to critical acclaim. Now, some 41 years later, Ian Anderson brings his band back to play both Thick as a Brick 1 and the 2012 follow-up album, Thick as a Brick 2 .
In 1972, Ian Anderson wrote and recorded the Jethro Tull progressive rock classic album Thick As A Brick . The lyrics were credited at the time to the fictitious child character, Gerald Bostock, whose parents supposedly lied about his age. The record instantly became a number one Billboard Chart album and enjoyed considerable success around the world.
Forty-odd years on, Thick as a Brick 2 examines the possible different paths that the precocious young schoolboy might have taken later in life through alter-ego characters with song-section identities illustrating the hugely varied potential twists and turns of fate and opportunity.
To coincide with this groundbreaking release, Anderson and fellow musicians John O'Hara (keyboards), David Goodier (bass), Florian Opahle (guitar) and Scott Hammond (drums), as well as some guest performers, will perform both Thick As A Brick albums in their entirety.
