Jethro Tull to Perform ‘Aqualung’ Album in Its Entirety on Summer Tour

In the eyes of metal fans, Jethro Tull may never live down beating Metallica‘s ‘…And Justice For All’ for the Best Metal/Hard Rock Performance Grammy in 1989 with ‘Crest of a Knave.’ Twenty-one-year-old Grammy drama aside, the Tull will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their essential ‘Aqualung’ album by performing it in its entirety on their upcoming summer tour. The band will also play other classics from its 30-album catalog to round out each night’s set.

The touring line-up features longtime members Ian Anderson (flute, vocals, acoustic guitar) and Martin Barre (guitars), Doane Perry (drums), as well as David Goodier (bass) and pianist John O’Hara. Goodier and O’Hara joined in 2006 after working with Anderson on some of his solo projects.

In other Ian Anderson news, the singer was recently awarded an honorary Doctorate in Literature from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. That makes him Dr. Anderson to you.
