Jethro Tull perform in Portugal on the 18th of February at the Lisbon Coliseum and the following day at the Super Bock Arena – Rosa Mota Pavilion in Porto.
With a discography that spans around two dozen original albums and stretches back to 1968, Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull are a true institution of British rock, having throughout their extensive career played several styles, from blues-rock to fusion jazz, later crossing folk, heavy and even classical music to create their own vision of what became known as progressive rock or symphonic rock, a current of which they are one of the exponents.
The group currently consisting of leader Ian Anderson and musicians such as bassist David Goodier, keyboardist John O’Hara, drummer Scott Hammond and guitarist Joe Parrish is still active and has even planned to release a new album for 2022, The Zealot Gene. A dozen live works also underscore the fact that Jethro Tull have always been an acclaimed force on the stage, a fact that earned them bows from many of their peers, from Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden to Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam or even Nick Cave.
With several critical and bestselling hits such as the classics Thick as a Brick, A Passion Play or War Child and Songs From The Wood, Jethro Tull have forged a unique identity that has marked generations. And now they are preparing to return to Portugal, 20 years after a memorable visit to the then Pavilhão Atlântico.
The return of Jethro Tull is scheduled for February 18, 2022 on Lisbon Coliseum and February 19th at Super Bock Arena – Rosa Mota Pavilion in Port. Tickets cost between €40 and €100 and are already on sale in the usual places.
