Legendary progressive rocker Ian Anderson is widely considered an icon of the genre and is recognized as the protagonist of the flute in rock music. As a solo artist and with the band Jethro Tull, Anderson has performed in more than 54 countries over 45 years, selling more than 60 million albums. Anderson's new album, Homo Erraticus, will be performed in its entirety followed by a selection of Jethro Tull classics updated with video and theatrics. Anderson will perform with guitarist Florian Opahle, bassist David Goodier, keyboardist John O'Hara, drummer Scott Hammond and backing vocalist/actor Ryan O'Donnell. Anderson recently won The Prog God Award from Prog Magazine, celebrating the innovators of rock who have inspired generations and carved a way for others to be at their creative best. No one has pushed the boundaries more than Ian Anderson, who to this day remains immersed in his love for the music.
