Ian Anderson, along with his band, is coming to Iceland this summer where he will perform his masterpiece, Thick as a Brick, in its entirety in the main hall of Harpa, Eldborg, on Thursday the 21st of June. Ticket sales start in Harpa and on midi.is on the 2nd of February at 12:00 pm.
Jethro tull/Ian Anderson, the leader of the band, have performed in concerts a few times in Iceland, the latest being in 2009, where the tickets were sold out in less than a day.
Thick as a Brick increased Jethro Tull’s popularity greatly and the album reached first place of the American Bilboard list. Jethro Tull hasn’t performed Thick as a Brick in it's entirety on stage since 1972.
The show will feature a more theatrical production with video, additional musicians and a troupe of dancing elephants. (Just kidding about the dancing elephants: they don't dance.,...)
Since 1972, the album has never been performed in its entirety although a few minutes of the material have been a regular repertoire staple in both Tull and IA solo shows over the years.
Now, scheduled for performance again in 2012, Ian will take the original album to Reykjavik's new Musical venue, Harpa. It will be performed in its entirety in a theatrical setting with band, and additional guests.
