First 2018 Jethro Tull Christmas concert announced!
Ian Anderson will present the Christmas Jethro Tull at Chester Cathedral on 1st December. Tickets are on sale 3rd April.
“Whether your Christmas is a secular affair of gift-giving and family togetherness or a more wonderful recognition of one of the two biggest days in Christian calendar, join us for some uplifting Christmas spirit, music, readings and maybe even a prayer or two.
The bringing together of people of all backgrounds, cultures and faiths in this way is possible, perhaps, only under the auspices of modern Christianity, especially the Anglican Church. So, if we can help to draw people in to these beautiful and historic building to savour just a little of the spirit of Christmas, it seems like a worth while effort” – Ian Anderson
Anderson and his band plus the odd surprise guest and the Nave Choir will perform some of the more festive numbers, old and new, from the prodiguos Jethro Tull back catalogue, combining Christmas tradition with a rather more unusual repertoire for a cathedral setting.
