To our fans in Villafranca/Verona

We are so sorry to have been forced to cancel the show last night (27th July) in Villafranca.

The local authorities and police insisted on the cancellation about 2 minutes before we were going on to the stage. We were standing behind the stage, all ready to do our best in the continuing rain and regret this decision taken by others, which we could not change.

I understand from the promoter that there will be full refund to all ticket-holders. My apologies for this sad end to a very wet day. My crew and the local production team worked hard all day to ensure a safe and timely start to the concert only to have all their efforts wasted at the last minute – literally.

Hope to see you all another time, another place. More Italian shows now announced for November including Gran Teatro Geox, Padova.

Hope to see some of you there.

Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull.
