Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson Releases Solo Album, Announces Fall Tour
Out this week is Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson’s latest solo album, called Homo Erraticus. The new album, which is the followup to 2012’s Thick As A Brick 2, also chronicles the exploits of the fictional pre-pubescent character Gerald Bostock -- who made his first appearance on Tull’s 1972 Thick As A Brick album. Anderson, who's kicking off a UK tour at the end of the month, will embark on a 35-date U.S. tour beginning on September 12th in Seattle, Washington and running through November 10th in Montclair, New Jersey.
 
Anderson revealed to Billboard, that the Jethro Tull "brand" is dead, explaining, "The huge body of work that is the Jethro Tull catalogue stands firm close beside me and in good stead. . . But I think I prefer, in my twilight years, to use my own name for the most part being composer of virtually all Tull songs and music since 1968. . . It's a body of work I rather think is now kind of historical, since the weight of it lies back in the '70s and '80s in terms of volume. And I rather think it's nice to kind of leave that as legacy."
 
Ian Anderson tells us that his concert setlists have always been peppered with the classics everyone loves: "Generally speaking, I suppose we do because there are certain pieces -- most obviously 'Aqualung' and "Locomotive Breath' -- I think feature pretty much in nearly every Jethro Tull concert. And there are a few others that are frequent visitors. We'll often play a bit of 'Thick As A Brick' and the instrumental 'Bouree.' A few frequent travelers."
