27.04.18  20:00 Jethro Tull by Ian Anderson (UK)
It was on the 2nd of February 1968 at the world-famous Marquee Club in Wardour Street that Jethro Tull first performed under that name. The group would go on to become one of the most successful and enduring bands of their era, selling over 60 million albums worldwide and entering the cultural collective consciousness along the way. To celebrate this golden anniversary, Ian Anderson will present 50 years of Jethro Tull in 50th Anniversary Tour. The debut album, This Was, was released later that same year. Founder, frontman and flautist, Ian Anderson, is rightly credited with introducing the flute to rock as a front line instrument, not to mention the codpiece! Jethro Tull are one of the biggest selling Progressive Rock artists of all time and their immense and diverse catalogue of work encompasses folk, blues, classical and heavy rock. The anniversary concerts will feature a broad mix of material, some of it focussing on the earlier formative period through to the “heavy hitters” of the Tull catalogue from the albums This Was, Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung, Thick As A Brick, Too Old To Rock And Roll: Too Young To Die, Songs From The Wood, Heavy Horses, Crest Of A Knave and even a touch of TAAB2 from 2012. Anderson is the only founding member involved with this tour. His current lineup includes guitarist Florian Opahle, bassist David Goodier, keyboardist and orchestral conductor John O'Hara and drummer Scott Hammond. Read more

This gift formed the basis of the permanent exhibition "Ludwig Museum in the Russian Museum", opened to the public on 10 March 1995 in the Marble Palace. The founding agreement gave this new institution the special status of a "museum within a museum". Read more
