Jethro Tull

Cult British rock band Jethro Tull, led by vocalist Ian Anderson, are coming to Croatia on their 50th anniversary World Tour.

Jethro Tull, who formed back in 1967 in Blackpool, England, will be performing at Zagreb’s Dom Sportova on 13 October 2018.

The group first achieved commercial success in 1969, with the folk-tinged blues album Stand Up, which reached No. 1 in the UK, and they toured regularly in the UK and the US. Their musical style shifted in the direction of progressive rock with the albums Aqualung (1971), Thick as a Brick (1972) and A Passion Play (1973), and shifted again to hard rock mixed with folk rock with Songs from the Wood (1977) and Heavy Horses (1978).
