Posted on 06/24/2014 7:59:50 PM PDT by InvisibleChurch
Join the Global Campaign against IEDs on Sunday, October 5, 2014 for a special night with Ian Anderson to honor our veterans, first responders, and to raise awareness of the global threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).
All proceeds from the concert go to support programs helping our heroes and responding to the threat from IEDs.
There will be a pre-show VIP reception, special guests, and other events honoring our heroes. You can even snap a photo with the man himself after watching the show from your private backstage box if you enter and win The Ultimate Fan Experience with Ian Anderson!
You can also attend a special Dinner in the Dark to honor war blinded veterans on October 4, 2014 in Richmond. For special advanced reservations for the show and all related events and to enter the Ultimate Fan contest, follow this link (www.CampaignAgainstIEDs.org/Tull) even if you cant attend the show, please consider donating to support this worthy cause.
We dont always ask our leaders to take us into war, but we all seek to help bring democratic freedoms and human rights especially for women and children to troubled nations throughout the world. On behalf of the brave young men and women of our troops abroad, I urge you to support the victims of IED madness, now in need of rehabilitation and care. For them and their families, please support the Global Campaign against IEDs. Ian Anderson

He’s a bit of a Lefty, but he’s quite a fellow. Not at all a typical rocker.
Brilliant flutist/flautist and one heck of a showman! Aqualung was my favorite song and album way back when.
I believe that “Aqualung” was written by Ian Anderson’s wife. Yep, good stuff. I always liked “Thick as a Brick”, and “Too Old to Rock and Roll, Too Young to Die”. Oh, and “Locomotive Breath”.
TAAB is, hands down, the BEST progressive rock album ever!
IMHO, of course...
One of favorite bands ever. I’ve been a Jethro Tull fan since I was about seven years old.
My buddy Dave M drummer with Tull for a time .
Good for him and the heroes. One of my fav bands ever - musical talent is tight and hard to match.
Not typical at all. A true minstrel of the 20th-21st centuries IMO.
The Christmas album is a must-hear. As you say: “A true minstrel”...
Every year I load the CD changer up with that and TSO and play them until the new year. (IMO TSO > Mannheim)
Dave Mattacks? Does he still drum for Fairport?
DM left the UK & moved to Marblehead , MA in 2000 . He continues to enjoy a full career in music spanning live & studio work, both as a musician & producer. Keeping very busy .
