Ian Anderson will perform a multimedia rock concert, Jethro Tull, at Artpark's "Tuesdays in the Park" concert series in Lewiston. The show begins at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 22 at 450 S. Fourth Street. Gates open at 4:45 p.m.
Tickets are $12 advance general admission ($17 week of show Sunday-Tuesday), or $27 front-of-stage pit. This is a standing-room-only show.
The venue phone is 1-888-223-6000, and the website is artpark.net.
The concert will feature a solid collection of the best-known Jethro Tull repertoire from 1968 to date. Fans will recognize the key songs from various albums - songs that put Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson on the map in the late '60s and early '70s - with most of them accompanied by big-screen HD video elements to enhance the concert experience. Favorites include: "Dharma For One" in 1968, "BourĂ©e," "Nothing Is Easy," "A New Day Yesterday," "Living In The Past," "Aqualung," "Locomotive Breath," "My God" and on through to "Thick As A Brick" and material from the albums of the next three decades. A couple of recent works round out the concert selection, which may vary a little from night to night. 
Anderson is accompanied by Jethro Tull members David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Florian Opahle (guitar) and Scott Hammond (drums). 
Jethro Tull by Ian Anderson played Australia and New Zealand in April. There will be more tours and concerts throughout Europe, the U.S. and South America to come later in the year. 
Now in stores and all online digital sites is "The String Quartets," the new album by Anderson and The Carducci String Quartet. The album hit the coveted No. 1 spot on Billboard's classical charts. "The String Quartets" features the classic songs of Jethro Tull, arranged and orchestrated by O'Hara. Anderson plays flute on most of the tracks and even sings a few lines here and there to provide his trademark sounds in the context of classical music traditions.
The album is available in the U.S. via The End Records/BMG.
