Fans that can’t make it to one of Jethro Tull’s summer concert dates can still get their fill of live action from the iconic band from the comfort of their own living rooms!
It was announced earlier this week that a four-DVD/book set entitled Around the World Live will be issued on June 25 from Eagle Rock Entertainment. The release will feature footage of some of Jethro Tull’s most famous concert moments, spanning from their Isle of Wight performance in 1970 all the way up to their show at Lugano, Switzerland’s Estival in 2005.
Around the World Live, packaged as a hardback book with two discs inserted in each inside each cover, will also include a ton of previously unreleased material, including an exclusive interview with Ian Anderson and photos from his personal archive, text on all of the featured shows by Joel McIver, and live performances of hits such as “Aqualung,” “Cross-eyed Mary,” “Living In The Past,” “Thick As A Brick,” “Nothing Is Easy,” and more!
Pre-orders for the set are being accepted as early as Friday, May 31, for a retail price of $39.98.
