Rockers Jethro Tull to hit the road

Jethro Tull are to hit the road on a 23-date tour.

The British rockers will perform their "trusty favourites" as well as songs which have never been performed in public before.

Frontman Ian Anderson said: "Of all the music recorded by Jethro Tull over the years, there are several songs which have rarely, if ever, been performed in public - we look forward to introducing some of this material to the setlist in 2010 along with some of the tried and trusty favourites."

The singer said there would be surprises in store for long-standing fans during the shows, which kick-off on March 5 in Northampton.

"Martin Barre and I, along with long-standing drummer Doane Perry and old friends David Goodier and John O'Hara will bring variety and depth to the concerts with the aid of a few forgotten musical instruments currently being dug out of the rusty skip and dusted down for action. I know I put that Sousaphone somewhere safe..." he said.
