Default Re: Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) in Melbourne 13Apr2017

Melbourne's "Jethro Tull by Ian Anderson" concert was OK, but even overlooking Ian's long-gone singing voice, I found the setlist and presentation quite tired and uninspiring. All the songs before intermission, and nearly all the songs after intermission, had been performed in Melbourne before.

The songs in order were as follows:
Living In The Past
Nothing Is Easy
Heavy Horses
Thick As A Brick (a shortened version)
Banker Bets, Banker Wins
Jack In The Green
Bouree (written by Johann Sebastian Bach)
Farm On The Freeway
Songs From The Wood (last song before intermission)
Sweet Dream
Pastime With Good Company (written by King Henry VIII)
Fruits Of Frankenfield
Dharma For One
A New Day Yesterday
Toccata And Fugue In D Minor (written by Johann Sebastian Bach)
My God
Aqualung (last song before encore)
Locomotive Breath.

It's a rare year to have 3 of my musical heroes performing here. I enjoyed James Taylor in February and I'm looking forward to Yusuf (Cat Stevens) in November.
