'Youngsters' Flock To Jethro Tull Gig
by Paul Cashmere

9 May 2005

Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson couldn't
believe his eyes when he gazed out into
the crowd of the Tull concert in Melbourne
on Saturday night.
"It's great to see so many young people in
the audience. Some of you are barely out of
your 40s" he joked.

Tull returned to Australia for the first time
since Anderson's ill-fated visit in 1996 when
he was hospitalized in Sydney with deep vein
thrombosis and had to cancel the rest of the tour.

The current tour delved across the 37 year catalogue
of Jethro Tull plus occasional moments from Anderson
and guitarist Martin Barre's solo albums.
Anderson performed his solo song 'Boris Dancing'
which he announced was about former Soviet leader
Boris Yeltzin. "Boris had three left feet but was
seen dancing trying to get the younger vote. He was
a bit like us really" Anderson said.
