Photos from Jethro Tull at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto

Photographer Andrei Chlytchkov will be covering gigs for this site. His first assignment was Jethro Tull at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto on July 3.

The group has been plugging away for half a century and don’t seem interested in stopping. Andrei’s friend Khashayar had this to say about a recent gig at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto:

Considering the stage props and gadgets they are using on this tour, probably this is even closer to what Ian Anderson have had in mind as a visual-lyrical performance. From that vintage TV screen in the beginning to the “Locomotive Breath” at the end, it was one hell of a ride. Ian and the band wouldn’t let you blink a moment.

Another particularly nice touch to it all was the introductions of previous band members and guitar legends. When the collage of all such faces came together in one final picture on the screen, you could feel the weight and excitement of a lifetime of achievements in musical experimentation in your heart and bones.
