JethroTull at Ravinia

For those of you who ask, what’s your real job during the off-season? Well, working at Ravinia is the real job and planning is a huge part of what we all do October through April, and the most important part is the schedule. As the dates fill up, the office becomes abuzz with excitement. You can imagine my joy when I came into the office a few weeks ago and heard that Jethro Tull tickets would be going on-sale December 4. 

The group formed in 1968 outside of London after their other bands had called it quits.  Their eclectic and unique sound led by flautist and singer Ian Anderson, soon brought them the success they had been looking for and launched Jethro Tull as a world-famous group rivaling the great live performers like Led Zeppelin and Elton John among others. To give you a taste of what you have to look forward to this summer, listen to this live recording of Jethro Tull performing “Aqualung.”
