Jethro Tull are set to release a career-spanning four DVD set on June 25 featuring 35 years of the group’s live shows, from a gig at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 to a 2005 performance at the Estival in Lugano, Switzerland.
The collection, named Around the World Live, offers a bevy of fan favorites, including “Thick as a Brick,” “Nothing Is Easy,” “Budapest,” “Life Is A Long Song,” “Aqualung,” “Too Old to Rock ‘n’ Roll, Too Young to Die” and more.
The majority of the performances will be released for the first time in the set. The offering also includes a 32-page hard cover book with frontman Ian Anderson’s personal photo archive, an interview with Anderson from a Hilversum, Holland gig in 1999 and more goodies.
More live performances featured in the set include stops in Tampa, Fla. (1976); Munich, Germany (1980); Santiago, Chile (1996); Montreux, Switzerland (2003); and beyond.
