British rock band, Jethro Tull performs at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, following their first gig at the ancient theatre in 2003. They return to Athens celebrating their 50 years of music as part of this year’s Athens and Epidaurus Festival.
Led by lead vocalist, flautist and acoustic guitarist Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull have influenced generations of rockers throughout their long and fruitful career.
