(Gibson) Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson will perform the band's classic album Thick as a Brick on tour to mark the album's 40th anniversary next year.

The tour will begin in Great Britain in mid-April 2012, before heading through Europe in the late spring and summer, and winding up with U.S. dates spanning September, October and November. Anderson jokes that the tour will feature "a more theatrical production with video, additional musicians and a troupe of dancing elephants. (Just kidding about the dancing elephants: they don't dance…)"

Thick as a Brick was a #1 Billboard album featuring a single song spanning almost 45 minutes. It has not been performed in full since 1972. Meanwhile, the 40th anniversary of the band's Aqualung album will be marked by two reissues. more on this story
