Ian Anderson, the legendary rock ‘n’ roller behind the influential band Jethro Tull, has a few changes in store for his string of North American concert dates this fall. Although he’ll definitely play the Tull classics — “Living in the Past” and “Locomotive Breath” are likely additions — the concert experience will be fashioned into a rock opera, telling the story of the original Jethro Tull, an English agricultural inventor who gave the band its namesake.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — AC/DC, the legendary rock ‘n’ roll band from Australia, tore into 20 songs, both classic and new, last night at MetLife Stadium. The concert, featuring the crazed beauty of Angus Young’s guitar and the electric vocals of Brian Johnson, was a love-fest of rockdom. The fans, numbering in the tens of thousands, received both the hit tunes and some awesome new ones off the album Rock or Bust.
The title track from that new album actually opened the concert around 8:45 p.m. The audience, mostly standing, many head bobbing, enjoyed the song and its accompanying theatrics, all meant to introduce the band to the stage and remind everyone of their undying greatness in the annals of rock history.
