/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Within the frames of its European tours, Jethro
Tull legendary rock group will organize one concert in Yerevan on
May 22. Armenian rock fans and connoisseurs of the British rock
group can attend the concert in Sports-Concert Complex after Karen
Demirtchyan. During the concert which will last two hours, the group
conducted by Ian Anderson will perform both old and news songs of
its repertoire.

"World-famous celebrities, Jethro Tull musicians turned out
exceptionally modest, and unlike Scorpions, didn't demand 7 limousines
of latest fashion," Head of Vibrographus company Vardan Grigoryan
told a news conference.

The group's music is a mixture of blues, folk-rock and a little bit
of jazz. Jethro Tull was formed in 1963, out of the amalgamation of
the John Evan Band and McGregor's Engine, two blues-based local UK
groups. Over the 40 years of its existence Jethro Tull has released
40 albums and sold over 60 million recording discs.

Concert organizers say they are now negotiating with Deep Purple,
Paul McCartny and Russian DDT and Mashina Vremeni groups for inviting
them to Yerevan.
