Hopes of British band Jethro Tull and front man Ian Anderson
visiting Dunedin later this year have been dashed.
Concert promoter Stewart Macpherson, of Stetson Group, said
his company had been in negotiations to bring the band to the
Regent Theatre on December 17.
However, Jethro Tull's managers confirmed yesterday the band
would not be coming, he said.
''They are going to do a second show in Christchurch instead.
''It's largely to do with all the travel arrangements that
had already been put in place, and so it just didn't work out
to be able to make that change, sadly.''
