Jethro Tull have rescheduled their previously-cancelled Mumbai concert for
tonight, Dec. 5, 2008 at 7:30 PM, at the Shammukhanda Hall, in Mumbai, India. 
Jethro Tull will perform with the group’s special guest, Anoushka Shankar. All
artist fees are going to local charities in the wake of the recent terror
attacks.

 
Ian Anderson said, in a statement: “We have all been outraged at the awful
atrocities of the last week and were forced to take the decision to
suspend the Mumbai concert in the light of the Taj Hotel siege which, at
the time of cancellation, was still ongoing. In the light of today’s new India terror
warnings and airport alerts, we are all understandably a little nervous about
the show but hiding under the bed is not really an option.”
 

Tonight’s Billion Hands charity concert will feature Tull’s Classic Rock and acoustic music
as well as specially-written new material for the collaborative set with Anoushka
Shankar.
