Ian Anderson and the best of Jethro Tull will headline The National Theater in Richmond, VA next month to honor veterans, first responders, and to raise awareness of the global threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).
All proceeds from the Helping Heroes concert, taking place Sunday, October 5th, go to support programs helping our heroes and responding to the threat from IEDs.
Fans can enter to win “The Ultimate Fan Experience with Ian Anderson” for the chance to sit in a private backstage box and get their photo taken with the Jethro Tull founder.
“We don’t always ask our leaders to take us into war, but we all seek to help bring democratic freedoms and human rights – especially for women and children – to troubled nations throughout the world,” said Anderson in a statement. “On behalf of the brave young men and women of our troops abroad, I urge you to support the victims of IED madness, now in need of rehabilitation and care. For them and their families, please support the Global Campaign against IEDs.”
