Too Old To Rock N Roll, Too Young To Die

By William Trillo

It was only moments after The Fantasy Springs Casino Showroom shook from the 7.1 magnitude temblor that Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull belted out their classic tune, “Too Old To Rock N Roll, Too Young To Die”. It couldn’t have been a more fitting song as the sexagenarian crowd didn’t think about leaving the shaking arena as Tull played on without missing a beat. It was Rock N Roll (take term literally) at its finest.

Earthquake aside it was another great evening of music at the Indio Resort and Casino. With his trusty Flute by his side the spry Anderson broke out a bevy of deep tracks and classics that made Jethro Tull an industry standard back in the day.

On this, his 50th anniversary tour, Anderson led Tull through some oldies like “A Song For Jeffrey” and “Heavy Horses” all the way through his signature song “Aqualung” and the rousing encore song “Locomotive Breath”. Earthquake withstanding it was a night the Palm Desert crowd will not soon forget.

Along with some great concerts Fantasy Springs is also the home for World Class Championship boxing promoted by Golden Boy. For more on these great events log on to
