Jethro Tull 'Nervous' Over Mumbai Show05 December 2008
The veteran British band cancelled the 29 November (08) gig after gunmen swooped on the city and killed nearly 200 people in a massacre that shocked the world.
The concert will now take place on Friday (05Dec08) - but, following further security alerts in India this week (begs01Dec08), the rockers admit they are "nervous" about the show.
Singer Ian Anderson says, "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 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."
The band will play the concert along with special guest Anoushka Shankar. Both acts plan to donate their artist fees from the show to local charities.
