Away from the touristy areas, Technopolis is the scene of many an artistic performance, from festivals to concerts. Here, in a former gas plant, it brings an industrial chic vibe to the heart of a hip neighbourhood with a lively nightlife and many bars. The very charismatic Ian Anderson will be on stage here in early October on his ‘The Best of Jethro Tull' tour, so you can relive the hits of this legendary group of the 1970s, equals of Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, whose elegant style—from progressive and alternative rock—is far from the hits of pop music.
After more than 4,000 concerts over four decades, 30 albums produced and 60 million records sold, come see Anderson, still as vivacious as ever, leaping about on stage and making his flute come alive—a moment not to miss. This leather-clad musician from Blackpool will levitate the night of Athens—and perhaps awaken the gods of Olympus.
