Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull will duet with an astronaut in space tomorrow.
Colonel Catherine Coleman will be in the International Space Station, while Tull will be on stage in Perm, Russia.
They will perform "Bouree" from the Jethro Tull "Stand Up" album. Coleman has been playing the flute in space on one leg, as best as she can in zero gravity.
The performance will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin's first manned space flight.
