    Jethro Tull lead singer and flutist Ian Anderson has made some out-of-this-world music, but his upcoming collaboration could be his spaciest concert yet.

    That's because part of it will be from space itself: The International Space Station, to be specific.

    On April 12, Anderson will be taking part in a duet with U.S. astronaut Col. Catherine Coleman, also a flutist, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin's first manned space flight in 1961.

    Here's the catch: Anderson will be performing on stage in Perm, Russia, while Coleman orbits 250 miles above Earth. Her performance will be screened by video link to the audience.

    The duo will perform "Bouree," an instrumental reworking of the Johann Sebastian Bach composition "Bouree in E Minor," which originally appeared on Jethro Tull's 1969 album "Stand Up."
