Fresh from the outlets, here comes the exciting news that the incomparable TOM JONES will extend his Australian trip to take in a further five-headline show. Legendary Welsh singer Tom Jones kicks off his Australian tour next year with a performance at Kings Park on March 13.
Over his 50-year career, Tom Jones has sold more than 100 million records, won a Grammy and two Brit Awards, and given us countless hits including: “If I Only Knew”, “It’s Not Unusual”, “Kiss”, “Green, Green Grass of Home”, “Delilah”, “Mama Told Me”, “Burning Down The House”, and “Sex Bomb”.
Jones has a fundamental interest in a wide range of music and although he is well known for hits, he is first and foremost an artist with a true Rhythm and Blues soul. He has remained a vital recording artist, with his 1999 album Reload the biggest selling (five million) of his then 35-year career.
His career has remarkably gone from strength to strength. Along with sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for five decades, he has garnered– at the age of 75, the best reviews of his career for his two most recent albums “Spirit In The Room” and “Praise & Blame”.
Knighted in 2006, he recently released his autobiography, “Over the Top and Back”, alongside the companion album, “Long Lost Suitcase”—the third in an acclaimed trilogy recorded with English producer Ethan Johns.
Tom Jones will grace Australian shores throughout March, kicking off at Perth’s Kings Park and Botanic Garden on the 13th before heading to Adelaide, Hobart, Sydney and Melbourne, with Bluesfest on March 28, closing the curtains on a tour that’s not to be missed.
