SUNDAY 17TH JULY 2016
Legendary artist Sir Tom Jones is set to perform at The 1st Central County Ground, Hove, home of Sussex County Cricket Club, on Sunday 17th July 2016, as part of his 2016 UK tour.
Sir Tom Jones' distinctive voice and iconic records have earned him a place as one of the best loved artists ever to emerge from the 1960s with an eclectic musical mix spanning pop, rock, soul, R&B, dance, country and gospel. To date he has achieved more than 100 million record sales, generated by hits such as It's Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah and What's New Pussycat. The 2016 tour will see Sir Tom and his band entertain crowds with a repertoire that spans all five decades of his popular music, including recent albums Spirit in the Room and Praise & Blame, and his latest, Long Lost Suitcase; a compilation of songs and musical inspiration collected by him over years and stored in a suitcase, only to be found years later and brought to life.
"It is brilliant to have such a great venue on the tour line-up and with it being the first time I have performed in Hove I am really looking forward to welcoming all my fans there", says Sir Tom, adding,
"I love performing the music I love and sharing what has for me been an incredible journey through the decades. I'm sure it'll be a great night for everyone!"
The concert at The County Ground, Hove on 17th July 2016 will be part of an exciting number of 2016 tour dates following on from Sir Tom's recent release of the autobiography Over the Top and Back and album Long Lost Suitcase. Fans can expect an exciting, moving and dynamic stage performance delivered with a powerful, nuanced voice that can move mountains.
Zac Toumazi, CEO Sussex Cricket said, "We are delighted to be working with LHG Live in bringing such a legendary artist here, and having worked successfully with them on the Madness 2015 tour it is wonderful to be able to welcome them back for another fantastic event. Sir Tom Jones is certain to be a huge draw here in Hove and we are excited to have him on our stage."
