Tom Jones to Perform at Canterbury

For the first time ever in Canterbury and much to the delight of his fans, legendary artist Tom Jones is set to perform at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, home of Kent County Cricket Club, on Saturday 8 July 2017.

Tom Jones is considered a living legend. His irresistible style fuses musical eras and genres, cuts across class divides, and appeals to all ages, male and female, mainstream and cutting edge. Tom has always been about the power of the song, the power of the voice. And what a voice indeed.

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, including hits such as It's Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah and What's New Pussycat. Along with sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for five decades, he has garnered—at the age of 76—the best reviews of his career for his most recent albums Long Lost Suitcase, Spirit In The Room and Praise & Blame.

A popular choice not just on the stage but on TV, Tom is currently a coach on ITV's The Voice, and has appeared in films, including 'Mars Attacks'. With numerous tours the world over under his belt, and a legion of fans, his extraordinary career was recognised in 2006 through his knighthood from Her Majesty the Queen, and a string of prestigious music awards, including BRIT Awards for Best Male and Outstanding Contribution to Music, a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Hitmaker Award from the [US] Songwriters Hall of Fame, GQ Man Of The Year, and the prestigious [UK] Music Industry Trust Award.

The concert at the Spitfire Ground, St. Lawrence, Canterbury will feature a collection of Tom's most popular hits across the decades, including his latest albums.

Tom Jones said, "I am really looking forward to coming to the lovely cathedral city of Canterbury. I love doing outdoor shows and being able to perform at the Spitfire Ground is fantastic. It promises to be a great night so I hope everyone comes out to enjoy this show in this beautiful venue."

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live, promoter said, "We are delighted to be working with Tom Jones once again at the Canterbury concert. Tom is an incredible artist that enthrals his fans whenever he takes to the stage. It is going to be a beautiful summer evening filled with his most recognisable and popular hits. We are delighted also to be working with the team at Kent County Cricket Club; it's a fantastic venue and the perfect setting for this concert."
