Into The Ark to join Tom Jones on his UK Tour

LHG Live is delighted to announce that 2017 ‘The Voice’ finalists, Into the Ark will join Tom Jones as his guest at Chester Racecourse on Thursday 19th July 2018 in what promises to be an unforgettable evening of entertainment this summer.

Into the Ark first rose to fame during the 2017 edition of ITV’s popular talent show ‘The Voice’ under the guidance of their coach Tom Jones and have since garnered an incredible fan base following their impressive week-on-week performances on the show. Their hauntingly pitch perfect harmonies and beautiful lyrics really setting the duo apart.

The Welsh singing duo is made up of Taylor Jones and Dane Lloyd who describe themselves as ‘soulful acoustic music from Blackwood, South Wales’. Dane was 14 and Taylor was 18 when they met as solo performers and bonded over their passion for gigging and their love for writing and each other’s taste in music. This instant friendship enabled the boys to get on stage and perform together.

The duo’s performances on ‘The Voice’ catapulted them to fame and won the hearts of the nation, and they continue to hold their coach Tom Jones in high revere, forging a friendship with the star, and have since joined him as guests on tour at various locations. They are the perfect choice to join him once again as he performs at Chester Racecourse on Thursday 19 July 2018.

Tom Jones is 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 77—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, having returned after his huge success with Welsh duo ‘Into the Ark’ who made the show’s Grand Finale in 2017. With numerous tours the world over under his belt coupled with 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 Chester Racecourse will feature a collection of Tom’s most popular hits across the decades, including his latest albums, and promises an incredible summer evening of entertainment. Into the Ark will be warming up the crowds ahead of Tom Jones’ performance.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live, promoter said, “I am delighted to announce Into the Ark as guest for Tom Jones. The duo’s energy on stage is terrific, and the boys are a tremendous talent. We are looking forward to seeing them at Chester Racecourse.”
