If you are attending this event, please take a read of the Frequently Asked Questions sections for all you need to know.

Tom Jones’ 50+ year career has remarkably gone from strength to strength. Along with sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for five decades, he garnered at the age of 75, the best reviews of his career for his most recent albums Long Lost Suitcase, Spirit In The Room and Praise & Blame.

Tom is indeed a living legend, one of the few musical artists whose profession began at the dawn of modern popular music who continues to have a vital recording and performing career to this day. His irresistible show traverses’ musical eras and genres, cuts across class divides and appeals to young and old, male and female, mainstream and cutting edge. Sir Tom has always been about the power of the song, the power of the voice.

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.

Tom is also a popular TV figure, currently reprising his role as a coach on ITV’s The Voice, having returned after his huge success as the mentor for 2018’s winner Ruti Olajugbagbe, previously also mentoring Into the Ark who reached the final in 2017, and a successful season in 2019.

Tom will also be joined by Megan McKenna as a guest at his concert, among other support acts.

The singer, songwriter first came to prominence as a television personality. Yet it wasn’t until 2017’s ‘There’s Something About Megan’ that we really explored the person behind the public persona. The show saw Megan travel to Nashville to experience the country music scene that she’d always loved and introduced her talents as a musician for the first time.

The show’s success resulted in her debut country album ‘Story Of Me’ being released in 2018, with 2 singles hitting number one in on iTunes, knocking Taylor Swift and Pink off the top of the chart. The following year, Megan won ‘The X Factor: Celebrity’, her performances firing her into the iTunes Top 5 during every week of the competition.
