CONCERT: Sir Tom Jones confirms performance at The 1st Central County Ground


In the wake of the sad passing of his wife Linda, legendary artist Sir Tom Jones has reassured fans that the show WILL go on and his tour dates this summer will go ahead. He confirmed in a statement this morning ‘I came to the conclusion that singing really is my best therapy, see you this summer.’

Sir Tom will perform at The 1st Central County Ground, Hove, home of Sussex Cricket, on Sunday 17th July 2016, in what will be an unforgettable concert. His 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’m sure it’ll be a great night for everyone!”

The concert at The 1st Central 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.
