Never miss another 'Tom Jones' show
Tom Jones + James Walsh + Sally Barker
Multi-million album-selling singer and TV star Tom Jones is coming to Northampton at the height of summer for a live show at the County Ground.
The 73-year-old Welshman, best known for hits including Delilah, Kiss and Sex Bomb, will perform at Northamptonshire County Cricket Club’s Wantage Road ground on Wednesday, July 9th.
Sir Tom, who is currently a judge on the hit BBC television talent show, The Voice, is the third artist to perform at the ground, after Elton John in 2011 and Madness last year.
His 40-year career has had highlights including receiving a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement and a Knighthood in 2006 for services to music.
Cricket club chief executive, David Smith, said: “We are obviously delighted to have Tom Jones playing at the County Ground. We have been trying to develop the ground as a concert venue, which we believe we have done quite well over the last two years. We are very much looking forward to welcoming him and we are anticipating a very busy night'.

Tom's long career all began with his first hit 'It's Not Unusual' in 1965. Now Tom has found a new audience, thanks in part to his coaching on ITV's 'The Voice', and also in reaching fans of traditional R'n'B and gospel material with the trio of critically acclaimed albums he's released since 2010.
Although he is best known for hits including 'It’s Not Unusual', 'Kiss', 'Delilah', 'What’s New Pussycat' and 'Green Green Grass Of Home', he is first and foremost an artist with a true rhythm and blues soul, as recent albums 'Praise & Blame', 'Spirit In The Room' and 'Long Lost Suitcase' have demonstrated, full of simple, raw and soulful songs.
Knighted by Her Majesty the Queen in 2006, Sir Tom is indeed a living legend. 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. Tom has always been about the power of the song, the power of the voice.
Tom Jones tour dates
AKA the frontman of indie troubadours Starsailor. Older, wiser – and a father – he’s looking forward to “doing something different for a while”, setting off in a different ship but touching people once again, which could include anything from writing more songs with Suzanne Vega or fulfilling a lifetime ambition to write with Shelby Lynne. And making what promises to be a very adventurous solo album, via Pledge Music.
