Tom Jones @ Castle Park | England | United Kingdom

Global superstar Tom Jones is set to perform at Colchester Castle Park on Sunday 21 July 2019 in what promises to be an unforgettable evening of entertainment this summer.

 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. He is unequivocally a living legend.

 With a career spanning six decades and more than 100 million record sales under his belt, including hits such as It’s Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah and What’s New Pussycat, his popularity as a live performer continues at a pace unrivalled in the industry, with some of the best reviews of his career hailing from his most recent albums Long Lost Suitcase, Spirit In The Room and Praise & Blame.

 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 last year’s winner Ruti, previously also mentoring Into the Ark who reached the final in 2017.

The concert at Colchester Castle Park on Sunday 21 July 2019 will feature a collection of Tom’s most popular hits across the decades, including his latest albums.
