Following on the heels of his universally praised and successful album 24 Hours, Tom Jones is pleased to announce a full UK Tour this October, returning to The Metro Radio Arena on Tuesday 13th October 2009.
Tom is a living legend who has befriended, collaborated and hung out with practically every key character in the music and showbiz worlds; he has the rare ability to cut across generations and genres, appealing to young and old, mainstream and cutting edge alike.
One of the great performers of both the 20th and 21st centuries, he's widely recognized as one of the godfathers of modern soul, a man without whom the likes of Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson, Joss Stone and Duffy would never have existed.
Incredibly, after making music for 45 years, it has been suggested by critics on both sides of the Atlantic that his latest album 24 Hours might just be his best yet. Recently certified Gold, it is a collection of largely original songs that Tom has co-written, containing some of the most personal and revealing work in his 5 decade long career.
"[24 Hours] delivers his most honest and contemporary sound in years....A stunning return"
"Listening to Tom Jones remains a pleasure....on this form, long may it continue"
"Possibly a career best"
Daily Express (London)
Sir Tom is coming back into the nation's arenas and hearts with a career topping album, 2 hit singles, memorable performances on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and Later With Jools Holland and lending his name to one of the biggest selling singles of all time - the Comic Relief Islands In The Stream. Or, in the more humble words of a true music fan, "I'm just opening up shop again. Let's see who comes in through the door".
