Tom Jones is to play a concert on the Holkham Estate in July, it was announced today.
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. With more than 100 million record sales under his belt, including the instantly recognisable hits It’s Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah and What’s New Pussycat, he is without doubt a living legend. Tom continues to garner popularity as both a live performer and recording artist after five incredible decades, and at the age of 76, has earned the best reviews of his career for his most recent albums Long Lost Suitcase, Spirit In The Room and Praise & Blame.
Tom is currently a coach on ITV’s popular talent show The Voice, and has appeared in several films, including ‘Mars Attacks’. With numerous tours the world over under his belt, and 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.
The Earl and Countess of Leicester said: “The parkland surrounding Holkham Hall is a perfect setting for Holkham’s outdoor concert and we are thrilled to have such a high profile artist appearing here this year.”
The outdoor concert at Holkham on Sunday, July 23, will feature a collection of Tom’s most popular hits across the decades – including his latest albums – promising fans an unforgettable evening at the height of the summer. The concert will take place in the east park of the grounds of the estate in view of the fact that the popular two-day Country Fair will be taking place over the same weekend.
Tickets are standing only, but concert-goers are encouraged to bring along a blanket or canvas chair so they can relax and enjoy the exquisite setting of the parkland, whilst Tom enthrals on the stage. There will be ample concessions for food and drink.
Tickets for Tom Jones at Holkham Hall, go on sale on Friday at 9am.
