Tickets on Sale – Friday 25 January 2019 from 9.00am
Global superstar Tom Jones is set to perform at Newbury Racecourse on Saturday 20 July 2019, on Weatherbys Super Sprint Day in what promises to be an unforgettable afternoon 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.
With numerous tours the world over under his belt coupled with 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 concert at Newbury Racecourse on Saturday 20 July 2019 will take place after live racing that afternoon and feature a collection of Tom’s most popular hits across the decades, including his latest albums.
Rob Boobyer, Head of Marketing for Newbury Racecourse said, “We are really looking forward to welcoming Tom Jones back here again after almost nine years. He last played to a fantastic crowd of racegoers in 2011 and he always truly captivates his fans whenever he takes to the stage. We have A-list action on and off the course and are really looking forward to welcoming all his fans for what promises to be a fantastic afternoon.”
The £250,000 Weatherbys Super Sprint is the centrepiece of a seven-race card which will precede the concert.
