Tom Jones Returning To North America This Spring

Tom Jones is returning to North America this spring for a 16-show run. The jaunt, which marks the 77-year-old’s first stateside gigs since his recent hip surgery, launches on May 1st in Poughkepsie, New York at Bardavon Opera House and winds down just over a month later on June 2nd, North of the border, at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

Back on April 10th, 2016, Tom Jones’ wife of 59 years, 75-year-old Linda Woodward, died in Los Angeles after a “short but fierce battle with cancer.” Although unconfirmed, Jones has been linked with his old friend Elvis Presley‘s ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, despite representatives denying any romance.

  • Over the past 20 years or so, Tom Jones has shed most of his pop sensibilities and evolved into a dyed in the wool blues singer. We asked him if he made a choice of recording solely age appropriate music: [“Yes, it’s to do with age — there’s no getting away from it. I’ve always sang it in the best way I know how. I put myself into it.”] SOUNDCUE (:08 OC: . . . myself into it)
