Open Air Concerts
Holkham Estate, LHG Live and Live Promotions are delighted to announce that legendary artist Tom Jones is set to perform at Holkham on Sunday 23rd July 2017 in a spectacular outdoor concert.
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. 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 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. Colin Ward MD of Live Promotions, promoter said,”We have worked with Holkham Hall for several years on a number of very successful concerts and are delighted to be bringing one of the world’s greatest performers Tom Jones to Norfolk with LHG Live in July.
