Legendary Welsh crooner Tom Jones swapped the green, green grass of home for the green lawns of Holkham Hall for an outdoor concert.
Sir Tom’s distinctive baritone voice and iconic hits have earned him a place as one of the nation’s best loved artists and he delighted audiences with a collection of his most popular hits across the decades, including his latest albums.
Despite traffic issues due to an accident that left fans spending hours queuing for his show in the grounds of Holkham Hall on Sunday, the singer was in fine voice on classics including Kiss, Delilah and What’s New Pussycat and It’s Not Unusual.
Now aged 77, with more than 100million record sales under his belt, the singer showed no signs of slowing down.
And thanks to his role on TV’s The Voice UK he has managed to keep relevant and win a new younger audience.
He continues having hits with an eclectic musical mix spanning pop, rock, soul, RnB, dance, country and gospel and it was all in evidence on stage.
