Although he is best known for hits including It’s Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah and What’s New Pussycat, he is first and foremost an artist with a true rhythm and blues soul.

Tom Jones will bring the three-night Live in Somerset series of music concerts to a close on the Sunday night.

Madness will headline the Friday (July 12), while Bananarama with special guests, including Jason Donovan, Hazell Dean, Doctor and the Medics and Aswad, will perform on the Saturday evening (July 13).

Rebecca Corbett, of promoter LCC Live, said: “We are extremely excited to be bringing this legendary musician to Vivary Park.

"We expect tickets to sell quickly, which is testament to Tom Jones’ reputation as a world-renowned musician, whose career continues to go from strength to strength.”
