MCD is thrilled to announce the legendary Tom Jones will play a date at The Royal Theatre, Castlebar on Sun 21st June
Tom Jones is indeed a living legend. His irresistible show traverses musical eras and genres, cuts across class divides and appeals to young and old, male and female, mainstream and cutting edge. He has always been about the power of the song, the power of the voice. This is a unique opportunity for music fans to experience one of the most iconic voices of all time, perform hits from his vast catalogue, in an intimate theatre setting. Tickets (€59) are on sale now.
Tom Jones’ 49-year career has remarkably gone from strength to strength. Along with sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for nearly five decades, he has garnered — at the age of 74 — the best reviews of his career for his two most recent albums Spirit In The Room and Praise & Blame (Island/Universal). Critics across the world are unanimous in their approval and admiration for both the recorded work and the performance of it in concert. Jones has a fundamental interest in a wide range of music. Although he is well known for hits including It’s Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah, What’s New Pussycat, I’ll Never Fall In Love Again and If I Only Knew, he is first and foremost an artist with a true rhythm and blues soul. He has remained a vital recording artist, with his 1999 album Reload the biggest selling (5m) of his then 35-year career. Tom was a key player in Martin Scorsese’s Red White & Blues series, and in 2004 released an album of roots rock n roll with Jools Holland. In 2008, 24 Hours, was a critical career highlight with many of the self-penned tracks being an insightful and evocative reflection of his spirited and rich life.
In 2015, Sir Tom continued his role as Coach on BBC’s primetime television show The Voice. Now in its fourth Series, Tom was working alongside Will.i.am, Rita Ora and Ricky Wilson coaching talented hopefuls in their search to become successful musical artists. Currently fresh from performing in Los Angeles at the 25th Anniversary of MusiCares honouring Bob Dylan, and the 57th Annual Grammy’s alongside Jessie J, Tom is ready to hit the road again with his 2015 US and European tour.
“His biggest asset is the voice of thunder, last night it filled the Madrid Sports Palace with power and strength. Jones chose a deep and varied repertoire, in which there was rhythm & blues, gospel, country and rock…the voice ignited the public.”
- Rolling Stone (Madrid)
