Welsh legend Tom Jones to play in Abu Dhabi next year
Sir Thomas Jones Woodward, aka Tom Jones, aka the king of sing-along tunes from the Sixties, will return to Abu Dhabi next April.
Playing at the du Forum on Yas Island on Friday April 15, the It’s Not Unusual crooner (who played in the capital three years ago) will be sure to play his classic hits, while also taking us through his most recent albums, this year’s Long Lost Suitcase, 2012’s Spirit in the Room and 2010’s Praise & Blame.
Fifty years into his career, the now 75-year-old Welshman is renowned for his continuing vocal power, his bold baritone and his easy charisma on stage.

And Honey Honey, a bluegrass-like duet with Imelda May from his most recent album:
Tickets for Tom Jones cost Dhs350 for general admission and Dhs450 for golden circle. They go on sale at 12pm on Tuesday November 24.
