Tom Jones with Lucie Silvas
Multi-million selling singer and legendary artist Tom Jones is coming to ACL Live for one night only.
The Welsh born superstar will be presenting a selection of songs that include iconic hits as well as tracks from his critically acclaimed albums ‘Spirit In The Room’ and Praise & Blame’.
Tom’s career has gone from strength to strength, with his popularity and growth as a live performer and recording artist sustained for half a century. Although he is well known for hits including It’s Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah and If I Only Knew, he is first and foremost a rocker with a true rhythm and blues soul.
2010 saw the release of Tom’s 39th studio album, Praise & Blame, which achieved a career- pinnacle of critical acclaim as well as impressive international sales. The album of spiritually-themed American repertoire was recorded as wholly live performances with multi-award winning producer/player Ethan Johns.
Following the success of Praise & Blame, Tom released Spirit In The Room’ in May 2012. Like its predecessor, the collection is a collaboration with Ethan, allowing an unvarnished Tom Jones to bring a voice to songs as only he can.
His 40-year career has seen highlights including receiving BRIT Awards including Outstanding Contribution to Music, a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Hitmaker Award from the US Songwriters Hall of Fame, and a knighthood from Her Majesty the Queen in 2006 for Services To Music.
