Hamilton Park bosses have pulled off a stunning signing for their latest music concert, booking the global icon that is Sir Tom Jones.
Tom, who has sold more than 100 million records throughout his 46-year entertainment career and won just as many fans along the way, will grace the stage of the racecourse on Friday, July 6.
He achieved worldwide fame early in his career, topping the charts around the world with hits such as It’s Not Unusual and Green, Green Grass of Home.
Tom has continued his chart success with his latest album Praise & Blame reaching number two in the UK charts and both the recorded work and the live performances earning critical acclaim.
He is now set to release his follow-up album in May this year and is currently starring as a coach on new BBC flagship show ‘The Voice UK’.
This signing sees Hamilton Park build on the success the racecourse has had working with Liz Hobbs Group on two consecutive summers which has seen major acts JLS, The Wanted and Westlife generate capacity crowds at the Lanarkshire venue. Another sell out will be expected when Sir Tom performs live, with fans expected to travel from all over Scotland, the north of England and beyond to see the man known as ‘The Voice’ performing.
Hamilton Park chief executive Vivien Kyles said: “It’s not unusual for us to attract superstars of music yet still we are incredibly excited to welcome a global superstar of Tom Jones’s calibre to Hamilton Park in July. It is a real coup for us.
“We have earned a strong reputation for bringing big names to Scotland and working with Liz and her team again, we were all determined to attract the right act to Hamilton Park this year. Tom Jones certainly fits the bill and we can’t wait to see him on stage wowing another big crowd.
“With tickets going on sale at 9am on Friday, March 23, we are expecting demand to be very high from the offset. Tom Jones is one of the most recognisable names in music with a huge fan-base so we really would encourage fans to act fast to avoid disappointment.”
