"Sex bomb" singer to headline new Big Gig event

Thursday 06 February 2014


One of the biggest legends in pop music, Sir Tom Jones, is returning to the Island after more than twenty years to perform at a special one-off event for charity in July.

The Welsh singer, who has sold more than 100 million records and enjoyed 36 top 40 hits in the UK, will headline a night of entertainment in Howard Davis Park on Friday 18 July. He last performed in the Island at Fort Regent in the 1980s.

The event is being brought to Jersey by the Big Gig in the Park team. Founder of Helping Jersey Charities Limited and organizer of the Big Gig in the Park Caroline Strachan said: “This is an incredible opportunity and one that we could not refuse once offered. Sir Tom Jones’ reputation is legendary and we are incredibly excited that he will visit and perform in Jersey. We have decided to hold an additional evening which will hopefully appeal to a completely different audience to that which will be interested in attending the Big Gig in the Park. “

Sir Tom is famous for hits including “It’s Not Unusual”, “What’s New Pussycat”, “Delilah”, “Kiss” and “Sex Bomb”. He is currently working on BB1’s singing talent show ‘The Voice’.

The Acts for the Sure Big Gig in the Park in association with Channel 103 will be announced soon.
