Tom Jones Explores Influences At the Expense of Hits In Shows These Days

by Paul Cashmere on March 29, 2016

in Live,News

Tom Jones is staying with his soul revival, planning his current shows around his most recent albums and rarely going back to the songs that made him a star in the 1960s.

Jones’ last three albums ‘Praise and Blame’ (2010), ‘Spirit In The Room’ (2012) and ‘Long Lost Suitcase’ (2015) revert back to his influences and that is what Sir Tom is happiest performing live these days.

The classic 60s has been boxed into a three track section towards the end of the first half of his show. ‘Thunderball’, his classic 1966 Bond theme, was also given an airing at the end of the show.

Tom Jones performed his show for Melbourne fans at Hamer Hall on March 25.
