Sir Tom Jones
Tickets for Tom Jones at the LowryIn a career that has spanned six decades, Sir Tom Jones recorded an expansive body of work and performed with almost every major artist, from Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis and Sinatra, to Robbie Williams, Van Morrison and Ed Sheeran, and across every imaginable genre, from rock and pop to country, blues and soul. On the 8th of October Sir Tom will release his first ever full autobiography via Penguin Books entitled ‘Over the Top and Back’. In support of this highly anticipated release Sir Tom will undertake a very special four date run of the UK starting the 9th of October that will see him in conversation with music aficionado and BBC 6Music presenter Matt Everitt followed by an exclusive performance.
Inspired by the release of his first ever biography ‘Over the Top and Back – The Autobiography’ lucky fans will be witness to Sir Tom and Matt Everitt revisiting his past, exploring the twists of fate that took a boy from wartime Pontypridd to global renown. He reveals the stories behind the hits as well as the ups and downs of his remarkable life and career, while charting the nature of success – from his early heydays to the subsequent fallow years the 1980s to his later period of his artistic renaissance.
Accompanying this discussion will be a very special performance of songs of significance to Sir Tom, including a number of tracks from the accompanying sound track album to the book, entitled Long Lost Suitcase. The opportunity to see Sir Tom delve further into what made him not only a music icon but a national treasure is not to be missed.
