GLOBAL superstar Sir Tom Jones is set to perform in Darlington later this year.

The Welsh singer, who has sold more than 100 million records, with hits including It’s Not Unusual, Kiss, Delilah and What’s New Pussycat, is taking his tour to Darlington Mowden Park on June 14.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday.

Lee Rust, group managing director at the Darlington Arena, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome a truly global artist and renowned entertainer to Darlington this summer.

“It is the result of several years of work with LHG to deliver back to back concerts and to establish the Darlington Arena as an event venue that can host world class entertainment on behalf of our region.

“Our event team have worked tirelessly alongside Darlington Borough Council and Tees Valley Combined Authority and we’re now incredibly excited about the show that Tom will put on this summer for the people of the North-East.’’ The arena has previously hosted the likes of Sir Elton John, Steps and most recently Jess Glynne.

The celebrated performer, who will be marking his 80th birthday in June, has had a career spanning more than 50 years and is currently appearing as a coach on ITV programme The Voice.

The concert in Darlington will feature a collection of his most popular hits across the decades, as well as music from his latest albums, Long Lost Suitcase, Spirit In The Room and Praise&Blame.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs, chief executive of LHG Events, promoter, said, “We are of course thrilled to be working with Sir Tom Jones once again, having promoted and produced concerts with him across the country for several years.

“Tom remains one of the most popular artists in the industry and we have seen first-hand how he truly captivates an audience.

“Fans in Darlington are in for a treat with an evening filled with Tom’s most recognisable and popular hits.

“We are looking forward to seeing you all there and would urge you to buy your tickets early.”
