Tom Jones has announced a string of U.S. tour dates for September and October, beginning Sept. 6 in Bethlehem, Pa., and ending in Tulsa, Okla., on Oct. 7.

As Best Classic Bands wrote in our review last year: “To see Tom Jones in concert [now] is a very different experience than it was in his Vegas days. He falls into the category of senior citizen artists who have aged gracefully (think Tony Bennett), content to let the music drive the show.”

Jones has had 19 Top 40 singles in the U.S. and sold some 100 million records worldwide. He broke through in the U.S. when “It’s Not Unusual” went Top 10. He also scored hits with the themes for the films What’s New Pussycat? (written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David) and Thunderball. He went on to win the 1966 Grammy Award for Best New Artist.

His many hits include “She’s A Lady,” “Green, Green Grass of Home” and “Delilah.” Jones hosted a variety show, This Is Tom Jones, that aired on ABC-TV from 1969 to 1971 and featured some of the biggest guests in classic rock. Though his presence on the U.S. pop charts faded by the 1980s, he continued to place songs in the American country charts throughout that decade. In recent decades he has continued to win new and younger listeners with his recordings of songs like Prince’s “Kiss” and Talking Heads’ “Burning Down the House,” as well as his own co-written tune “Sex Bomb” and albums produced by Wyclef Jean and Jack White. He was Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2006.
