Music legend Tom Jones says he’s looking forward to returning to the South Lakes this summer for the first time in more than 50 years.
Sir Tom is bringing his sensational show to Cartmel Racecourse on Friday June 30.
He last played in the area back in 1966 when he caused a stir at Barow’s 99 Club before heading off to the USA to make his debut there.
A review of the Barrow show said: “Every time he moved his hips the squeals grew louder.
“As Tom roared into Chuck Berry’s Memphis Tennessee the women in the audience showed their appreciation in no uncertain manner.”
The rest is history and this June Sir Tom will visit Cartmel’s stunning racecourse for one night only.
Speaking about the concert he said: “Racecourses always put together a great night out – the audiences are up for a good time so I’m looking forward to getting on stage at Cartmel.
“It is more than 50 years since I last played in this part of the country, it is a beautiful part of the UK and I’m sure it is going to be a fantastic night.”
With a career that has seen him sell in excess of 100 million records, Tom Jones has won countless accolades including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music and a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Knighted by Her Majesty The Queen in 2006, the global star has amassed 36 top 40 UK hits.
Fans at the Cartmel show are assured of a fantastic night as Tom and his band present a stunning set-list built from a career that traverses all eras and genres of popular music.
