Tom Jones Concert 23rd March 2010

The audience was as mixed as the impressively wide range of songs offered at Tom Jones’ concert: Young people who cherished his new songs from his 24hours album, middle –aged fan clubs with glittering bows on their heads and pompoms in their hands who danced in the isles to each and every song, members of the Welsh choir, white haired and bearded like Tom Jones himself, expats and locals holding up flags picturing the Welsh dragon – the Exhibition Centre was sold out.

Tom Jones sang with a voice which has maintained timbre and volume over decades and fans, closing their eyes, would not have noticed a difference to his 1973 concert here in Hong Kong. His songs included rock, soul and country music. He began with titles from his new album which were well received; but then the atmosphere in the concert hall changed dramatically as he intoned “Delilah”, followed by “Green, green grass of home” and “Save the last dance for me” – the audience sang, danced, clapped and whistled.

Highlights were also “Crime to let you”, one of his new songs, which included an excellent trumpet solo and “Kiss” , originally sung by Prince.
The crowd at the Rugby Sevens will – as every year - intone “Delilah” and evoke fond memories of Tom Jones, still one of the masters of a great voice and stage presence.
A resounding success and an unforgettable evening.
