Music Legend Tom Jones to Delight Sofia Again Wednesday Night
Famous musician, singer Tom Jones is coming back for a concert in the Bulgarian capital Sofia on October 30.
Jones has said that one of the most memorable concerts from his previous tour happened precisely in Sofia, and the Bulgarian public charged him with so much positive energy that it turned into one of his strongest performances ever in his long career span.
The musician has insisted before his managers to include Bulgaria in his latest tour as well.
He is returning with a very special show to include hits such as "Delilah", "Mama Told Me Not to Come", "What's New Pussycat", "It's Not Unusual", "She's a Lady", "Burning Hell", "Tower of Song" and "Hit Or Miss."
The concert will be held on October 30 in Hall 1 of the National Palace of Culture, NDK, in downtown Sofia at 7 pm.
In his 46 years on stage, the huge talent has performed pop, rock, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, soul and gospel – and sold over 100 million records.
Welsh-born, Sir Thomas John Woodward, 73, has had thirty-six Top 40 hits in the United Kingdom and nineteen in the United States; some of his notable songs include "It's Not Unusual", "What's New Pussycat", "Delilah", "Green, Green Grass of Home", "She's a Lady", "Kiss" and "Sex Bomb."
Having been awarded an OBE in 1999, Jones received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II for "services to music" in 2006. Jones has received numerous other awards throughout his career, including the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1966, an MTV Video Music Award in 1989 and two Brit Awards – winning Best British Male, in 2000, and Outstanding Contribution to Music, in 2003.
Critics praise highly both his concerts and recordings.
