Historic Royal Palaces and IMG are delighted to announce the legendary Tom Jones will perform at Hampton Court Palace Festival on Wednesday 15th June.

With a career that spans over five decades, Tom is indeed a living legend. Over the course of his phenomenal career he has won a string of accolades including BRIT Awards for Best Male and Outstanding Contribution to Music, a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Hitmaker Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the prestigious Music Industry Trust Award.

Tom is one of the few musical artists whose profession began at the dawn of modern popular music who continues to have a vital recording and performing career to this day. His irresistible show traverses musical eras and genres, appeals to young and old, male and female, mainstream and cutting edge. Tom has always been about the power of the song, the power of the voice.

Tom Jones said: "I’m so excited to be playing at King Henry VIII’s palace. It’s such an historic and beautiful setting. I look forward to seeing everyone for a great night out."

Other artists confirmed to perform in Henry VIII’s Tudor courtyard from 8th – 18th June, include: ten-time Grammy award-winner George Benson, six-time Grammy award-winner Van Morrison, powerhouse vocalist Anastacia, King of boogie-woogie Jools Holland & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, multi-platinum selling artist Caro Emerald and the Fanfare and Fireworks with the glorious Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

Hampton Court Palace Festival is renowned for creating a truly unforgettable experience. Artists perform in the historic main courtyard of the magnificent Tudor Palace providing an intimate atmosphere for an audience of 3,000. Corporate Hospitality and VIP Packages are available in the State Apartments and Festival-goers can also arrive early (doors open at 5.30pm) to enjoy picnics on the Palace Garden lawn or underneath a luxury waterside gazebo before the show. New this year is the Champagne Concert ticket offering premium front-of-stage seating and includes a glass of champagne to enjoy before the concert.
