The It’s Not Unusual and Delilah star was due to top the Newmarket Nights bill on Friday, July 24.

Unfortunately, the legendary Welsh singer’s concert at Newmarket Racecourses can no longer be staged due to the ongoing public health situation.

However, promoters at The Jockey Club Live are delighted to announce that they have secured a date for Tom Jones to perform in 2021.

He will now be headlining Newmarket Nights on July 23, 2021.

Tickets will be automatically transferred to the 2021 show at the 2020 price.

There is no action needed to transfer tickets and gig-goers will receive their new tickets to the original email address they booked with.

Sir Tom said in a statement: “I’m really sorry to have to inform you that my shows scheduled for this summer have had to be postponed until next year.

“As you most likely are aware, public performances are sadly not going forward as normal for just about everyone who works in music and entertainment.

“My team have been monitoring the UK Government advice on organised gatherings and I now need to take this action to ensure the protection of fans, my crew and everyone who works in support of the shows.

“It is also important to help ease the pressure on those working on the frontline to fight this virus.”
