An Unforgettable Evening of Entertainment as Sir Tom Jones Performs to a Crowd of Over 12,000 at Chester RacecoursePublished on 13 August 2018
Legendary singer Sir Tom Jones captivated a crowd of over 12,000 as he performed an impressive set of his iconic hits on the Roodee last night.
Gates opened at 4.00pm and excited fans made their way through Chester Racecourse and out onto the open course where they waited in anticipation for global superstar Sir Tom to take to the stage.
A thundery shower didn’t put a dampener on the audience as they got into the festival spirt, popped on their ponchos, fastened up their hoods and enjoyed music from support acts Jerry Williams and Into The Ark of The Voice fame.
Once the storm had passed, the sun began to set over the Roodee and Sir Tom took centre stage, welcomed by thrilled cheers from his adoring fans. The concert marked the end of his current tour, and Sir Tom did not disappoint as he wowed the crowds for the final show of this tour.
The hitmaker belted out some of his popular songs from across the decades including Delilah , Mama Told Me Not to Come and Sex Bomb , as well as some of his more recent material from his latest album, much to the delight of his fans.
Richard Thomas, CEO of Chester Racecourse said, “The event was a huge success and we are thrilled to have welcomed the thousands of fans onto the Roodee for an unforgettable evening of entertainment. Sir Tom’s performance was outstanding and he brought something very special to Chester."
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live, producer and promoter said, “The Racecourse is a beautiful setting for an outdoor concert and last night’s event proved that. We have established a long term partnership with Chester Racecourse and will be working together going forwards to bring more incredible music to the Roodee, utilising everything we have learned together to improve customer experience. Sir Tom thoroughly enjoyed his final show of the tour and was overwhelmed by the welcome he received, and the fantastic atmosphere at Chester."
