He's sold over 100million records and received an OBE from Britain's Queen Elizabeth, so get excited for music legend Tom Jones' big gig in the UAE.
The 76-year-old will be headlining the first night of Emirates Airlines Dubai Jazz Festival 2017, taking to the stage at Media City Ampitheatre February 23. Fans of the crooner – who has hits including "It's Not Unusual", "Delilah" and "What's New Pussycat" – will be glad to hear his plans for the region as he canceled a gig in Abu Dhabi earlier this year. Tom, a judge alongside the likes of will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale on the The Voice UK, lost his childhood friend and wife of 59 years, Melina, in April.
