Tom Jones Concert 2011

Tom’s 46-year career has remarkably gone from strength to strength. Along with sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for more than four decades, he has garnered—at the age of 70—the best reviews of his career for his recent album, Praise & Blame (Island/Lost Highway/Universal). Critics across the world are unanimous in their approval and admiration for both the recorded work and the performance of it in concert.

The Praise & Blame mantra was ‘get back to basics’, and the album was recorded as wholly live performances at Peter Gabriel’s studio in Bath, England, produced by Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling, Paolo Nutini). The result witnesses a singer at the top of his game, with the songs themselves coaxing exhilarating performances out of Tom and his band. Played live to astounding success at festivals and venues in the UK and Europe, Tom now brings Praise & Blame to concertgoers everywhere as part of his live show experience in 2011.

Here is what the critics have said:

“It’s like The White Stripes or The Black Keys with a more commanding singer…with his charisma and assurance, Tom Jones could lead a congregation of sinners easily to God – if he wasn’t such a naughty boy.” Andy Gill, The Independent

“He’s on fine form vocally, and he’s funny with it…. It’s impressively raw, tough-arsed, hard-knuckled blues-rock fare.” Simon Price, The Independent

“Backed by a red-hot band really riding on slinky, rocking blues grooves, Jones’ singing shifted from an ominous bass growl to a raw, pleading tenor…smiling, joking and wielding his remarkable voice with a lusty, tangible pleasure, he brought the joyousness of a southern gospel Baptist meeting to the occasion. His chosen material appropriately places more emphasis on acknowledging the faults of the sinner than the glory of God.” Neil McCormick, The Telegraph

“Jones delivers with such gusto that the rafters really seem to rattle…and yet it’s a testament to his prowess as an entertainer that he can pull it off with such aplomb.” Kitty Empire, The Observer

“This is a singer reborn and one whose newfound direction could provide a new sense of purpose for some time to come.” Julian Marszalek , AOL Spinner Music

“This was an evening of joy and one that promised uplift: here is a man who has finally found himself.” John Aizlewood, London Evening Standard

Tom Jones’s career and his countless hits are not necessary to be introduced to the Hungarian audience either. His sold-out, standing-ovation show two years ago in Budapest will be unforgettable to all of them who could be there.
