‘70s pop legend Tom Jones comes to Korea

Music, Pop

Think Sir Tom Jones can’t shake it anymore? At 75, this knighted legend is still stirring things up with his badass moves all over the world. Hitting Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan and more, Tom Jones is making his overdue comeback to Seoul. For Korean fans, it’s been 33 years since they’ve been able to see him in concert here. While his last show in Korea was back in 1983, he did come back six years ago with plans to perform. However, the concert was called off due to a case of laryngitis and many disappointed fans here have been waiting ever since. One of his most popular songs is “Delilah,” which was made even more popular because Jo Young-nam, of C’est Si Bon, rearranged the song for his song “Green Green Grass of Home.” With retro culture all the rage in Seoul, it should be exciting to see how the audience takes in Tom Jones’s music. He’ll be performing with a big band, and fans of all ages are expected to show up. Rumored to be nearly shut down for indecency in Sydney, Australia, let’s see how wild Tom Jones gets in Seoul. by Rphabet
