Legendary Sir Tom Jones swooned a sold out crowd at Foxwoods Resort and Casino this past weekend. Fans went crazy when he took the stage looking dapper in his striped suit jacket and black dress pants. His voice was strong, steady and very smooth for his two-hour spectacular performance. His orchestra was very tight, flawless and never skipped a beat.
He played all the fan favorites “Sex Bomb”, “Delilah”, “What’s New PusseyCat”, “She’s A Lady”, “It’s Not Unusual” and “Mamma Told Me Not To Come” with a touch of jazz. The audience was singing every note right along with him. He could put many younger artists to shame with his stage swagger.
What most I liked about this show, was the way he engages the audience. He still sends women of all ages into a tizzy. You could hear echos of “I love you, Tom” throughout his performance. There were two woman in the crowd before the show that was getting the crowd hyped up by flashing a large bra that they purchased with a special message for Sir Jones.
If Sir Jones comes into your area, I would highly recommend taking your special someone to see this show. Tickets were reasonably priced for seeing this icon. You both would not be disappointed and would score some points with your special lady.
