Tom Jones, live in London
Venue: O2 Arena, London
The Voice digs deep into his blues roots
Since when has Tom Jones been a blues singer? Longer than you might think. He first starred at the BluesFest in London back in 2012, when he put on a rather tentative show at the Hammersmith Apollo. And before that, in 2010, he released Praise & Blame, the first of a trilogy of albums produced by Ethan Johns in which Jones has reinvented himself as the mainstream pop world’s guardian of gospel, blues and American roots music.
