Welsh singing sensation Sir Tom Jones was forced to cancel a show after falling ill


Sir Tom Jones, 78, was due to perform at Stansted Park on the 18th of July 2018 when he fell gravely ill and was taken to hospital where he is being treated for a "bacterial infection" according to a post on his Twitter page.

The Stansted Park performance was canceled, but his next concert due to take place at the Chester Racecourse on the 19th of July was rescheduled for August 2018.

This is not the first time Jones has been forced to cancel performances for health reasons. In September 2017, Jones canceled his US tour just five days before it was scheduled to begin, later revealing he had had to have a hip replacement procedure.


"The show will be rescheduled for Sunday 12th August. All tickets still remain valid for the rescheduled date. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled date, refunds will be available at point of purchase."

He had his own show in Las Vegas from 1967 to 2011 and played always to full houses. He has reinvented himself, did a cover of Prince's "Kiss", and made it his own, ventured out into R&B and jazz,


He started coaching on The Voice UK in 2012 and has been an integral part of the show since then. Jones has since apologized personally to his fans and followers for canceçlling the shows tweeting from his hospital bed.

Sir Tom Jones has declared that he is committed to being back on stage as soon as his health allows, He ended his Tweet by saying; "Until then, a sincere thank you for your support and understanding."
