Tom Jones Rocks Hard Rock

Updated: May 15, 2019

The legendary singer wows the audience... Especially the female element.

Tom Jones

In his fifty-plus years as an entertainment icon, singer/songwriter Tom Jones has always been at the top of his game. From his days in Las Vegas to his current tour, Jones has never stopped working. In fact, it seems that Tom Jones is as popular now as he has ever been.

I say this because of the different age groups that were in attendance at tonight's performance. Everyone from teenagers to great grandmas were here to listen this legendary Welsh crooner. This concert was held at the Hard Rock Event Center in Hollywood, Florida and this show was sold-out.

Jones took to the stage tonight to an audience of screaming females, and maybe a couple of guys too. With an LED screen backdrop displaying fire flames, jones opens this show with John Lee Hookers Burning Hell. His voice is still the sound of honey and his stage presence only proves that he is still the master showman. Gods Gonna Cut You Down, Mama Told Me Not To Come, and Did Trouble Me were to follow.

It is so hard to believe that Jones is 78 years old and has as much energy as a twenty year old. Throughout this entire performance, Jones never faltered on one note or run and kept the ladies wanting more. Jones's concerts have been known to have love-struck women throw articles of clothing on the stage during his performances. I can attest that this tradition is still alive and well. During his performance of Sex Bomb, a female audience member did just that which incited others to do the same.

Jones also sang the hits he is known for. He played What's New Pussycat, Delilah, and It's Not Unusual, which I am sure prompted some in the crowd to do the Carlton.

For those that have not had the opportunity to see Tom Jones in the past should run to buy tickets to see this fantastic performance by a living legend. This was my fist time seeing him in a live concert setting. I certainly hope that it is not my last.
