Tickets for Tom Jones’ one-night performance at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas go on sale this Friday. He will appear on Oct. 7.
Jones, now 81, returns to Las Vegas after a dozen-year absence. The performance is part of Jones’ upcoming “Surrounded by Time” tour. The album on which the tour is based was released last year. In 2021, he told the BBC, “I might be old myself, but my voice is still young.”
He last appeared in Nevada at the Hollywood Theater, currently called the David Copperfield Theater.
It was 53 years ago that Jones recorded the iconic “Tom Jones Live in Las Vegas” album from a performance at The Flamingo. At one point, he performed two shows a night in Las Vegas appearances. Jones first performed in Las Vegas at The Flamingo Hotel in 1967.
Tickets for the upcoming Wynn concert range from $291 to $825, based on website offerings listed on Wednesday.
Foxwoods, Atlantic City Performances
Later this year, Jones will also appear at Foxwoods Resort Casino on Sept. 16 and at Atlantic City’s Borgata Casino on Sept. 9. The tour also includes performances in such North American locations as Chicago, Boston, and Toronto.
This summer, he will perform in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe. He particularly enjoys doing live performances, he revealed in a recent interview.
His typical songs include pop, rhythm and blues, well-known show tunes, soul, and even some gospel melodies. He is a baritone. Worldwide, Jones has sold more than 100 million recordings. Some of his more well-known hits include “What’s New Pussycat,” “She’s a Lady,” and “It’s Not Unusual.”
He was also the star of a TV show, “This Is Tom Jones,” that appeared on the ABC Network in the United States between 1969 and 1971.
Pandemic Stops Shows
Like other performers, his live shows were postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic, starting in 2020. He told a US podcast that he thought he would never again be able to perform live.
It made me wonder: How long is this bloody thing going to last, because I don’t have five years to spare, you know,” Jones said in the interview.
The pandemic curtailed all of his live shows for a year. Then, the vaccine became available.
Born in Wales, Jones was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 2006 for his services to the field of music. He has won several Grammy Awards.
