Time Out announces Tom Jones to perform in Abu Dhabi in 2016. Get ticket information for the du Arena concert, which will see him perform his greatest hits.

The Knowledge

Iconic singer Tom Jones is coming to the UAE.

The crooner will perform at Abu Dhabi's du Arena on Friday April 15, 2016, his first show in the region for more than three years.

With more than half a century in the business, the 75-year-old has legions of fans the world over and continues to deliver stunning show after stunning show.

Jones' tour is likely to be a collection of his greatest hits, as it remains almost four years since he released any fresh material (Spirit In The Room, 2012). Then, the song list also formed the chapters of his autobiography, the acclaimed Over The Top And Back.

That means fans can expect the likes of It's Not Unusual, Thunderball, What's New Pussycat, Green Green Grass Of Home, and Delilah, plus plenty more.

Tickets for Tom Jones' concert in Abu Dhabi go on sale on November 24 priced from Dhs350 for general admission, and Dhs450 Golden Circle. Visit ticketmaster.ae

Speaking in 2014, Jones, who was recently ranked among the Top 100 Glastonbury performances ever, jokingly suggested he would still be touring in 50 more years.

His trip to Abu Dhabi is part of a world tour that sees him visit London, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and many other destinations.

Earlier this month he helped raise nearly Dhs6 million as part of the UK's BBC Children In Need One Big Night. His contributions included donating a pair of signed Prada, brogue, patent, dark brown shoes worn at The Jools Holland Show.
