Tom Jones, 83, arrives in Brisbane ahead of Bryon Bay Blues Festival




Tom Jones showed no signs of slowing down as he touched down in Brisbane on Saturday, ahead of his gig at the Byron Bay Blues Festival. 

The music legend, 83, is touring around Australia after revealing last year he has no plans to retire. 

Tom looked a little tired as he walked through the terminal ahead of his performance at the BluesFest, which attracts more than 100,000 music lovers. 

The singer cut a casual figure in a black checked flannel shirt, jeans and a baseball cap for the flight. 

Tom, who has been travelling around Australia and was in Perth earlier this week, looked like he had been making the most of the sunshine as he sported a bronzed tan.

He next performs at A Day On The Green in NSW on Saturday, then has shows in Adelaide and Melbourne.

The Sex Bomb hitmaker will also appear at various dates through March and April including the Newcastle Entertainment Centre.

He finishes up with a show in Sydney at the Aware Super Theatre on April 4th.

Last year, Tom insisted he has no plans to retire from performing anytime soon. 

The music legend admitted while he can’t dance around the stage as much as he did in past shows, he’ll only retire if his voice starts to fail. 

In 2022, Tom revealed he’d had his second hip replacement surgery after having his first done back in 2017.

It came after he admitted he had to sit down during a majority of his shows, and could only perform around four of his songs while standing up.

‘The only way [I would retire] is if I couldn’t sing any more. If something went wrong with my vocal ability, I wouldn’t want to go on not in full strength. I wouldn’t like to shortchange an audience,’ he told Metro

‘Being old, you can’t do what you used to do. I mean, I can’t walk around like I used to but I wouldn’t want to now. When you’re young you’re full of p*** and vinegar and you’re giving it plenty. Now I concentrate more on singing than I do anything else.

‘I’m still able to get up there and do it live. I don’t know, it’s a good question because I’ve never really thought about that … If people want to go and see that then fine.’

Tom added that if he was ever unable to perform in the future, he’d be open to the idea of a hologram to replace him, though he hopes that’s ‘nowhere near.’
