Tom Jones to play Latitude 2010

The legendary Tom Jones is set to appear at this year's Latitude Festival with a special performance on Thursday 15th July. The appearance with his band will see Tom performing songs from his forthcoming album, Praise & Blame, at midnight in the woods.

This landmark album comes in the singer's 70th year, a glowing achievement in what has been a ground-breaking, unpredictable roller-coaster of a 45-year career.

The songs from Praise & Blame (released 26th July on Island Records), are from a repertoire that sees Tom go back to his roots by creating a truly evocative musical work, aided and abetted by producer/musician Ethan Johns.

"It's food for thought, it's real, it's natural, and in that sense it's truly me," says Jones.

The performance will quite possibly be blowing the leaves off the trees when he takes to the secluded and magical stage In The Woods at midnight.
