Tickets to see multi-million selling artist Tom Jones at Chesterfield’s Proact Stadium were practically flying out the door as they went on sale.
Supporters of the club were keen to take advantage of an early-bird offer with over 5,000 tickets having sold within the first few hours of going on sale.
Chesterfield chairman Dave Allen commented: “I have been delighted with the response to the news that Tom Jones is performing at the Proact Stadium. Tom is a legendary figure in the music industry and he was always at the top of my list when we looked at potential performers. The inaugural concert staged at the Proact, featuring Elton John, was a great success and it promises to be another unforgettable day when we welcome Tom here this summer.”
Producer Liz Hobbs MBE added: "The club have been so keen for Sir Tom Jones to perform at the club and have patiently waited two years for us to make that possible. Clearly they were right to be so keen. The response to tickets going on sale from the Chesterfield area alone has been absolutely fantastic and clearly we are going to be in for a great night. Sir Tom is really looking forward to a great show at the club."
Although Tom Jones is best known for hits including Kiss, Delilah and If I Only Knew, he is first and foremost a rocker with true rhythm and blues soul. His 50-year career has seen highlights including receiving a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement and a knighthood in 2006 for services to music.
The Voice judge will bring his amazing Welsh sound to Chesterfield for one night only on Saturday, June 7, 2014 so make sure you get your tickets NOW to avoid disappointment!
