Fans of Sir Tom Jones will have to wait until next year to see the Welsh superstar perform at Newmarket Nights, as the popular music event becomes the latest victim of coronavirus.

His headline show, which was set to take place on Friday, July 24 at Newmarket Racecourses, has been postponed due to the ongoing public health situation.

Organisers have confirmed that they have secured a date for the ‘Delilah’ singer to perform in 2021, where he will be headlining Newmarket Nights on Friday, July 23.

In a statement, Sir Tom Jones said: “I’m really sorry to have to inform you that my shows scheduled for this summer have had to be postponed until next year.

“As you most likely are aware, public performances are sadly not going forward as normal for just about everyone who works in music and entertainment.

“My team have been monitoring the UK government advice on organised gatherings and I now need to take this action to ensure the protection of fans, my crew and everyone who works in support of the shows. It is also important to help ease the pressure on those working on the frontline to fight this virus.

“You all know how much I love performing but everybody’s safety must come first. Behind the scenes we’ve been working with local promoters to re-schedule all the shows from this summer as closely as possible.”
