Sir Tom Jones is a legend in the world of music, with a career that has spanned over six decades. The iconic singer recently chatted with Robert & Jeanette ahead of his headline performance at HARVEST MOON in April. Sir Tom gives us an insight into his love for performing, the story behind his poignant tribute to his late wife, Linda, and the moment he was knighted by the Queen in 2006.

You'll love the heartwarming story of how Sir Tom's success in music allowed him to retire his father from the hazardous coal mines. This tale is reminiscent of Elvis Presley's famous act of buying Graceland for his mother, underlining the shared humanity and familial affection of these music icons.

In the chat, he opens up about the touching backstory of his song, "I Won't Crumble With You If You Fall," a tribute to his late wife, Linda. Their enduring love is beautifully encapsulated in this song. As Sir Tom explains, his wife urged him not to crumble with her when she was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. This song is a testament to their love and her strength, making it an important part of his performances.


Joining Tom Jones on this momentous occasion will be performances from GIN WIGMORE and Kiwi supergroup THE MAGNIFICENT 7 featuring Peter Urlich, Jordan Luck and Eddie Rayner.

Tickets are available from Ticketmaster, with Reserved Seated and General Admission options available. Harvest Moon is a family-friendly event with youth tickets available in General Admission areas.
