Sir Tom Jones

A host of star acts have been added to the bill by a performance by Sir Tom Jones in Lichfield.


Indie favourites The Pigeon Detectives and Cast will join the city’s own Tony Christie in Beacon Park on June 12.

A spokesperson said: “The Pigeon Detectives arrive with a host of hits under their belt, while Cast emerged from the mid-1990s Britpop scene with a string of anthems including Finetime, Alright and Walkaway.

“Tony Christie brings his string of hits such as Las Vegas, I Did What I Did for Maria and Avenues and Alleyways, but it is undoubtedly Is This The Way to Amarillo? that Tony will be best remembered for. The song sold more than a million copies on its release in 1972 and was awarded a gold disc, then was rediscovered by a new generation in 2005 when it stayed at number one in the UK singles charts for seven weeks.”

Seated tickets sold out almost immediately after being released but additional Gold Circle tickets have been added at £99, as well as new Silver Circle seats priced at £84. Standing tickets are also available, priced at £55 . To book, visit call 01543 412121.
