TICKETS for the Tom Jones concert shelved because of covid-19 have again gone on sale.

In May the music legend announced that his gig, which was scheduled to take pace last Sunday, in Bitts Park, would be postponed to the following year due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The 80-year-old global superstar had been due to perform this year in Carlisle as part of his "A Celebration" tour.

Ticket-holders for the Bitts Park concert will be able to use their ticket for the re-scheduled show next year.

At the time Sir Tom Jones said he was sorry to have to postpone his tour.

He added:"As you most likely are aware, public performances are sadly not going forward as normal for 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 front line to fight this virus.

"You all know how much I love performing but everybody’s safety must come first.

"In the meantime, please stay home, stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon."

Next year's gig will also be on July 25 and again in Bitts Park.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, the chief executive of LHG Events, the promoter of the concert said: “We are extremely sad that we won’t be seeing Sir Tom Jones delight his fans this summer however in these unprecedented times, this is the right decision for all and we fully support the decision.

"We are pleased that we have been able to re-schedule the concert to 2021, when I have no doubt that we’ll all be ready for one huge celebration.

"We are extremely grateful to all of Tom’s team, our venue and ticketing partners for their help and support in re-scheduling these concerts."

Other venues in the tour include Darlington, Hull, Kent, Norwich and Plymouth
