Caught Live! Park life for Sir Tom Jones on the green green grass


TOM Jones turned Kelvingrove Park into his very own Green Green Grass Of Home last night.

The Welsh crooner put on a sensational show at the Bandstand in Glasgow's West End.

He got the party started with his cover of John Lee Hooker's Burning Hell then thrilled the sell-out crowd by rattling through an epic greatest hits set which included timeless classics Sexbomb, Delilah and It's Not Unusual.

It turns out middle aged women really do throw their knickers on stage at Tom Jones gigs though even some of the heavier sets didn't make it that far.

You had to feel for the die-hards dancing away at the front.

It wasn't all laughs though and the great man paid emotional tributes to Elvis and then late wife Linda before a touching version of Tomorrow Night.

He sent his fans - ranging in age from 10 to 80 - home happy by rounding off an incredible night with Thunderball and Kiss before finishing with Strange Things Happening Every Day.

He is 76 years of age. What an absolute legend.

And what a Voice.
