 A very difficult show to categorize. First the good news - Tom Jones can still sing and has a really great voice. He is a great blues singer and that's what he wants to do at his time. The problem is that most of his older audience just want his old hits and some of those are cheesy. I loved the new material from his Praise and Blame album. His voice was a revelation to me and the nine piece band including 2 backing singers did just enough to allow his voice to come through. When the songs changed to his old hits the whole feel of the show changed and although the audience loved it, it was really to recapture their youth with some ladies still wanting to wave and throw bras.

I for one like Tom's current material and he seems more relevant now than 30 years ago.
