Tom Jones, who is currently judging the latest series of The Voice UK, will be taking to the stage once again later this spring. Aside from a charity gig in March, Music for the Marsden, Jones doesn’t have any other live performances scheduled for 2020 as of yet, meaning the festival announcement will prove a hot topic for fans.
Sadly for UK-based fans, the concert will mean a bit of travelling as the event is KulturPur Festival in Siegen, Germany.
He will be performing on May 27, with tickets going on sale this Saturday.
Standing room only tickets will be going for €69 (£58) and will be available to purchase via the ProTicket website.
Additional postage fees and credit card charges apply.

Jones shared the announcement with his 595,000 Twitter followers today, saying: “Pleased to announce I will be playing #KulturPur Festival in Germany this May!
“Tickets on sale Saturday 10am (local time).”
Fans were pleased to hear Jones was set to be back on stage soon, but those in the UK were disappointed not to get confirmation of any shows on home turf.
“Shame I’m not in Germany… Will get to see you live one day,” one tweeted, while another said: “Wish I could be there.”
The KulturPur announcement comes after Jones returned to the stage for a series of concerts last year having had to pull out of several tour dates the year before.
The It’s Not Unusual hitmaker was forced to cancel five shows in 2018 due to ill health.
Following his recovery, he spoke to The Mirror about his condition, saying: “I was on the road and when we got to London, I was feeling weak.
“I wasn’t getting so good and they said, ‘You had better get checked, your blood and everything.’”
Jones explained he was in hospital for four days while doctors “checked everything” before discovering he had a viral infection.
He was given intravenous antibiotics and was soon on the road to recovery and back to feeling as “strong as ever”.
