Tom Jones gets his hits out for Glastonbury Tom Jones Tickets

Welsh legend ends Pyramid show with EMF cover

Tom Jones gets his hits out for Glastonbury
Tom Jones returned to Glastonbury for a nostalgia-packed show on the Pyramid Stage today (June 28).

Now a veteran of the festival having first played in 1992, the Welsh soul legend greeted the audience as old friends, declaring: "We love you Glastonbury, God bless you."

Backed by a full house band, Jones delivered a funked-up set of old favourites like 'Delilah' and 'It's Not Unusual' for Sunday afternoon's now-legendary heritage slot.

The show was heavy on the singer’s trademark cover versions 'Kiss' and 'Sex Bomb', but he had one more surprise up his sleeve, encoring with a cover of 'Unbelievable' by '90s electro-rockers EMF.

Tom Jones played:

'The Green Green Grass Of Home'
'Delilah'
'If I Only Knew'
'I'll Never Fall In Love Again'
'If He Should Ever Leave You'
'Mama Told Me Not To Come'
'Linda Lu'
'She's A Lady'
'What's New Pussycat?'
'You Can Leave Your Hat On'
'Sex Bomb'
'Stoned In Love'
'Venus'
'It's Not Unusual'
'Kiss'
'Unbelievable'
