Belladrum 2014 readies us for Summer with, arguably, the biggest names ever announced to headline the Tartan Heart Festival.
Topping the bill on the Friday night is quite simply the legend that is Tom Jones, let’s repeat that again because it’s taken a while to sink in for us, Topping the bill on the Friday night is quite simply the legend that is Tom Jones. Whilst latterly he has taken the role as judge of BBC’s The Voice, his music career has spanned almost fifty years gaining a bucketful of awards on the way including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music and a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement.
His hits include ‘It’s Not Unusual’, ‘Delilah’ and ‘What’s New Pussycat’ and it’s clear from this year’s impressive tour schedule that the 72 year old has never lost his passion for performing live. An icon in so many way the knighted Welshman will bring something that’s not been seen at Belladrum before, expect the busiest main stage appearance. Ever.
“Sir Tom has long been a hero of mine and it is a singular privilege to be able to welcome him to a Highland stage,’ said festival promoter Joe Gibbs.
