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.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
