Concerts by Sir Tom Jones and Jack Savoretti scheduled to take place at Telford Town Park this summer have been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sir Tom was due to appear in late June but will instead perform at the venue on 27 June 2021. Any tickets purchased remain valid and have been transferred to the new date.

Organisers are still waiting for confirmation as to whether Jack Savoretti’s concert can be rearranged. They are asking that customers who have tickets be patient while a new date for 2021 is confirmed.

Commenting on the cancellation, Sir Tom said: “Public performances are sadly not going forward as normal for just about everyone who works in music and entertainment.

“My team have been monitoring the UK government advice on organised gatherings, and I now need to take this action to ensure the protection of fans, my crew and everyone who works in support of the shows. 

“It is also important to help ease the pressure on those working on the frontline to fight this virus.
“You all know how much I love performing, but everybody’s safety must come first.
“In the meantime, please stay home, stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon.”

Jack Savoretti said: “Every consideration has been given to the safety and wellbeing of the fans, band, crew and event organisers. Considerable effort is being made to reschedule this show. We hope to bring you more news within a month.”
