He may be 77-years-old but Tom Jones’ recent performance proves that he’s still got it in him.

It’s been a tough year for the ‘It’s Not Unusual’ hit maker.

Back in September, he abruptly postponed his American tour, citing health reasons.

A press release explained: “Following medical advice, Sir Tom Jones has announced that he will unfortunately be postponing his US tour … Tom sends his sincere apologies to his fans and looks forward to seeing them all again in 2018.”
