Sir Tom Jones and Becky Hill set for Forest Live

Sir Tom Jones and Becky Hill have been confirmed for Forest Live 2024.

The Welsh music legend, 83, will headline High Lodge, Thetford Forest with support from Gabrielle on June 28, 2024, while the chart-topper heads to Delamere Forest on June 13.

Pre-sale tickets will be available at 9am on Thursday (30.11.23) before they go on general sale at 9am on Friday (1.12.23).

Rock legend Sting, 72, will top the bill on June 14, and Nile Rodgers and CHIC on June 15 at Delamere.

The former is also playing Thetford on June 22.

Pop star Anne-Marie, 32, recently announced a series of Forest Live shows at Sherwood Pines (June 22), Cannock Chase Forest (June 27), and Westonbirt Arboretum July 5).

The concerts help raise funds for Forestry England to maintain beautiful natural areas.

Meanwhile, Tom is continuing to perform ‘Delilah’ despite a backlash.

The ‘It’s Not Unusual’ hitmaker defiantly belted out the song this summer at Cardiff Castle in Wales and other venues after he publicly challenged a ban on choirs performing his grisly hit about a woman’s murder.

Addressing fans in Cardiff by questioning the Welsh Rugby Union’s decision to stop playing ‘Delilah’ at Wales matches, he said: “Who was the man who didn’t want us to sing ‘Delilah’?

“He stopped the choir from singing but he didn’t stop the crowd from singing it. And we will keep singing it too.”

He’s also said to have told fans: “You can’t stop us singing ‘Delilah’. Can you imagine?… they may stop the choir from singing it, but they haven’t stopped the crowd. Keep on singing it – and I’ll keep on singing it too.”

The 1968 ballad, written by Barry Mason, was removed from playlists at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff due to its lyrics describing a woman’s murder by her boyfriend after she is caught with another man.

Tom previously defended the song in 2014 amid calls to have it banned from being sung at rugby matches.

He said: “I love to hear it sung at rugby games. It makes me very proud to be Welsh.

“I think if they’re looking into the lyric about a man killing a woman, it’s not a political statement.

“It’s just something that happens in life that (a) woman was unfaithful to him and he just loses it.”
