Tom Jones, Sting and more set to headline first ever Plymouth Summer Sessions

Sir Tom Jones, Sting, Madness and Bryan Adams are headlining the inaugural Plymouth Summer Sessions.

The legendary musicians will take to the stage with Gabrielle, Blondie, The Lightning Seeds and Cassyette as support for the first ever festival.

The shows will take place at the Plymouth Hoe between June 13 and 16, with the ‘It’s Not Unusual’ hitmaker kicking things off on the Thursday with Gabrielle in support.

Bryan Adams will follow the next night with Cassyette as his special guest, while Madness will take to the stage on June 15 after a set from The Lightning Seeds.

Finally, Sting will close the inaugural event with Blondie as his support.

In a statement, Peter Taylor – the co-founder of festival partner Cuffe and Taylor – said: “We are thrilled to bring together an extraordinary lineup of legendary artists for the first-ever Plymouth Summer Sessions.

“We can’t wait to enliven the spectacular location that is The Hoe, with the magic of world-class music.”

Peter described the event as a “celebration of musical heritage and innovation”, and one that will be suitable for the whole family.

He added: “This festival is more than just a series of concerts – it’s a celebration of musical heritage and innovation.

“We invite music lovers of all ages to join us this June for what promises to be an unforgettable journey.”

Meanwhile, Sir Tom has continued to perform ‘Delilah’ despite a backlash as he defiantly belted out the song this summer at Cardiff Castle in Wales and other venues.

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.”
