Tom Jones has confirmed that his concert in the county will go ahead later in the year.
The concert, which had already been rescheduled once, will now take place when organisers hope most social distancing regulations have been lifted.
It will be held at the Hop Farm Family Park in Beltring, Paddock Wood, on Sunday, September 19.
It follows the news already announced that the Olly Murs concert will go ahead the day before on Saturday, September 18.
While the original date in July fell after the scheduled date for lifting of most social distancing restrictions - June 21- for large scale events published by the Government, the re-scheduled date will allow organisers to ensure the safest, most secure environment.
Sir Tom said: “After such a tough year for us all I’m delighted that I will be able to get back on stage and
perform for you all this summer. We’re going to have one heck of a party."
The first date, which had been in 2020, was to celebrate Sir Tom's 80th birthday.
This year, he has continued as a coach on The Voice, and is getting ready to release a new album – Surrounded By Time – the very first to be recorded in his native Wales.
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of Grandslam Live and LHG Events, promoter of the two concerts said, “It has been such a tough time for everyone with no live events being able to take place for more than a year. We know it will be one epic party weekend at the Hop Farm and we’re looking forward to sharing that with everyone in Kent.”
