JONES AND FERRY JOIN POPS PARTY AS DONNY OSMOND ADDS EXTRA DATE!
2004 LIVERPOOL SUMMER POPS

THE superstars Tom Jones and Bryan Ferry will be appearing at the 2004 Summer Pops, while Donny Osmond has confirmed an extra show after his first date sold out
in three days. There are now ten shows lined up for the Kings Dock Arena this July. Already confirmed are Busted, The Corrs, Jamie Cullum, Jools Holland and Bonnie
Raitt. The parade of stars flocking to the Pops is set to continue with some
very special announcements to be made in the coming weeks. Tom Jones, who returns to the Pops on Wednesday July 21st as part of his 'Summer Nights' tour, rocked the Kings Dock back in July 2001 for an amazing sold out show where he performed a stunning medley of hits, including 'Sex Bomb', 'It's not Unusual' and 'What's New Pussycat?'. This will be his only Northern show of the summer.

Bryan Ferry will appear on Friday July 23rd. He last performed at the Pops in 2002, the former Roxy Music star putting in a dazzling performance, which had a sold out crowd singing along to hits including 'Love Is The Drug', 'Jealous Guy' and 'Virginia Plain'. "I love coming to Liverpool", he says, "the response is always amazing."

Donny Osmond was delighted to be able to announce a second Pops show on Wednesday July 14th after the first one sold out so quickly. He said:- "I am really excited about returning to the UK to perform, especially Liverpool. I have played many concerts in the UK throughout my career, but I think these Summer Pops dates are going to be especially memorable!"

The Summer Pops is organised jointly between Liverpool City Council and Chas Cole for CMP Entertainment. Mike Storey, leader of Liverpool City Council, said:- "Thousands of music lovers are going to be flocking to the city for the Summer Pops, and it's set to be a great month of entertainment. Some of the biggest names in the business are on their way to the city, underlining once again why we are the World Capital of Pop!"

Chas Cole said:- "The Pops are really hotting up. Two more legends have confirmed their appearance and it's great news about Donny Osmond selling out so fast and adding a show. Look out for more big name announcements".
